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

The two were suspended on September 7, three days after the alleged incident occurred in the broadcast booth before a game in Chicago against the White Sox.

No word on who may replace the pair in the broadcast booth next season.

Impemba and Allen did not appear on air during any Tigers telecasts for the remainder of the season.

The late-season falling out was reportedly the result of a disagreement over a chair in the broadcast booth. Neither have spoken publicly about the incident.

Allen's agent denied that his client choked Impemba, according to Lynn Henning and Tony Paul of the Detroit News. In their absence last season, Matt Shepard and Kirk Gibson called the majority of games, USA Today reported.
