New York Yankees Announce Extended Deal to Remain on 101.9 FM/66 AM WFAN The Fan and Year-Round Yankees Shows with Keith McPherson

Audacy’s WFAN 101.9 FM / 660 AM (WFAN-FM/AM) has announced a multi-year extension to its flagship broadcast and digital partnership with the New York Yankees for both English and Spanish broadcasts.

As part of the extended partnership, English broadcasts of Yankees baseball will continue to be heard on WFAN and streamed digitally via the Audacy app for fans within the Yankees broadcast territory. WFAN will also continue to produce the Spanish language broadcasts for local radio affiliates as well as for the Audacy app.

“The New York Yankees are the city’s premier sports franchise and WFAN is the city’s premier sports platform, so together we form a potent combination for fans and client partners,” said Chris Oliviero, Market President, Audacy New York. “2022 is our 21st consecutive season of broadcasting the Bronx Bombers, and we look forward to continuing to have the honor of being the soundtrack to more memorable and historic pinstripe moments.”

“The Yankees are excited to extend our longstanding relationship with WFAN and Audacy,” said Lonn Trost, Chief Operating Officer, New York Yankees. “WFAN has been our flagship station for over two decades, and we look forward to fans continuing to enjoy Yankees baseball over its airways and on the Audacy app.”

Beyond the game broadcasts, later this season WFAN will also launch additional year-round Yankees-themed content, included as part of station host Keith McPherson’s weeknight program. WFAN will also continue to collaborate with the Yankees on an assortment of listener contests and promotions for premium fan experiences. In addition, as part of Audacy’s partnership with Major League Baseball, WFAN and the Yankees will produce co-branded podcasts. Audacy is the official audio and podcast partner of Major League Baseball.

WFAN has served as the flagship station of the Yankees since 2014. From 2002 to 2014, games were heard on sister station WCBS 880 (WCBS-AM). John Sterling, Suzyn Waldman and Sweeny Murti are the broadcasters for WFAN’s English broadcasts, and Rickie Ricardo, Francisco Rivera and Rene Luna are the voices for WFAN’s Spanish broadcasts.
