TJ Lang does not hesitate to make his voice heard on social networks.
Now, the former Lions and Green Bay Packers goaltender will speak on match day as a new member of the 97.1 The Ticket’s Lions broadcast squad. He will be a secondary reporter, Audacy announced.
Lang, 33, a Birmingham Brother Rice and Eastern Michigan alumnus, will be the broadcast crew’s secondary reporter, joining Dan Miller and Lomas Brown’s booth.
“I consider it an incredible honor to join such a fantastic group of people at 97.1 The Ticket,” Lang said in a statement released via Audacy this week. “I am delighted to bring a unique perspective to the league each week, while learning as much as possible along the way.”
Lang will also make occasional appearances on 97.1 throughout the week to discuss Lions, especially on the noon and afternoon shows. His contract began on Friday.
Lang played 10 seasons in the NFL, as a two-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion with Green Bay. He retired in 2019, ending his career with two seasons with the Lions.
