CBS Radio and the Yankees are reaching an agreement to have the Bombers broadcast their games on WFAN beginning in 2014. The deal between the Yankees and CBS, which owns WFAN, is reported to be worth $15-20 million a year for ten years, which would be the richest deal in Major League Baseball.
As you may already know, the Mets have their games aired on WFAN, and have been since the 1980s. There's only room for one team on the station, so the Mets will have to search for a new home. There are reports surfacing that the Mets and Clear Channel could work out a deal, but it remains to be seen if a deal between the two sides comes to fruition.
What does this mean for the current members of the Yankees' radio team, John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman? Well, Sterling's job appears to be safe, but it's unknown whether or not Waldman will remain with her radio partner. Sterling sticking around is... well, fine, I guess. But it'd be interesting to see who the Yankees replace Waldman with if in fact the team doesn't bring her back.
Do you think a move to WFAN is a good one for the Yankees?
