WWJ-TV picks up Lions for pre-season


The Detroit Lions and WWJ-TV Detroit have entered into a three-year agreement for the broadcasting of the Lions’ pre-season games on the CBS O&O station, beginning with the 2008 season.

Along with the game telecasts, the agreement includes the continuation of “The Ford Lions Report,” the half-hour program covering team topics airing weekly on WWJTV during each regular NFL season. In addition, the station and team will be combining their efforts on various marketing and community service activities throughout each year.

In addition, WWJ, as Detroit’s CBS affiliate, will air the Lions’ 69th Thanksgiving Day Classic on Thursday, November 27.
