John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will move with the Yankees to their new radio home on WFAN and begin their 10th season together in the team's radio booth.
The move was expected, but it did not become official until yesterday, when the station also released a 10-game preseason schedule that begins Feb. 27 against the Pirates. Sweeny Murti, the longtime Yankees reporter for WFAN, will be part of the pregame and postgame coverage.
The Yankees remained within the same corporate family because WCBS and WFAN both are owned by CBS Radio. But WFAN executives had to sign off on the pair remaining in their roles on the new station.
"After nearly a decade of calling play-by-play, John and Suzyn have established themselves as New York's most recognizable broadcast team," Don Bouloukos, CBS Radio's senior vice president and market manager, said in a news release. "We're pleased to welcome them back to the booth."
