    It would be nice if Pamal would clarify what is going to happen with the Mets. A sports writer for the Albany paper wrote that there is likely to be no station carrying the Mets in the Albany-Schdy-Troy area. The Schenectady paper has a preseason game listed on WROW, and the Mets website lists the games to be on WKLI-FM.

    Thanks for the announcement. According to the Mets Radio affiliations on the MLB site that WROW was listed, but it’s now completely out of date. The Mets will now be heard on WKLI-FM’s “Cat Country” at 100.9 instead of “Magic 590/100.5”. “Magic” didn’t do well with the Mets last year, so thanks to “Cat Country”, the Mets will be their new home. Maybe perhaps WBWZ’s “Z93” will still keep the Mets on after iHeart ended their partnership last year for a new affiliation with WCBS-AM since it’s under iHeart Media? Will have to find out. Because the regular season is close for being a month away, while Spring Training is in full swing, and we will not carrying Spring Training/exhibition/pre-season baseball on there, only on WCBS-AM until the rest of the affiliates will put the Mets in regular season. It’s going to take a few weeks to get it started. You’ll have to wait and see.

    I am so happy as I’m sure other Mets fans will be to hear of this switch. Magic’s FM signal is only 250 watts and can be hard to pick up at times. WKLI is 6000 watts!!!!!!!!!!

    Mets not returning to WROW; Albany outlet appears to be unlikely

    According to this no station has agreed to carry them.

    Yes, the latest I heard was WCBS, WKLI, WMML, WCSS, WKAJ.

    If WKLI falls through, then in addition to WCBS,  WKAJ (daytime) and WCSS  should still be do-able in Albany with a little effort.

    (WMML is Glens Falls-Saratoga.)

    Thanks for the article. I was right this time, and Nathan Obral is wrong on the subject. I’ve seen that all of the affiliations is now completely out of date. I’m not sure about WKIP or WBWZ’s “Z93” will continue as a Mets affiliate in Poughkeepsie, because of the iHeart contract ended last year. If they do, maybe WGNY-FM “Fox Oldies” will be carrying the Mets on 98.9 while the Yankees will still be on 1220. It’s just a rumor. Regular season is only a few weeks away while Spring Training will still be carrying on WCBS-AM, and it’s not going to be on all affiliations until the regular season starts on March 28th.

    Reported stations list also includes WKIP.

    That’s not going to happen, because iHeartRadio ended their partnership with the Mets and WOR-AM last year. I’m not sure if either WKIP or WBWZ decided to keep the Mets in the Hudson Valley, or not.

    WOR-AM signed the 5-year deal with iHeartRadio (formerly Clear Channel) where they brought the Mets to 710 AM and also carried on WKIP, which was another iHeart station and it continued right up until last year. The biggest move was the Mets moved to WBWZ’s “Z93” as a classic rock station and also a competitor to WPDH where they brought the games to the FM dial. When the Mets signed a deal with WCBS-AM last year, the partnership with iHeart and the Mets are finally over, and it will not be carrying Mets baseball on WOR-AM anymore. Let’s hope if another station will get the Mets affiliation rights. As I said, WGNY-FM’s “Fox Oldies” will fit with the Mets on 98.9 FM along while the Yankees are still on 1220 AM. Sunrise will be carrying both NY teams for this season. If not, maybe WJGK’s “The Fox” will pick up the Mets as well. We shall see if it’s going to happen. Regular season will begin in a matters of weeks, because Spring Training is still in full swing.

    Only 4 days until the regular season for the Amazing Mets to come on March 28th will be playing against the Nationals, I hope WKIP “Newsradio 1450/1370/98.5” should still be it’s flagship station for the Mets which is still part of iHeart after last year, and it’s going to simulcasting from WCBS-AM via Entercom to put it on an iHeart station.

    As for WROW, not anymore. It will be on WKLI’s “The Cat” at 100.9 will be it’s new home. Wait until Thursday to see what happens whether or not the Mets will carry on WKIP.

    Thanks for the info. Too bad, the Mets will not be carried on WBWZ’s “Z93” and WROW’s “Magic 590/100.5/1410/96.9”. Originally the Mets was supposed to go to WGNY-FM’s “Oldies 98.9” with the Yankees on 1220 AM and 105.3 FM, but not happening. WKIP was supposed to bring the Mets back, but not happening, and finally, WKLI was supposed to bring the Mets to FM after WROW dumped it last year, but not happening. It had a great run last season when WROW in Albany and WBWZ in Poughkeepsie has been a Mets affiliate, but sadly, it’s not coming back this season after iHeart ended its partnership with WOR-AM to go to WCBS-AM, but I guess it has a good signal coming in to Kingston and especially at night. And if you can’t get it, too bad. You can listen to the Mets play-by-play by getting MLB’s Gameday Audio. It’s $19 per regular season, and you should To this link right now!

    The Opener is not on WMML, nor WCSS, nor WKLI, nor WROW. The Mets are apparently off the radio.  Zzzzz. So I’ll be over on the WFAN Yankees network.

    I appreciate the thought, but I do not equate a PC with a radio. I am working on the PC for hours already anyway. I had started the thread to whine about the lack of the Mets (and other sports) on Albany market radio stations. But I’ll just listen to the clear WTMM signal this season usually.  If the Mets can live without us, I can live without them.

    An article to run in Saturdays Albany Times-Union states that WCBS will be the only radio station carrying the Mets anywhere. There will be no network. Apparently Entercom is to blame for this.

    You bet! I hope Nathan Obral, “Limegrass69”, and Freddy Freihofer will be disappointed by this.
