The New York Mets and Sports Radio 66 WFAN announced an extension of their broadcast partnership for live play-by-play coverage of Mets preseason, regular season, and postseason games. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Additionally WFAN will produce exclusive Mets programming with players and coaches, daily highlights packages, and pregame and postgame reports both on-air on WFAN-AM 660 and on the station’s online audio stream at www.wfan.com. For the first time, all of the station’s Mets content, including game broadcasts, will be available on FM radio at 92.3 HD3.
The extension is slated to begin February 2009 with live coverage of the team’s training camp from Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Mets broadcasts have been a staple of WFAN’s marquee programming since the station’s inception in 1987.
