The BEST of NY SPORTS!
I love listening to Sports talk NY for the best insight in everything going on in the New Tork sports world. Fresh, new and exciting information in every podcast!
True NY Sports
I live and breath sports, especially my NY teams. I am the weirdo that loves the Yanks and roots that the Mets do alright. To me in my tri-state area there is only one place that respects and understands the history, and keeps you plugged in with the current state of teams like the Mets and Isles. I love that these guys cover hockey, when places like the FAN and ESPN don’t and won’t because it is about ratings first and last. Here it feels like sports come first. Love of the game comes first. As an Long Islander I love that there is a local perspective out there covering the Islanders.
Good guests. Entertaining sports talk.
There’s more to NY sports talk radio than WFAN & ESPN. Tune in and listen to hosts that are just as entertaining, engaging and informative with guests that will surprise you! Keep up the good work, guys!
