Is Michael Kay still on YES?
Yes. Michael Kay is still on YES.
Michael Kay, the longtime voice of the New York Yankees on the YES Network, has also hosted “CenterStage” for the past two decades, where he has sat down with some of the biggest personalities in sports, entertainment, and politics.
Kay can also be heard on ESPN Radio in New York City during his afternoon broadcast.
Michael Kay’s TV Shows
He started anchoring a drive-time talk show on WEPN in 2002. (the former WEVD). Don La Greca and Peter Rosenberg are now co-hosting the show.
In the same year, he hosted CenterStage on the YES Network, a sports and entertainment interview show.
Kay used to broadcast live from the vicinity of the stadium where the Yankees were playing that night during previous baseball seasons (contractual exclusivity prohibited him from hosting the show from inside Yankee Stadium).
This isn’t the case anymore.
During the baseball season from 2009 to 2011, the 6:00 hour was co-titled New York Baseball Tonight. If Kay was announcing a Yankee game that evening, he didn’t generally show at that hour.
This section was frequently hosted by Don La Greca, who also appeared alongside Kay on the rest of The Michael Kay Show.
“In the words of Billy Joel, life is a series of hellos and goodbyes, and I’m afraid it’s time for farewell again,” Kay generally says before advertising the next program when he’s on the air at the end of his show.
On February 3, 2014, Kay debuted his first-ever simulcast on the YES Network by tossing a bottle of Diet Coke into the trash, a move designed to mock the channel’s previous occupant Mike Francesa.
The pre-planned move was widely panned.
