John Sterling is an American sportscaster who is best known for being the radio play-by-play announcer for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball. Many people are curious about where he is now.

During the 1970–71 NBA season, John was the play-by-play announcer for the team that was then called the Baltimore Bullets.

From 1971 to 1978, he called Morgan State University football games as a play-by-play announcer. John moved to New York in 1971 to host a talk show for WMCA.

Where Is John Sterling Today?

For the Subway Series against the New York Mets, John Sterling will continue to go to Boston, Baltimore, and Citi Field.

And since the Yankees have the best record in baseball, John plans to watch all of their playoff games. He has called 162 straight regular-season baseball games, which is almost impossible to break.

And now, Sterling, who is known for calling games for the New York Yankees, is cutting back. In 1989, he went back to New York to call Yankees games on WABC radio.

Since then, the sportscaster has worked for the Yankees, calling games on WFAN radio and its affiliates in the New York Yankees Radio Network. In 2013, the Yankees made a deal with WFAN for ten years, and he was kept on. John has a contract through the 2022 season.

John signed a new contract with WFAN on October 18, 2021, for the year 2022. The deal could mean that John’s schedule will be less busy.

The sportscaster lives in the New Jersey town of Edgewater. He lived in Teaneck, New Jersey, before. On September 1, 2021, John was stuck in his car about a mile from his Edgewater home after broadcasting a Yankees game from Yankee Stadium.

Rickie Ricardo, who lives in Edgewater and calls Yankees games in Spanish, was driving home in his Jeep Cherokee when he saw John.

What Happened To John Sterling?

John Sterling recently said that Chris Oliviero, the market president of Audacy New York, told him that the president wants him to be ready for the big games at the end of the year.

Monday, the New York Post was the first to report that the sportscaster would be cutting back on the number of times he was on TV in 2022.

John was known for never missing a game for 38 years before he joined the Yankees’ broadcast team in 1989. He did play-by-play for the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and the MLB’s Atlanta Braves during that time.

He said that he has talked about taking a break during the season with Mets announcers Howie Rose and Gary Cohen, his old radio partner Michael Kay, and other well-known MLB play-by-play voices.

The sportscaster talked about the team’s trip to Minnesota this week, which starts at 8:40 p.m. New York Time and ends at almost 4 a.m.

Who Is John Sterling’s Replacement?

Justin Shackil and Ricky Ricardo will take over for John Sterling on the Yankees.

Rickie is a Spanish- and English-speaking sportscaster, talk show host, and voice-over artist.

After the Florida Marlins (now the Miami Marlins) won the World Series in 2003, they had a fire sale and sold many of their best players. The team then asked Ricardo to help them get young Latino fans. In 2005, he started doing play-by-play in Spanish as a fill-in.

The talk show host is well-known in football for what he says after field goals are made or missed. S, seor! yelled Ricardo. In 2017, Jake Elliott’s 61-yard game-winning field goal helped the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants.

Ricky yelled “No, seor!” six times when Cody Parkey kicked the famous Double Doink, a blocked field goal that helped the Eagles beat the Chicago Bears and move on in the 2018–19 NFL playoffs.
