WOR 710 to be New Flagship Radio Station of the Mets

WOR logo GAttention fans of the New York Metropolitans, we have some news: The team has found a new radio home. Clear Channel and the Mets have struck a deal to make WOR-AM 710 the new radio station for those lovable losers.

The Mets had been searching for a radio deal since WFAN announced it was dropping them for the Yankees next season.

“We look at this investment not only as an opportunity to establish WOR as a destination to a broader audience, but to also to drive further awareness and growth of the Mets through our unique multi-platform capabilities and programming — radio, digital, outdoor and live events,” said John Hogan, chairman and CEO of Clear Channel, in a statement.

The Clear Channel deal is good for five years. The over/under on number of Mets World Series wins during that time is set at two.
