Yankees Radio Voice Returns for Another Year

The Yankees agreement with WCBS was ending this year which many thought would lead to the end of John Sterling‘s tenure as their radio announcer. However, the two sides reached a deal that will keep Sterling and his companera, Suzyn Waldman, in the both for at least one more year.

I’m not a huge fan of either of them, especially Waldman, but then again there aren’t a lot of radio personalities that I am a fan of. It’s one of those things where you might not be happy that Sterling is back, but at least Craig Carton is not replacing him.

Still, as somebody who works for ESPN New York on the side, the idea of ESPN purchasing the rights to broadcasting Yankees games was exciting for me. Either way, nothing is happening right now. We’ll see what happens next year. Until then, enjoy another year of Sterling’s warbles.

    THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN! I think Sterling is great, although he does go over the top sometimes with the name games on home run calls. He might also need a pair of glasses. But I love that he is so original, so different from other announcers. He is probably the most dramatic play by play announcer I have ever heard. And he makes the games exciting when we win … and excruciating when we lose. I'd much rather have Sterling's over the top craziness than that boring matter of fact style. Have you listened to the Mets radio broadcasts? I could have sworn those were play by play of funerals at CitiField. Susan Waldman is another story. She doesn't really add anything, and where does she go after 8 innings?

      She goes downstairs to stand by the dugout to prepare for the post-game interview and the locker room report, which she does pretty well.
