The Fox Sports Detroit broadcast booth will reportedly be a little less crowded in 2017. According to Tony Paul of the Detroit News, Jack Morris and Craig Monroe will not return as color analysts during the upcoming season. Fan favorites Kirk Gibson and Rod Allen will split analysis duties alongside play-by-play man Mario Impemba.

Whether Monroe will serve as a “sideline” reporter again is unclear — to no fault of Tony’s, it’s tough to deliver a comprehensive report in 140 characters — but odds are he will still spend time in the Call Sam Studios. Morris’ studio duties were limited, but he also spent time working with the Minnesota Twins’ broadcast team in 2016.
