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.

“It’s a great day in sports,” said my childhood idol, “it’s a great day for society in terms of leadership.”
The Tigers are 5-2, but it sure doesn’t feel like it.
Mr. Utash is the victim, but society in general is the problem, and the men who beat him are a symptom of a disease we all share a part in.
Why is Detroit only represented by the people who commit acts of violence? Why do we define the city as the people who were beating the victim, and not by the nurse who stopped them?
What a difference an afternoon makes! In case you haven’t heard, Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers reportedly agreed to terms a multi-year extension.
Not everyone is excited for opening day.
Many fans are still sore from Max Scherzer’s rejection of the Tiger’s multi-year offer earlier in the week.
Many fans on social media have said, correctly, that Max is after Clayton Kershaw money. They’re right; he is. He’s probably going to get it, too.
The first of two NFL ownership meetings will take place this weekend, when some of the wealthiest people can gather and plot the course of the world for the next year.
