The New York Yankees Radio Network will not include WPDA (106.1-FM) this season, said a spokeswoman from the Cumulus station. That’s a bit unfortunate for fans deep in the heart of mountainous Sullivan County, where it becomes difficult to hear flagship radio station WCBS (880-AM). With the tower located in Jeffersonville, WPDA’s 1,600-watt signal covered all of Sullivan County with reach into northern Orange, western Ulster and northeast Pennsylvania.
The Yankees will still have FM play on Hudson Valley stations WKXP (94.3-FM) in Kingston and WZAD (97.3-FM) in Wurtsboro.
WPDA simulcasts the rock format of WPDH (101.5-FM), but broke away for Yankees radiocasts.
Yankees games can also be heard around the state on Rochester’s WHAM (1180-AM) and WHTK (1280-AM), Albany’s WTMM (104.5-FM), Binghamton’s WENE (1430-AM) and Syracuse’s WSYR (570-AM, 106.9-FM), plus Connecticut’s WICC (600-AM) in Bridgeport, WLAD (800-AM) in Danbury and New Haven’s WAVZ (1300-AM).
