WDFN morning show host Matt Shepard is the new voice of the Detroit Tigers. Shepard filled in for Mario Impemba last season after Impemba was suspended for an altercation with then broadcast partner Rod Allen.
Shepard also is the play by play announcer for Michigan Basketball and Eastern Michigan Football and is a studio host for Fox Sports Detroit. “This is a dream come true,” Shepard told WDFN. Kirk Gibson and Jack Morris will be rotating in the booth along side Shepard this coming season.
