The extension gives WCBS NY rights to air games through the 2012 season. The Yankees retain the option to extend the agreement for another year after 2012, but the sides plan to enter into discussions to extend the terms of the deal even longer.
The deal likely also means that announcers John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will most likely come back in their same roles.
“It is anticipated that radio announcers John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will each return to the radio booth,” the Yankees said in an e-mail Friday.
Sterling has broadcast every Yankee game since 1989. Waldman joined him behind the mic in 2005.
