WEPN Signs Michael Kay to a Three-Year Extension

Michael Kay will remain on double duty for several years to come. Kay inked a three-year deal as one of the main voices on ESPN New York 98.7 FM/WEPN. Kay hosts the afternoon slot from 3 to 7 p.m. with Don LaGreca, in a pivotal sports talk battle with the venerable Mike Francesa on WFAN.

“We’re delighted that Michael Kay will remain with ESPN New York 98.7,” WEPN VP/general manager Dave Roberts tells FishbowlNY. “Michael’s work ethic and his overall knowledge of sports in New York are key ingredients for nothing but success. He is a true professional and a winner.”

A Fordham University graduate, Kay has been the Yankees TV voice since the YES Network debuted in 2002. That same year, Kay launched his drive time show on ESPN Radio in New York.
