Deals were finalized this afternoon allowing WCBS-AM 880 to air New York Yankees games during the 2002 season. In early November, WCBS-TV became the new local television station to be home of the New York Yankees. Now, WCBS-AM has also received this programming for the radio. The contract between WCBS-AM and the New York Yankees lasts for the next five baseball seasons. Prior to WCBS-AM 880, the New York Yankees had a 21-year history on New York radio with WABC-AM 770. Congratulations to WCBS-AM 880 and the New York Yankees!
