WFAN To Host Yankees Games In 2014

UPDATE: It is official! We can all talk about it, even you Michael Kay, and not jinx it.

Just a few days after I pissed off @YankeesWFAN Sweeny Murti the Yankees announced that they will be moving their radio broadcasts to WFAN beginning in 2014. The Yankees have had a good relationship with CBS since moving over to 880 AM in 2002. This move would move the Yankees broadcasts to the very powerful 660 AM station as well as the FAN on 101.9. This deal could be worth an estimated $15,000,000 to $20,000,000 in added revenue for the next ten years for the suddenly penny pinching Yankees.

While nothing is final or official yet I wonder what this means for the future of John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. You would have to think that the Yankees would like to bring them both along to the new station but then again I did not see Kim Jones leaving either so you never know. If one of them leaves or is not brought back it is much more likely to be Waldman and not Sterling in my opinion.
