The Yankees and WCBS (880) have agreed to extend their current radio agreement through the 2013 season, the team and radio station announced Thursday.

The Yankees and WCBS also announced that John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman are expected to return to the booth next season. Sterling and Waldman have been the radio broadcast team since 2005.

WCBS, which has broadcast Yankees games since 2002, will broadcast all regular-season and postseason games in 2013, plus select spring training games.

The Mets' deal with WFAN (660), which also is owned by CBS Radio, expires after the 2013 season.
