Jack Curry, who covered the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball at The New York Times for nearly 20 years as its Yankees beat writer and as a national baseball writer, joined the YES Network in February of 2010 as Yankees analyst, reporter and program contributor, and as a columnist on the Emmy-Award winning YESNetwork.com. He has received five New York Emmy Awards for his work as part of YES' Yankees broadcast team and has received a total of 30 New York Emmy Award nominations.
Curry has co-written two New York Times best-selling books: in 2019, he collaborated on a book with YES colleague David Cone called Full Count: The Education Of A Pitcher, and in 2000 he co-wrote a book with Derek Jeter entitled The Life You Imagine: Life Lessons for Achieving Your Dreams. In addition, his collaboration with YES colleague Paul O'Neill called A Swing And A Hit is scheduled to be released in May of 2022.
The YES Network, the most-watched regional sports network in the country 17 of the last 19 years, is the exclusive regional television home of the 27-time World Champion New York Yankees, the Brooklyn Nets, MLS' New York City FC and WNBA's New York Liberty. The network has won 134 New York Emmy Awards since its 2002 launch.
Curry has also hosted YES' Yankees Access specials, which give viewers exclusive, off-the-field, behind-the-scenes looks at some of the most popular Yankees players. He has traveled to the Dominican Republic and Taiwan to report on Yankee feature stories, international travel atypical of regional sports networks.
Since November 2005, Curry has been a regular contributor to YES' Yankees Hot Stove show. His television experience actually extends back to 1991, when he began contributing to Madison Square Garden Network's Yankees pre-game show and weekly baseball magazine show.
While at YES, Curry also hosted JCTV: Jack Curry TV, the innovative YESNetwork.com original series which featured interviews with some of the biggest names in sports, entertainment and the media.
Curry joined The New York Times in 1987 and became the Yankees beat writer in 1991. He was a national baseball writer at the newspaper from 1998 until December of 2009. While at The Times, Curry authored more than 4,500 articles, covering 18 World Series, 11 All-Star Games, 10 MLB Winter Meetings and two World Baseball Classics. The New Jersey native also was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Reporting at The Times in 1999 for co-writing a series on the demise of New York high school sports, and won multiple Publisher Awards at The Times, monthly awards that recognize the best journalism at the paper. Curry has also been the chairman of the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
In January 2013, Curry received the Broadcast Achievement Award from the New Jersey Sports Writers Association. Also that year, he was named "Top Sports Analyst" by the New Jersey-based 201 Magazine.
