There are reports that the Yankees have re-signed with WCBS Radio for next year. The one year contract extension keeps the Yankees where they have been since 2002. ESPN 98.7 had tried to get the Yankees rights, but now will probably shift their attention to the Mets, whose contract with WFAN expires after this year. The Mets moving to an FM station would not be a first for them. In 1968 and 1969, they were on suburban station WJRZ and WABC FM in the city. In 1970, they were on WJRZ and WNBC FM. They’ve been with their current station WFAN since 1987, starting out at WHN before WFAN took over.
Speaking of ESPN, on September 7th at 2:00 PM, their 1050 frequency becomes ESPN Deportes, a Spanish language sports network. ESPN New York will now be heard on at 98.7 FM.
