This native New Yorker, nephew of famous actor Danny Aiello, started reporting while still a teenager, at the Bronx High School of Science. Michael continued his education at Fordham University from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. Shortly after graduation, in 1982 Michael’s career officially began when he started working at SportsPhone and also as a public announcer for the New York Pro Summer Basketball League. These accomplishments provided the basis for his net worth.

Later that year, Michael Kay got the job of general assignment writer for the New York Post, covering college basketball. His television debut came soon after, when he started covering the New Jersey Nets. In 1987, Michael Kay switched to baseball and started serving as the New York Yankees broadcaster which he remains to this day. This wasn’t only Michael’s biggest professional task so far, but also the main source of his net worth.

Between 1989 and 1992, Michael Kay worked at the New York Daily News, before moving to WABC Radio.

Michael stayed on the radio for 10 years, and in 2002 he moved to debuting on the YES Network, where he became the Yankee’s lead television play-by-play announcer. These engagements have certainly increased Michael’s overall net worth.

In 2002, Michael Kay started hosting his own radio show, a 4-hour sports talk show – The Michael Kay Show – airing on the WEPN-FM in New York City. Apart from this, he is currently hosting Centerstage on the Yes Network.
