The world has certainly changed dramatically since I started working at WWJ in 1990. And thanks to the internet, twitter, facebook and other new technology, you have many more options about where you get the news you need every day. But one thing hasn’t changed at Newsradio 950: Our committment to keep you informed with the most reliable up to date information to get you through your day.

And if you think there’s something we could be doing better, we want to hear that, too.

In the end, the Tigers didn’t really have much of a choice. They had to give their pitching ace Justin Verlander the richest contract ever awarded to a pitcher in Major League Baseball History.
