Today we’re discussing the news that Ford will invest $1.45 billion into plants in Wayne and Dearborn to build the new 2020 Bronco and the Ranger small pickup truck. Both are resuscitations of beloved automotive brands that went away for the past couple of decades.
Then, Jer tells us about his visit to the new Rocket Fiber broadcast studio at the Detroit Pistons’ new training facility in
the New Center Techtown. And staying with sportsball, we check in with our sports correspondent, Fletcher Sharpe, to talk about the Pistons’ wild swing from beating the Rockets in Houston over the weekend to losing in humiliating fashion to the lowly Washington Wizards at home.
Speaking of lowly, we also talk about the rumor that Amazon CEO and World’s Richest Man Jeff Bezos wants to buy our beloved Detroit Lions. Well, the Fords are trying to tamp down that rumor by saying they have no plans to sell to anybody, yet they just announced that GM Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia will be back in 2020.
Lastly, we go over some recent Detroit City FC news with Fletcher, including the naming of the inaugural head coach for its new women’s team, Sam Piraine.
