Debbie Kenyon, Senior Vice President/Market Manager, CBS RADIO Detroit said, “97.1 The Ticket and all of CBS RADIO are thrilled to continue our relationship with the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings and Olympia Entertainment. We truly believe the Tigers and Red Wings are the best partners in sports. It’s an exciting time for Detroit, largely because of the Ilitch family and the work their organizations are doing to bring new life to downtown.”
Highlights of the agreement include:
- Play-by-play announcer, Dan Dickerson, will continue to host the Detroit Tigers pre- and post-game shows, as well as “Hot Stove,” an off season show airing weekly to keep listeners up to date on the Detroit Tigers.
- Detroit Red Wings announcer Ken Kal will host “Inside Hockeytown” weekly throughout the hockey season.
- WWJ-AM will add three new one hour shows including “Inside The Arena,” to keep fans up-to-date on the development of the new Detroit Red Wings hockey stadium; “Inside The Ballpark,” which will include the latest news and information about the Detroit Tigers upcoming season, and “Inside District Detroit” focusing on all things related to the expansion of “The District.”
