Yankees, Ibanez Heroics Catapult YES Network to Record Setting Night

Moments after Raul Ibanez crushed his second home run of the night, YES Network was on the air with complete coverage of the dramatic ALCS win.

Michael Kay was in place at the Stadium with David Cone, while Bob Lorenz, John Flaherty, and Jack Curry supplemented from the studio.

As expected, fans couldn’t get enough Yankee talk, switching to YES Network following the playoff game on TBS. It became the highest-rated first-round post-game on the YES in eight years (October 9, 2004).

Last night’s wrap-up to the dramatic outcome averaged 128,000 households or a 1.73 HH rating. It peaked from 11:30 to 11:45 p.m. with a 2.47 household rating or an estimated 182,000 households.

The Yankees can advance to the ALCS with a victory tonight against Baltimore. Win or lose, the YES Network will have the special edition post-game show.

YES Network Celebrates 10 Years with Anniversary Program

Popping the cork on a milestone, the YES Network airs a special March 13–10 Years of YES.

The two-hour program takes viewers down memory lane from the past decade.  The regional sports network debuted March 19, 2002.

Along with some memorable moments from YES telecasts, game announcers will recount their own tales of standout moments.

The show will focus heavily on Yankees coverage, but not exclusively. There will be highlights from the Nets, plus interview show Centerstage with Michael Kay, and Yankeeography with John Sterling.

Segments include:

  • A look at the 2009 Yankees’ World Series winning season, along numerous milestones during the season, none bigger than Derek Jeter‘s 3,000th hit.
  • Recalling the Nets back-to-back NBA Finals appearances
  • A roundtable discussion with YES broadcasters Kay, Ken Singleton, John Flaherty, Ian Eagle, and Bob Lorenz reflecting on their favorite on-air moments.
  • Interviews with Mike Francesa and Chris “Mad Dog” Russo about their pioneering WFAN simulcast on YES.

YES, WCBS-AM Announcers Celebrate Derek Jeter’s 3000th Hit in ‘Style’

He was already “Mr. November” for a World Series home run in 2001. Now, Derek Jeter has added to his amazing legacy, becoming the first player in New York Yankees history to become “Mr. 3000.”  

But, it was another longball that lifted the Yankee captain into history.

YES Network’s Michael Kay was behind the mic Saturday afternoon in the Bronx as Jeter became just the 28th member of the exclusive club.

‘That’s drilled, deep to left field, going back [Matt] Joyce, looking up— See Ya! 3,000! History with an exclamation point!” Kay screamed. “Oh, what a way to join the 3,000 hit club! Derek Jeter has done it in grand style.” (Watch the clip)

As teammates mobbed Jeter at home plate, Kay and his colleague John Flaherty paused to let the pictures speak for themselves.

After a one minute 45-second respite, Kay resumed his exuberance for the unlikely entrance into 3,000.
