Former Detroit Lions offensive tackle Lomas Brown is joining the Detroit Lions game day broadcast team on WJR. Brown spent 18 seasons in the NFL, 11 of them with the Lions. He was the 6th player selected in the 1985 draft, a seven time Pro-Bowler, and won a Super Bowl championship in 2002 while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Upon retiring from the NFL, Brown moved into the sports media industry. He previously served as an analyst on the NFL Network and ESPN. He takes over for Jim Brandstatter who spent 31 seasons on Lions radio.
“Jim Brandstatter did an excellent job for the past two years on WJR and for many years prior, and we’re proud of the work we did together,” said VP/GM Tom O’Brien. “The addition of Lomas Brown, a former All Pro Lion, will bring a unique perspective to the game day broadcast.”
