The Mets are moving a few notches down the radio dial. They reportedly reached an agreement with WOR (710 AM in New York City) to carry their games beginning in 2014.
The 50,000-watt station is nearing an agreement with the Mets on a multi-year deal, according to industry sources.
Howie Rose is expected to remain the primary voice of the Mets.
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment also operates five FM stations in the market: Z100, KTU, Power 105.1, Lite FM 106.7 and Q104.
WFAN decided to part ways with the Mets following the 2013 season, citing disappointing advertising revenues. The all-sports station will now become the flagship station of the Yankees.
