The Yankees Remaining on WCBS-AM in 2012

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.

CBS anticipates that announcers John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will return to the booth next season.

Sterling has called every Yankee game on radio since 1989. His on-air partner Waldman joined the team in 2005 as the color commentator.
