The Detroit Tigers and broadcast partners Bally Sports Detroit and Audacy have finalized their announcer line-up and broadcast booth plans for the upcoming 2024 campaign. 

Bringing in one of the most respected and enjoyable broadcasters in sports as the team’s lead television voice, Jason Benetti joins the Bally Sports Detroit broadcast for his first year of calling Tigers baseball. Benetti, who also works national television broadcasts for FOX (baseball, football, and basketball) and radio for Westwood One (basketball), will work at least 127 Tigers games per season. Known for his elite storytelling, creative thinking, and engaging personality on-air and behind-the-scenes, Benetti has already been accepted by Tigers fans with open arms. 

Joining Benetti in the television booth is a talented group of analysts, all having history wearing the Olde English ‘D’. Craig Monroe returns as the lead analyst for his second season and will call a majority of Tigers broadcasts on Bally Sports Detroit. New to the Tigers TV analyst lineup is Carlos Pena, who played parts of four seasons with the Tigers, and has in booth experience providing game analysis for MLB Network. Also returning are familiar faces and 1984 World Series Champions, Kirk Gibson, and Dan Petry, in addition to all-time franchise saves leader, Todd Jones. 

Returning to the booth for his 25th season as the play-by-play voice of the Detroit Tigers Radio Network is Dan Dickerson. The four-time Michigan Sportscaster of the Year and winner of the Ty Tyson Excellence in Sports Broadcasting Award is beloved by fans and listeners, voicing some of the most iconic calls in franchise history. 

For up to 35 games per season, Dickerson will transition to the television booth, filling in for Benetti when he is away calling national broadcasts. When Dickerson is on the television side, radio voice of the Double A Erie Seawolves, Greg Gania, will be the main replacement announcer.

Taking on analyst duties for about half the radio games in 2024 will be Detroit native and former University of Michigan baseball captain, Bobby Scales – who had a successful first season in the broadcast booth last year. Balancing his work in the television booth to also call games on radio will be Craig Monroe, while Andy Dirks will serve as radio analyst for about half the Tigers home games. 

Broadcast reporter Daniella Bruce will return to the Tigers radio broadcast for the 2024 campaign, also balancing her current responsibilities with Detroit Red Wings broadcasts.

In 2024, the Tigers and Audacy will increase the number of games broadcast in Spanish to 45, up from 22 games a year ago. All home weekend series this season will have a Spanish audio feed, which will be streamed directly to the Audacy App – free to access throughout the state of Michigan. The feed will also be available worldwide on the MLB App (via subscription) and as an SAP option on weekend Bally Sports Detroit telecasts from Comerica Park. 

The Tigers Spanish radio team is led by play-by-play voice Carlos Guillen, who is joined by analyst and 1984 World Series Champion, Barbaro Garbey.
