NEW YORK -- The Mets expect to leave WFAN, their radio partner since 1987, team chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon confirmed during a visit to a midtown FDNY firehouse Tuesday.

"That's fairly accurate," Wilpon said. "There's nothing definitive yet, but it's fairly accurate. Right now we're still negotiating with numerous parties about what we're going to do with our radio rights."

Wilpon said the team should select a new radio partner in about six weeks.

Newsday reported the Yankees are close to moving to WFAN. The report added that ESPN New York 98.7 and Clear Channel Communications, which owns WOR, are among the parties vying for Mets rights.
