WASHINGTON - Are you ready?

It’s here. Football season really begins today as the Redskins begin their season’s journey in Ashburn with the start of training camp.

What’s that? You can’t spend each day at Redskins Park evaluating rookies or breaking down Jason Campbell? Well, you can keep up just fine with a radio (or computer, for that matter).

Triple X ESPN Radio (94.3 FM, 92.7 FM and 730 AM) will have a front row seat from its Redskins Park studio. Each day from noon-1 p.m., it’s “Redskins Lunch” with Larry Michael and Bram Weinstein, featuring the latest camp news.

On your way home, it’s “The John Riggins Show” from 4-7 p.m. and more coverage from inside camp. It should be interesting because Dan Snyder-owned Triple X ESPN has promised unprecedented access. You can also go to for live camp news.

Meanwhile, Sports Talk 980-AM starts things at 9 a.m. with “The Sports Reporters.” Andy Pollin and Steve Czaban will be talking Redskins and Jerry Coleman will be filing reports from Redskins Park. “The Brian Mitchell Show” from noon-3 p.m. will keep the Redskins talk moving with plenty of guests and lots of burgundy and gold talk.

“The John Thompson Show” from 3-7 p.m. with Doc Walker and Al Koken will be talking all things Redskins from now through the Super Bowl.

This is when Doc shines.
