Where Is John Sterling Today?
John Sterling will continue to go to Boston, Baltimore, and Citi Field for the Subway Series against the New York Mets.
And, with the Yankees owning the most outstanding record in baseball, John intends to attend every playoff telecast. He has a virtually unbreakable 162-game streak spanning five decades of regular-season baseball broadcasting.
And now, the famed New York Yankees play-by-play announcer Sterling is scaling back. He returned to New York in 1989 to announce Yankees games on WABC radio.
Since then, the sportscaster has worked with the Yankees, announcing games on WFAN radio and its affiliates in the New York Yankees Radio Network. The Yankees struck a ten-year deal with WFAN in 2013, and he was retained. John is presently signed until the 2022 season.
John signed a new deal with WFAN for 2022 on October 18, 2021, with the possibility of a reduced schedule.
The sportscaster lives in Edgewater, New Jersey. Previously, he lived in Teaneck, New Jersey. John was stuck in his automobile about a mile from his house in Edgewater on September 1, 2021, after broadcasting a Yankees game remotely from Yankee Stadium.
Rickie Ricardo, a Spanish-language Yankees announcer who lives in Edgewater, was driving his Jeep Cherokee home when he came upon John.
