With the death of longtime Detroit Sports radio host Jamie Samuelsen, along with the hiring of Rico Beard to join forces with Mike Valenti, 97.1 The Ticket has changed the name of two of their weekday shows.

According to the 97.1 The Ticket website, the Jamie and Stoney Show is now named The Morning Show with Stoney and Heather, while The Valenti Show is now named The Valenti Show with Rico.

The Morning Show with Stoney and Heather can be heard Monday-Friday from 6:00 am – 10:00 am, while the Valenti Show with Rico airs Monday-Friday from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Jamie Samuelsen’s wife Christy announces memorial date for late husband

It has been a rough week for the family, friends, and anyone who listened to Jamie Samuelsen talk about Detroit Sports for the past 25 years as he passed away on Saturday following a long battle with colon cancer.

Since his death, Samuelsen’s co-workers, including his close friend Bob Wojnowski of 97.1 the ticket, have joined thousands of listeners as they have all remembered Jamie for being a great father and husband, and a great person overall.

On Friday, Jamie’s wife Christy McDonald announced on Twitter that a memorial has been set for Tuesday, August 11th at 11 a.m. ET. Christy noted that the event will be small and private but that we can all join them via a live stream.

Christy added that sometime in the future, she will hold a “big public celebration and raise many gimlets in his name.”
