The NEW YORK POST is reporting that CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WOR-A/NEW YORK has made a bid to win NEW YORK YANKEES baseball radio rights that exceeds the $14 million paid by current flagship CBS RADIO News WCBS-A.
The POST's PHIL MUSHNICK and DON BURKE report that unnamed sources tell them CLEAR CHANNEL has entered the bidding for the YANKEES (whose radio deal expires after this season) against CBS, which also owns Sports WFAN-A-F and holds NEW YORK METS rights, and ESPN RADIO, which operates Sports WEPN-F (ESPN NEW YORK 98.7FM) and was assumed to be another bidder for the YANKEES package. The METS radio contract is also expiring at the end of this season.
