DETROIT -- The Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association has presented former Tigers broadcaster Ray Lane with the Ernie Harwell Lifetime Contribution Award for more than a half century of work on the air in Michigan.

Lane was Harwell's partner for Tigers radio broadcasts from 1967 through '72, just before Paul Carey took over. He worked with George Kell on Tigers television broadcasts in 1965 and '66, then returned as a fill-in host in the early and mid 2000s.

Lane also served as the voice of the Detroit Lions, Red Wings and Pistons, University of Michigan and Michigan State football, and University of Detroit basketball.
