Newsday’s Wallace Matthews will be the Yankees beat writer for ESPN New York, according to a press release from ESPN.
Matthews has covered New York sports since 1983 as a reporter, columnist, radio host and TV commentator. He joins ESPNNewYork.com to cover the Yankees, which he's done since the days of Stump Merrill, having worked for Newsday, the New York Post, the New York Sun and ESPN Radio 1050 AM.
I’m not too familiar with his work because I don’t have access to Newsday’s paid content.
ESPN New York launches at midnight tonight.
