Local 4 sources are reporting both Mario Impemba and Rod Allen will not return to call games for Fox Sports Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press reports that a new broadcast team will call Tigers games next season as the duo will not be welcomed back.

Both were suspended for the last month of the season after a reported physical altercation took place in the broadcast booth when the Tigers were in Chicago on September 4th.

The two worked together for almost 17 years in the Tigers broadcast booth and had opposing personalities and broadcast styles, according to The Athletic's Katie Strang.

Neither has spoke publicly about the incident or to the media.

The pair had been together in Detroit's broadcast booth for 17 years. Allen split color-commentating duties with Kirk Gibson and Craig Monroe the past two seasons.
