Michael Kay’s Profession & Career

Kay began his professional career in 1982 as a general assignment writer for the New York Post, primarily covering college basketball, the National Basketball Association, and the New Jersey Nets. He was assigned to write the Yankees’ beat in 1987. He left the position for the Daily News two years later but continued to focus on the Yankees. Kay also worked as a Yankee reporter for the Madison Square Garden Network in 1989.

Kay and his partner Sterling worked as radio announcers for the New York Yankees team on WABC from 1992 to 2001. During the 1992-1993 basketball season, the two hosted “Yankee Talk,” a weekend pre-game radio show. Kay hosted his own show on WABC while also working as a sports reporter for ABC Radio. When WCBS acquired the radio rights to the Yankees broadcasts in 2002, he relocated to the YES Network on television, while his partner remained on the radio. Kay has been a television play-by-play announcer ever since.

He has worked on YES with a variety of partners, sometimes three or four in the same season, the majority of whom were former professional players such as Ken Singleton, David Cone, Al Leiter, Paul O’Neill, Jim Kaat, John Flaherty, Joe Girardi, Lou Piniella, and Bobby Murcer. On September 21, 2008, he joined Jon Miller and Joe Morgan to call the seventh inning of ESPN’s broadcast of the Yankees’ final home game against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

Kay began hosting a drive-time talk show on WEPN, which is now co-hosted by Don La Greca and Peter Rosenberg, as well as CentreStage on YES Network, which is a sports and entertainment interview-format show, in the same year.
