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.
