Former Red Wing and Detroit fan favorite Darren McCarty is taking his talents to 97.1 The Ticket, joining the station as a regular contributor and co-host for a "variety of shows throughout the week."â†µ
“I’m thrilled to have former Red Wing Darren McCarty join us at 97.1 The Ticket," said program director Jimmy Powers in a release. "Since his playing days, Darren has remained a resident of the city and is extremely passionate about all of the local teams. McCarty has always been a favorite with the fans, so I’m pleased to have him as a regular contributor."â†µ
After finishing up his NHL career, McCarty started working for Versus as a studio analyst for their games, including during the playoffs this past season. He has come a long way from his first appearance on there, so it will be interesting to listen to him on 97.1.
