The franchise yesterday "consummated a 10-year deal" with CBS Radio-owned WFAN, moving over from WCBS. Games will be simulcast on WFAN-AM and WFAN-FM. Play-by-play broadcaster John Sterling is "expected to return for his 25th season, but the fate of color commentator Suzyn Waldman isn't clear yet" (, 9/11).

PREDATORY PRACTICES: The Predators and FS Tennessee yesterday announced that the net "will broadcast at least 70 regular-season games" during the '13-14 season.
