Late 97.1 The Ticket host Jamie Samuelsen nominated for posthumous award

The metro-Detroit community lost a beloved figure earlier this year, as 97.1 The Ticket on-air host Jamie Samuelsen succumbed to colon cancer at only 48 years of age.

Today, the late broadcaster was nominated for a special posthumous award.

He’s formally been announced as a finalist for Michigan Sportscaster of the year, along with WXYZ’s Brad Galli.

Samuelsen had worked in Detroit sports radio since 1990, and also wrote for The Detroit Free Press. In a special tribute, 97.1 The Ticket renamed their studio in Samuelsen’s honor.
