LIONS LATEST TEAM TO JUMP FROM TO INFINITY
Published January 3, 1996
The Lions signed a new five-year deal with WXYT-AM for the rights to broadcast their games beginning next year. WXYT-AM is owned by New York-based Infinity Broadcasting, which owns stations that hold the rights to the Falcons, Redskins, Patriots, Cowboys, Eagles, Bucs and Jets. The games will also be heard on WOMC-FM. Lions games had been broadcast on WWJ-AM for the past seven years, but Lions Vice Chair William Clay Ford Jr. said WXYT made an offer that "could not be ignored." Terms were not disclosed, but Infinity reportedly offered the team $4M a year, while WWJ is believed to have paid around $1.55M for this season's radio rights (DETROIT NEWS, 12/25).
