The Detroit Tigers Radio Network is a network of radio stations that covers much of Michigan, Northwest Ohio and Northern Indiana along with a few parts of Northern Wisconsin, airing Major League Baseball's Detroit Tigers games and related programming.[1] The network airs all 162 regular season games and all postseason games. Dan Dickerson does play-by-play on the broadcasts and former Tiger catcher Jim Price does color commentary.[2] Jeff Riger is the studio host. The flagship stations are WXYT (1270 AM) and WXYT-FM (97.1 FM) in Detroit.

Wraparound coverage


Coverage begins 20 minutes before game time with two segments. The first is Ron Gardenhire Show, a brief pre-recorded one-on-one interview with Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire by Dan Dickerson at home games and Jim Price on road games. The second is From the Field, a brief interview with another Tigers coach or a player (or occasionally, people who have nothing to do with the game itself, often to promote a fundraising event or charitable cause), hosted by Jim Price.


Post-game coverage includes a game wrap up, either by Price or WXYT's Jeff Riger, scores from around the major leagues by Dickerson, and a preview of the next game.


Games are syndicated by CBS Radio. The current affiliate stations and their cities of license are:[1]

History and former broadcasters

  • Before merging with WXYT-FM, WXYT/1270 was the sole flagship station from 2001–2007.
  • From 1964-2000, the Tigers' flagship station was Detroit's WJR. As a maximum power clear-channel station, WJR could be heard carrying Tigers games from hundreds of miles away on warm, clear nights.
  • Other former Tigers flagships include WWJ, WJBK (currently known as WLQV) and WKMH (currently known as WDTW but off the air).
  • The Tigers' most famous announcer is Ford C. Frick Award winning broadcaster Ernie Harwell, who called Tigers games mostly on the radio from 1960–2002. The press box at Comerica Park is named The Ernie Harwell Media Center in his honor, a statue of him stands near the main gate of the stadium, and his name is on the Tigers Wall of Fame in right field of Comerica Park.
