The New York Yankees radio broadcasts returned back on 640 Fox Sports South Florida WMEN-AM on Wednesday night. The great start by the Yankees along with a demand by some South Florida residents impacted station management.
No Yankees exhibition games along with the first seven weeks of the regular season were aired. The station website mentioned they were unable to broadcast them due the Major League Baseball restrictions.
640 Sports had been an affiliate of the New York Yankees Radio Network since the 2008 season. The station flipped to a sports talk format in March 2008.
