Genesis Communications’ News Talk WWBA-AM Tampa will be the host station to all New York Yankee home games during the 2012 season in that market. 72 Yankees home games will air, including both pre game and post games. Last year’s Yankee home games aired on Genesis’ ESPN AM 1040 in Tampa. Yankees HQ and Spring Training facilities are also located in-market.
Said Genesis PD Len Weiner: “We’re excited to continue to bring the New York Yankees to Tampa Bay on the area’s only all-news radio station, AM 820 News WWBA. The combination of Yankees baseball and all news is a powerful one, and we’re happy to be able to deliver this dynamic duo to Bay Area listeners.”
