Greektown Casino-Hotel will host the Detroit Lions’ weekly Thursday night radio show from Shotz Sports Bar on 97.1 FM WXYT “The Ticket.” The one-hour program, “Shotz Sports Bar Lions Rap,” will air every Thursday at 7 p.m. during the eighteen-week regular season and will be hosted by local Detroit sports personality Tony Ortiz along with Lions’ players Larry Foote, Ernie Simms and Kevin Smith. Each show will focus on a discussion of the next upcoming game and feature player comments, listener call-ins, and an interview with Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz. Fans are invited to come down to Shotz Sports Bar, located on Monroe Street and just off Greektown Casino’s hotel lobby each Thursday to see the show live.
“We are happy to be able to bring this excitement to our new sports bar, Shotz, at Greektown Casino-Hotel and support the Lions,” said Amanda Totaro, VP Marketing at Greektown. “It’s important for everyone in the community to support our local sports teams and in turn, the local economy.
