Sports Radio WFAN Begins New Era in their History With Broadcast on 101.9 FM

In it's 25th Year WFAN Will Simulcast on FM in New York

WFAN announced it would begin airing on 101.9 FM in addition to 660 AM at 12:01 a.m. Friday. CBS Radio announced the simulcast plan earlier this month but had not previously set a firm date for it to begin.

The likely scenario would put the new CBS Sports Radio Network on 660 AM and local programming on FM. WFAN's top rated afternoon host Mike Francesa has said that he would continue to broadcast on AM and FM in the event of any programming changes. But as you can see below he might want to cut back a little on his scheduled 1p.m.-6:30 p.m. daily shift which includes a live television broadcast on the YES sports network...
