Raissman---Yankees may be looking to acquire radio station as Cardinals did...

Bob Raissman's columns on sports media & business are always interesting. Among his topics today are-- * Yankees looking into buying a local radio station...the whole baseball & radio topic has radically changed since Bud Selig went in & sold all the local teams' rights to satellite radio without their permission. Having the local radio rights is now of much less value. * Although most listeners, fans, & Yankee brass like the pairing of Suzyn Waldman & John Sterling, Suzyn hasn't been thrilled with it, & was more than looking forward to the off season. I like both of them, & couldn't live without John Sterling's voice on the broadcast. However, something needs to be worked out where everyone knows Sterling is the #1 guy, fine. But he needs to allow his partner to have some autonomy. The Waldman pairing has a chance of succeeding if John, the greatest voice ever in my opinion, will let it. Raissman adds a few points about how Cardinal fans are already complaining they can't get the signal of the new, weaker Cardinal radio station.

  • Indeed, Pinstripe, but as often happens in these cases, you end up
    with a wimpy signal.
