Report: Detroit Lions will be switching radio stations in 2016

According to multiple reports, the flagship station for the Detroit Lions will be switching to WJR 760 beginning with the 2016 season. This announcement is expected to come on Friday, says Tony Paul of the Detroit News.

The Lions will be making the switch after 18 seasons with WXYT, which was first 1270 AM and is now 97.1 FM.

This will make the second Detroit team to leave 97.1 in the past two seasons, with the Detroit Pistons heading to 105.1 last season.

Previously WXYT (97.1) held the broadcasting rights to all four major Detroit teams but now they are down to just the Tigers. 97.1 is the top rated sports radio station in Michigan and of the four major sports teams in Detroit, the Tigers hold the most value due to the amount of games they play.

Tony Paul also noted that according to his source play-by-play man Dan Miller and analyst Jim Brandstatter will remain in the booth to call the games.
