Updated 3:35 p.m.: Michael Kay and the YES Network have finalized the three-year contract in September. According to a release published by the TV network. Kay will continue to be the lead play-by-play guy on the Yankee broadcasts and the overall voice of the YES Network. The network heads issued rather hyperbolic praise for Kay.
“We are pleased that Michael will continue to be the voice of the Yankees on YES while also hosting our signature CenterStage interview show,” John Filippelli, YES’ president of production and programming. “New Yorkers have long identified him with the Yankees and as a sports authority in general, and he is considered one of the best play-by-play men in baseball. His knowledge of the game and his ability to articulate in a clear, accurate and succinct manner make him an invaluable member of the YES team.”
