The Lions officially confirmed this news on Thursday by announcing new television partnerships with both FOX 2 and FOX Sports Detroit. Via the Lions, here are the pertinent details:

Preseason games, including their pre- and postgame shows, will air locally on FOX2 and throughout Michigan via Lions Preseason TV Network affiliates (nationally televised games excluded). [...]
