It’s not radio. It’s not television. The Woodward Sports Network is a combination of both on the Internet.
If you are looking for more Detroit driven sports content give the men and women of the Woodward Sports Network a shot. They are sports fans who love their teams. Unlike me, they use the term “we” when they talk about the Lions, Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings” I don’t, but that’s OK.
The network is led by people named Stick, Home Team, Full Court, Pilar, Mr. Peabody, Maz, Fish, D Mac, Eazy E, The Atomic Dog, Sean Baligian and J Bell. Two — Darren Mc Carty and Joique Bell — are former professional Detroit athletes. They even let me hang around for a couple hours a week.
I appear on the Morning Woodward Show on Thursday from 9-9:45 am. And I will be on the Baligian and Bell Show Monday’s from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m while Joique is away trying to solve the world’s problems.
There has been a transformation with McCarty. When he did radio before he sounded like gruff Darren McCarty. Now he sounds more like Canadian Darren McCarty. It’s hard to explain. You will have to listen to The Hook to find out.
They love to mess with Tom Mazawey. Every time Maz mentions New York he is shot with 100 volts of electricity. They do the same to me when I mention the Bad Boys 30 for 30.
There are three live shows Monday through Friday. Shows are also archived and can be listened to at your leisure. If you are up at 4 in the morning you can listen to any show you desire.
They even have an app now. I go to either You Tube, Facebook or Twitter, search for the show name and watch shows live.
The network will broadcast all of its shows Opening Day from The Brass Rail Pizza Bar on Adams two blocks from Comerica Park beginning at 8 in the morning.
Drop by and meet the network stars. They don’t bite. Except D Mac when he’s really hungry.
Here is the Monday through Friday lineup:
The Morning Woodward Show: 8-10 a.m.
Baligian and Bell: 11-1 p.m.
The Hook: 3-5 p.m.Find Terry Foster Podcast here:
