Yankees exploring creating YES Radio

The Yankees are exploring creating YES Radio. The Yankees are closing in on reacquiring a controlling stake in YES Network in partnership with Amazon and Sinclair.

As reported by The New York Post, the idea of a new YES Radio component is part of a likely evolution of YES after the Yankees’ regional sports network takeover is finalized.

Leveraging the networks and bandwidth of both Sinclair and Amazon, YES Radio could have massive distribution possibilities, along with the existing carriage advantages for YES Network being associated with Sinclair. The Yankees would have the opportunity to increase exposure for YES programs and personalities.

Sources also indicate to The Post, the Yankees’ digital library could be hosted digitally via Amazon Prime in the future.
