Yankees announcers are some of the most iconic voices in baseball. Today, the Yankees have a three-person broadcasting team that consists of play-by-play announcer Michael Kay, color commentator Paul O’Neill, and sideline reporter Meredith Marakovits.
The Main Announcers
The Yankees have a three-man booth for most games. The main announcers are Michael Kay, Paul O’Neill, and Ken Singleton.
Kay has been the play-by-play announcer for the Yankees since 1989. He is also the host of “CenterStage” on the YES Network, and he previously worked as a sports anchor at WPIX. O’Neill, a former Yankee outfielder, has been an analyst on Yankees broadcasts since 2002. Singleton, who played for the Orioles and Expos during his Major League career, has been part of the YES broadcast team since 1997.
The Yankees also have two other broadcasters who call select games throughout the season. David Cone, a former Yankee pitcher, serves as a game analyst occasionally. John Sterling, the radio voice of the Yankees, calls TV games when Kay has conflicts with his duties as host of “CenterStage.”
The Substitute Announcers
The New York Yankees have a long and storied history, dating back to their inception in 1903. They’ve been home to some of the greatest players in baseball history, and have won 27 World Series championships. They’re one of the most beloved and successful franchises in all of sports.
Today, the Yankees are broadcast on the YES Network, which is available to most cable and satellite providers in the New York tri-state area. The YES Network’s primary broadcast team consists of play-by-play announcer Michael Kay and color commentators Paul O’Neill and Ken Singleton. However, due to Kay’s commitments to other projects (such as hosting his own radio show), he is not always available to call Yankees games. When Kay is unable to call a game, substitue announcers take his place.
Some of the most well-known substitute announcers include John Sterling, Suzyn Waldman, Charlie Steiner, and Ken Rosenthal. Sterling is the team’s primary radio play-by-play announcer, while Waldman is the longtime radio color commentator. Steiner is a former television play-by-play announcer for the Yankees, while Rosenthal is a current television field reporter for Fox Sports.
The Yankees have arious announcers for their games. The main ones are: Michael Kay, Ken Singleton, Paul O’Neill, David Cone, John Sterling, and Suzyn Waldman.
