Detroit Sports 105.1 had hoped to broadcast shows live from Detroit Lions Training Camp.  Citing their rights agreement with the Lions, the “other sports station in town” blocked the move, forcing Detroit Sports 105.1 to think outside the box.

They approached Tech Shop Detroit, whose facility borders the Lions practice field, and obtained permission to broadcast from the Tech Shop parking lot.

The station then rented a 50-foot scissors lift from NES Rentals.  Today, from 10 a.m. – 12 noon, Ryan and Rico will broadcast live for the first time from the scissor lift.

They’ll bring Lions fans info on the Lions practice as it happens, from 50 feet above the field.
