Eric Thomas

Eric Thomas spent most of his career in Flint working as a rock radio DJ and dodging various gunfire before spending two years in Detroit back in the Free FM Days.

Since then, Eric has spent a lot of time doing the “radio traveling” thing. Spending some time in upstate New York before moving to Washington DC for two years.

A lifelong sports fan, Eric is very happy to be back home in Detroit and on The Ticket.
