New York Yankees Ink Multi-Year Broadcast Deal With WFAN AM & FM
The New York Yankees today announced that they have reached a multi-year broadcast agreement with CBS RADIO for Yankees games to be simulcast on WFAN-AM 660 and WFAN-FM 101.9 beginning in 2014.
Both radio stations will carry all Yankees regular season and postseason games, Yankees pregame and postgame shows, as well as broadcasts of select Yankees spring training games.
CBS RADIO has also acquired Spanish-language Yankees broadcasts rights on a multi-year basis.
“We are extremely excited to have reached an agreement with CBS RADIO,” said Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. “The paramount consideration was how our fans would best be able to hear our games. Having the Yankees on WFAN-AM/FM provides listeners in the New York metropolitan area and beyond with superior broadcast quality and vast territorial signal strength.”
“We are privileged to welcome the New York Yankees to WFAN,” said Dan Mason, CBS RADIO President and CEO. “There is no bigger name in baseball than the Yankees, nor an organization so steeped in tradition. As the nation’s premier sports radio station we look forward to capturing all the excitement surrounding the team, and bringing it to millions of fans for many years to come.”
