One of our own, John Mason, made big news today by placing Rush Street Interactive, Inc.’s first ever legal online bet in Michigan live on-air through its online casino and sportsbook site,

Mason is a radio host on KISS-FM (105.9), known as simply Mason, and the public address announcer for the Detroit Pistons.

He placed his $100 bet on Tampa Bay Buccaneers +3.5 (-110) in Sunday’s NFC Championship game showdown.

His reasoning? Because Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is from Michigan. Good call!
