Detroit Free Press:

Another change is coming to sports radio in Detroit: WXYT-AM (1270) is going back to an all-sports format. The sister station to WXYT-FM (97.1, The Ticket) has carried mostly national news and conservative political talk since September 2011. The AM station previously had been the main sports carrier, then simulcasted with FM, then moved away from sports, with the exception of occasions when more than one game was happening at once.
