Through the rest of this week, YES will post new episodes daily of all three shows on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and YESNetwork.com.

These follow on the heels of YES' extensive existing social media efforts since sports were placed on hiatus:

On the television side, YES has premiered three "Classics":

  • • Last Thursday: Knicks vs. Nets, Oct. 25, 2019 (Kyrie Irving scores 26 points in his second game as a Net)
  • • Last Friday: Bulls vs. Nets, Jan. 31, 2020 (Kyrie Irving scores 54 points)
  • • Last Saturday: NYCFC vs. DC United, Sept. 1, 2016 (Frank Lampard scores game-winner in stoppage time after being honored pregame for recording 300 career goals

Finally, after contacting YES in hopes of lending a voice amidst the coronavirus crisis, Mariano Rivera appeared last Friday on ESPN Radio New York's The Michael Kay Show, simulcast live on YES, and talked about the coronavirus crisis, the Houston Astros sign-stealing saga and more.
