New York Sports Radio War

WFAN 660 AM is a broadcasting pioneer, America's first all-sports radio station. Here in New York, sports aficianados have the luxury of being able to tune in anytime to get a fix on baseball, football, basketball, even hockey. Along came ESPN Radio, 1050 AM, to compete for listeners.  Recently, ESPN switched to a stronger signal on the FM dial WEPN 98.7. Is it any surprise that CBS Radio has purchased 101.9 FM and will simulcast WFAN programming?

Who will win the largest share of the New York sports audience?  What shows will listeners continue to choose -- Mike and Mike? Boomer and Carton? Mike Francesa's Mike'd Up? The Michael Kay Show? Will new personalities join the likes of Joe Benigno and Steve Somers or Mike Lupica and Stephen A. Smith? Tune in as the sports radio war heats up.
