Tony Ortiz has been providing Lions sideline reports since 2001. He produced Lions games broadcasts from 1991-1994.
WXYT-AM was the sole flagship station of the network from 1998-2004.
In 2005, the Lions' flagship became an FM station for the first time in their history, when a long term agreement was signed with WKRK.
Detroit's WWJ was the team's flagship station prior to 1998, and continued to simulcast WXYT-AM's broadcasts prior to the team's move to WKRK. Prior to 1989, WJR had served as the Lions' radio flagship.
Former names of the network include "The WXYT 1270 Detroit Lions Radio Network", "The WKRK Detroit Lions Radio Network", and "The Live 97.1 Detroit Lions Radio Network" (WKRK-FM is WXYT-FM's former callsign, and Live 97.1 is one of its former brandings).
