We’ll be hearing a lot more “See Ya!” on Yankee games. Michael Kay has signed a multi-year extension to remain the Yankees lead broadcaster on the YES Network.
Kay, with the network since its inception in 2002, has been honored with three Emmy Awards and 21 nominations during that time. He’ll also keep his hosting duties with CenterStage and other specials.
“I could not be happier,” Kay says. “Continuing to live a childhood dream as the TV voice of the Yankees while working with the best group of people in the business on the country’s best regional sports network is as good as it gets. I can’t wait to start another season.”
In addition to his YES work, Kay is an afternoon radio personality on ESPN 98.7 FM. In December, Radio Ink magazine named his the second-most influential local sports talk show in America.
“We are pleased that Michael will continue to play a vital role here at YES,” John Filippelli, president of production and programming at the YES Network, says. “For the past decade on YES, Michael has been the voice of the Yankees deftly capturing the drama, intensity, and passion associated with the greatest franchise in sports. He is one of the pre-eminent play-by-play announcers in baseball and is a first-rate interviewer as well, as evidenced by his stellar CenterStage.”
