“I enjoy broadcasting, entertaining and occasionally whining, and I am excited about the chance to do it again on a regular basis. In 20-plus years as a Detroit News columnist, and 15 years on Detroit radio, I have deep connections and passions about the teams and the fans,” said Wojnowski. “The Ticket is the biggest sports boombox imaginable, and Jamie and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to join the fun.”
