Mets stick with WPIX for two more years

The New York Mets have forged an extension with WPIX-11 to carry 25 regular-season games and four spring training games per season in 2016 and 2017.
The Mets have made WPIX their over-the-air stationĀ  since the start of the 1999 season. For their first 37 seasons (1962-98) the Mets appeared on WOR (and later WWOR) channel 9.
As has been the case since its inception in 2006, SportsNet New York (SNY) will continue to produce the telecasts for WPIX.
