NEWSDAY's NEIL BEST reported SUNDAY that MIKE FRANCESA, whose CBS RADIO Sports WFAN-A-F/NEW YORK show was until recently simulcast on the YES NETWORK, will be simulcast on national sports cable network FOX SPORTS 1.
BEST cited "a radio industry source with knowledge of the agreement" in the report, noting that FRANCESA himself said on the air that an official announcement of the resumption of his television simulcast could come early this week and that it might start before MARCH Madness.
FOX recently purchased YES NETWORK, which dropped FRANCESA in favor of crosstown rival ESPN Sports WEPN-F (ESPN NEW YORK 98.7 FM) afternoon host MICHAEL KAY.
