We try to provide you with the most extensive Buffalo Bills coverage on the internet here at Buffalo Rumblings. With training camp opening to the public this Thursday, here's an exhaustive list on how to get the absolute best information on the Bills as they stay at St. John Fisher College.
To get the most up-to-the-second information, Twitter is the way to go. As always, you can follow Buffalo Rumblings on Twitter (@BuffRumblings, @BrianGalliford and @MattRichWarren), but there are several Bills reporters that will be on scene and live-tweeting updates. I've compiled a pretty comprehensive list you can follow here, which includes local media, bloggers, and team employees. (You don't need a Twitter account to see the list.)If you're looking for quality over quantity in your Twitter experience, here are a few must-follows. As the new official voice of the Buffalo Bills, WGR 550 in Buffalo is running several shows remotely from Rochester over the next several weeks and will have a glut of reporters on the scene. Joe Buscaglia (@JoeB_WGR) is the best Twitter account to follow from WGR, while Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) serves as a great catch-all for reports from The Buffalo News. Other good Twitter accounts to follow for camp are WGR's Sal Capaccio (@SalSports), Associated Press Buffalo-based reporter John Wawrow (@john_wawrow), and Bills Digest and CBS Sports scribe Mark Ludwiczak (@MarkLud12).
With the increased access of their new agreement, WGR (@WGR550) on the radio is not only airing both their morning (6 AM to 10 AM) and afternoon (3 PM to 7 PM) shows live from Pittsford, they are premiering a brand new two-hour program dedicated to the Buffalo Bills. Every weeknight from 7 to 9, John Murphy, the "Voice of the Bills" on game days, will be hosting a show which premieres tomorrow (Thursday) night. You can listen on the airwaves throughout Western NY at AM 550. They also have a smartphone app and you can listen on WGR550.com, as well as read their insight in online posts.
If television is more your style, all the local networks in Buffalo and Rochester will be covering camp. In Buffalo, WKBW Channel 7 (@JeffRussoWKBW) and WGRZ Channel 2 will be your best bet with the most experience. In print, The Buffalo News and the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle have already stepped up their game in print coverage and online.
Last, but most definitely not least, the Buffalo Bills (@BuffaloBills) have their own network of information that is excellent. Chris Brown (@ChrisBrownBills) leads the way reporting news on the team's website and blog, featuring exclusive interviews and video from camp. They have an excellent smart phone app, as well, to keep up on the go.
"Web Rumblings," our daily links post, will continue to serve as a catch-all from all of these sources and more for folks not interested in following all those various sources. We'll highlight the best and latest information in front page articles, too. The off-season is over and training camp begins tomorrow. Football is back!
