GREATER MEDIA Sports WMGC (DETROIT SPORTS 105.1)/DETROIT does not have the broadcast rights to the DETROIT LIONS and has been blocked from broadcasting live from the NFL squad's training camp due to crosstown format rival CBS RADIO Sports WXYT-F (97.1 THE TICKET)'s deal with the team. Not taking "no" for an answer, DETROIT SPORTS 105.1 is taking to the sky to broadcast live from a 50-foot scissors lift parked next door to the camp and rising above the playing surface.
The station cut a deal with the practice facility's neighbor, TECH SHOP DETROIT, to allow the lift to park there; TODAY, midday team RYAN ERMANNI and RICO BEARD did their show from the lift, watching the LIONS practice from 50 feet up.
