Redskins radio debuts today

Even though WTEM has been jokingly called “Redskins Radio” for years, team owner Dan Synder is not content to let the independent media, who hates the Redskins, cover the team. Today, he takes action by launching Radio Pravda Triple X ESPN Radio – The Home of the Redskins. The planned debut is at 4 p.m. with The John Riggins Show.

Spread over three stations with signals (94.3 FM, 92.7 FM and 730 AM) coming from outside of the immediate DC area, Triple X ESPN Radio may be hard to hear inside the Beltway, particularly at night when 730 AM powers down to 5 watts. Let us know if you can actually pick up any of the signals from where you are located.

Also, I could not help but notice that one of the helmets on the Triple X ESPN Radio site has black stripes and a black facemask. Is Snyder finally adding cliched black trim to the Redskins look like the 49ers, Eagles, and Lions did?

Paul Lukas has already been advised.

    On his blog, Bram Weinstein admits: “Honestly the signal will be an issue.”
