Posts Tagged ‘Yankees Broadcaster’

From the NY Daily News:

Listeners of Michael Kay’s ESPN afternoon-drive radio show may not know it, but the beautiful girlfriend he sometimes talks about is News 12 Long Island anchor Jodi Applegate. The couple have been dating for a little over a year now, and Applegate tells Gatecrasher that they met after Kay, the TV voice of the Yankees on the Yes Network, spied her from afar at the 2009 Emmy Awards.

The next day, he waxed romantic about the former “Good Day New York” anchor at length on his ESPN show, telling the audience that Applegate was his idea of the “perfect woman” – “so perfect” that he couldn’t bring himself to talk to her.

When Applegate heard about Kay’s on-air mash-o-logue, she says her response was, “Michael who?” But she ended up calling Kay’s producer and, without letting the sportscaster in on the goof, phoned in to his show the next day as “Jodi from Long Island.” Their call went on for 12 minutes, and when Kay realized he was talking to his idea of the perfect woman, “he began asking me out on the air,” Applegate says.

The News 12 anchor turned him down because she was seeing someone at the time, but when she found herself unattached a few months later, she e-mailed Kay. After a first date at Pomodoro restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen, “we’ve been together ever since,” she says. They even attended this year’s Emmys together.

Way to go Michael! I’m sure┬áPaul O’Neill will continue to bug him about getting married….
