After 5 years the Lions are going back to 97.1 The Ticket, making them the only radio station in the country to have all major sports teams.

The main reason they left in the first place was Valenti's candid takes on the organization and the piss poor performance of the team. With them coming back, and him still being the main host, I think you can all but say that Martha Ford didn't like him talking bad about their family. I'm guessing Rod was finally able to go to Shiela and be like, "It makes no business sense to be on WJR and financially speaking, we are better off going back to 97.1, where you're not dealing with static constantly."
