Michael Kay has signed a multiyear agreement with the YES Network, it was announced Monday.

Kay will remain YES' lead New York Yankees play-by-play voice and continue to host "CenterStage."

The comments from the YES press release:

“We are pleased that Michael will continue to play a vital role here at YES," said John J. Filippelli, president of production and programming at the YES Network. "For the past decade on YES, Michael has been the voice of the Yankees, deftly capturing the drama, intensity and passion associated with the greatest franchise in sports. He is one of the pre-eminent play-by-play announcers in baseball and is a first-rate interviewer, as well, as evidenced by his stellar work on 'CenterStage.'"

"I really could not be happier," said Kay. "Continuing to live a childhood dream as the TV voice of the Yankees while working with the best group of people in the business on the country's best regional sports network is as good as it gets. I can't wait to start another season."
