We’ve always maintained a strong relationship with the team; we look forward to bringing Pistons fans exciting game day broadcasts and exclusive coverage and being a part of the team’s inaugural year at Little Caesars Arena,” added Debbie Kenyon, Senior Vice President/Market Manager, CBS RADIO Detroit.

Under the agreement, 97.1 FM The Ticket will broadcast regular-season, preseason and postseason games.
