Bill Ferris to Join the TigsTown Staff

Bill Ferris, one of the foremost authorities on Tigers' commentary on the ‘net and the founder of the famed Detroit Tigers Weblog, is set to join the TigsTown staff as the site's new senior associate editor for major league baseball.

Bill Ferris has established himself over the past ten years as one of the foremost commentators when it comes to Detroit Tigers baseball. From his home at DetroitTigersWeblog.com, which he founded in 2001, Ferris covered the team's fall in 2003, the team's rise in 2006, game 163 in 2009, and everything in-between.

A self-described "fanalyst", Ferris has been a regular contributor on many Detroit-area radio stations, including WDFN 1130 The Fan and 101.9 WDET. DetroitTigersWeblog.com has also been cited in numerous media outlets, including SI.com and ESPN.com.

Paul Wezner, executive editor of TigsTown.com and CEO of Motown Sports Media, LLC, states, "Adding Bill to the team is a huge win for TigsTown and Motown Sports Media, and Bill's contributions will provide great value to the loyal TigsTown readers."

Wezner continues, "Adding ‘billfer' to the team will provide TigsTown with a great big league commentator as we move TigsTown toward a full-service provider of all Tigers' news and information needs."

In his new role as senior associate editor for major league baseball, Ferris will focus his commentary on the Detroit Tigers performance, player moves, and all other relevant topics to the Tigers organization.
