Current

The current flagship radio stations for the Detroit Tigers are WXYT, at 1270 AM, and WXYT-FM, at 97.1, both sports stations.[1] Dan Dickerson (play-by-play) and former Tiger catcher Jim Price (analyst) are the radio announcers; both double as pre-game and post-game show hosts.[2] The games are simulcast on both stations unless there is a conflict with Detroit Red Wings hockey or Detroit Lions football.

Former flagships

WJR was the Tigers' flagship station from 1964-2000. Other former Tigers flagships include WWJ, WJBK (currently known as WLQV) and WKMH (currently known as WDTW).
