Coverage begins 20 minutes before game time with two segments. The first is The Jim Leyland Show, a brief pre-recorded one-on-one interview with Tigers manager Jim Leyland by Dan Dickerson. The second is From the Field, a brief interview with another Tigers coach or a player (or occasionally, people who have nothing to do with the game itself, often to promote an event or cause), hosted by Jim Price.
Before merging with WXYT-FM, WXYT/1270 was the sole flagship station from 2001-2007.
From 1964-2000, the Tigers' flagship station was Detroit's WJR. As a maximum power clear-channel station, WJR could be heard carrying Tigers games from hundreds of miles away on warm, clear nights.
Other former Tigers flagships include WWJ, WJBK (currently known as WLQV) and WKMH (currently known as WDTW).
The Tigers' most famous announcer is Ford C. Frick Award winning broadcaster Ernie Harwell, who called Tigers games mostly on the radio from 1960-2002. The press box at Comerica Park is named The Ernie Harwell Media Center in his honor, a statue of him stands near the main gate of the stadium, and his name is on the Tigers Wall of Fame in right field of Comerica Park.
