Impemba, Allen Won’t Return To Tigers Broadcast Booth Next Season

Long-time Detroit Tigers television broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen will not return to the booth next season. The decision stems from a physical altercation between the two that occurred on September 4th.

Both were suspended for the remainder of this season with Matt Shepard and Kirk Gibson serving as primary replacements. Impemba had been the Tigers’ play-by-play man on Fox Sports Detroit since 2002 before being partnered with Allen a year later.
