Baseball playoffs radio updates

ESPN 1050 in New York (WEPN-AM) will carry Thursday’s wild-card playoffs (if necessary), both American League Division Series matchups on Friday and all four ALDS and National League Division Series games on Saturday. The two NLDS games on Sunday will be shifted to Bloomberg Radio (WBBR 1130-AM) due to a conflict with the Jets’ Sunday night game with Baltimore.
ESPN affiliates WINE (940-AM) and WPUT (1510-AM) will likely carry most of the games but program director Tim Sheehan said Wednesday he is still awaiting word from ESPN Radio.
Northeast Pennsylvania ESPN affiliates WEJL (630-AM) and WBAX (1240-AM) will carry all Philadelphia playoff games as part of the Phillies Radio Network. The station will carry the other three series from ESPN Radio, but none that conflict with the Phillies, Notre Dame football, its Friday/Saturday high school game of the week and the NFL Sunday and Monday night games.
I have no official word from Chicago’s WMVP (1000-AM) and Cincinnati’s WCKL (1530-AM) but those strong-power ESPN Radio affiliates will surely carry most if not all MLB playoff games.
The Yankees, of course, can be heard on flagship WCBS (880-AM), plus affiliates WKXP 94.3-FM, WZAD 97.3-FM and WPDA 106.1-FM in the Hudson Valley and Albany’s WTMM (104.5-FM).
The Phillies can be heard on flagship WPHT (1210-AM). The Red Sox can be heard on strong affiliate WTIC (1080-AM) in Hartford. The Cardinals could be heard on flagship KMOX (1120-AM).
