The New York Yankees announced late this afternoon that the team has extended its radio contract with WCBS 880 through 2012.
A statement from CBS Radio says the team “retains the option to extend the agreement for another year,” but both sides “intend to continue discussions about a longer term partnership.”
Yankee games have been on WCBS since 2002 when the all-news station outbid 77 WABC for the rights.
Sterling has called every Yankee game on radio since 1989. His on-air partner Waldman joined the team in 2005 as the color commentator.
