MSG RADIO TALKS THE TALK -- WILL KNICKS AND RANGERS WALK?
Published January 9, 1998
MSG Radio Network "is launching its first non-event radio programming," as WABC-AM in N.Y. will air "Sunday Night Sports Talk With John Sterling and Michael Kay" from 6:00-9:00pm on Sundays, according to Phil Mushnick of the N.Y. POST. Sterling and Kay are the Yankees' radio voices. Mushnick adds that it "is becoming a foregone conclusion that after next season, when WFAN's deal to carry Knick and Ranger games expires, those broadcasts will be carried over the MSG Radio Network. Whether MSG continues to buy time from another station, or purchases a station for its own remains to be seen" (Phil Mushnick, N.Y. POST, 1/9).
