Longtime Motor City Sportscaster Eli Zaret has joined WJR-AM (Detroit) as host of a new daily sports feature, which will be heard on Guy Gordon’s afternoon drive program.  The feature, “After Further Review” will air weekdays at 4:36 p.m.

Zaret is a long-time Detroit broadcaster, starting in 1974 at WABX-FM.  He has covered the Detroit Pistons, has been sports anchor at both WDIV-TV and WJBK-TV and also was a sports anchor at WABC-TV in New York. He’s also served as sports director for WCSX-FM and WRIF-FM.

Guy Gordon said “Eli is one of the most iconic and distinctive voices, both literally and figuratively, and I can’t wait to share his take every afternoon.”

Zaret added, “I’m excited about the opportunity to play a role at one of America’s legendary radio stations that features a cast of Hall of Fame broadcasters. Before starting in television at WDIV in 1980, I loved writing radio sports commentaries. Now, over 40 years later, to be able to do them at WJR alongside my long-time friend and colleague, Guy Gordon, is a very cool thing. I feel like I’m going back to my roots in radio.”
