Via Bob Raissman –
The Yankees will be staying on WCBS Radio – For at least one more year.
Radio sources say the Bombers will sign a one-year extension with WCBS-AM, its radio home for the past 10 seasons.
Sources said ESPN-1050 was in the running for the Yankees radio package, but Yankees brass had issues with 1050′s weak signal.
With the package staying at WCBS it’s likely Suzyn Waldman and John Sterling, aka, Ma and Pa Pinstripe, will return to the radio microphones for the 2012 season.
John Sterling is likely to return to Yankees radio booth after sources say Bombers will ink a new deal with WCBS-AM.
Sounds like ESPN told the Yankees that they should have a stronger signal in 2013.
I figure that the Yankees want to be aligned with an all-sports talk station at some point, like the Mets have with WFAN.
Now, it would really be cool if the Yankees started their own radio station…which I think I suggested in the past, here, once before…
