Back to northern California to look at the media covering the OAKLAND A’S.
Newspaper- The Oakland Tribune is the daily newspaper in the city. It’s online sports page is housed as part of Inside Bay Area.com. Beat writers John Hickey (Twitter) can be found on a page dedicated to the A’s as well as on the Bay Area News Group’s Inside the A’s blog. The Bay Area News Group also has a stable of sports columnists in Monte Poole (Twitter), Carl Steward (Twitter), Tim Kawakami (Twitter), and Mark Purdy (Twitter) who will comment on the team.
Also covering the A’s is the San Francisco Chronicle. Its online sports page (and the rest of the paper online) is part of SF Gate.com. The sports section has a page dedicated to the A’s. Beat writer Susan Slusser (Twittter) is the lead beat writer who also maintains the The Drumbeat Blog. With columnists like Scott Ostler (Twitter), John Shea (Twitter) and Ann Killion (Twitter), you can expect plenty to be written about the A’s.
Sports Radio- 95.7 The Game serves as the flagship in the Oakland A’s Radio Network. Ken Korach and Vince Cotroneo (Twitter) call the games. Amaury Pi-Gonzalez and Mando Hernández-Doulen have the Spanish language broadcast at KTRB. You can also follow the team on KNBR in San Francisco.
Television- Greg Kuiper and Ray Fosse have the television call of the games on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Shooty Babbit and Mindi Bach (Twitter) handle studio duty. As part of the San Francisco metro you can follow the A’s on KGO, KNTV, KPIX, and KTVU.
Please add your thoughts and other media outlets covering the team in the comments.
