The Washington Times on Thursday unveiled a new digital magazine and mobile app designed to give Washington Redskins fans unparalleled pre-game and postgame coverage on their mobile devices and computers.
The launch of the Redskins Report corresponds with the team’s first preseason game Thursday night against the New England Patriots.
The free magazine can be accessed through any device with a modern browser at Redskins.WashingtonTimes.com, or fans can download official apps from the Apple and Google Play stores.
“We’re proud of the technology that powers the new Redskins Report magazine and which resizes our content for the optimum reading experience on each device you own. And we’re just as proud of the detailed coverage our great team can give fans heading into game weekends, and looking back at game results,” said John Solomon, the editor and vice president for content and business development at The Washington Times. “We hope this is the beginning of a growing mobile opportunity for our sports fans across the country.”
The first time readers access the app, they’ll need to set up a free account with a login, email address and password. After that, they can read as often as they like for free.
The magazine will be updated each Thursday night before weekend games with all of the preview content, analysis and columns produced by the Times’ sports staff, including Zac Boyer, Todd Dybas and Thom Loverro. The magazine and app will be updated in real time after weekend games end with postgame interviews and analysis.
“The app will provide a convenient way for readers to access our Redskins coverage,” said Times sports editor Marc Lancaster. “We’re excited to get our work before a wider audience.”
The magazine is the outgrowth of a new content and marketing partnership announced last month between the Times and the Redskins aimed at getting more content to fans. Washington Redskins figures will contribute occasionally to the magazine’s content.
