In local MLB broadcaster rankings, the Tigers’ broadcast team comes in dead last.


Since Mario Impemba and Rod Allen were unexpectedly fired in 2018, the local broadcast team has often placed in the bottom five of Awful Announcing’s evaluations.

Awful Announcing revived their annual MLB local broadcaster rankings on Wednesday.

The reader-voted list hasn’t been publicized since 2019.

The results are as intriguing as ever, particularly if you’re from Detroit, though they’re probably not shocking. The voting sample size of slightly over 10,000 total votes is a small portion of the list’s peak voting sample size of 64,000 total votes.

In the nationwide fan voting this season, Detroit’s broadcast came in dead bottom.

There was a time when Fox broadcast Tigers games.

This season, the Tigers’ broadcast crew led by Matt Shepard and Craig Monroe came in dead last, even worse than the dreadful Oakland Athletics’ 2023 radio team (whose commentator Glen Kuiper was sacked earlier this season for using a racial slur on the air).

The Tigers have outperformed every team listed above of them in the bottom five of these rankings, despite the fact that these rankings are definitely influenced by the on-field performance generated by a team (the A’s rank 29th, the Nationals rank 28th, the Rockies rank 27th, etc.).
