g) Mike Valenti

mike valenti g) Mike ValentiValenti moved to Michigan at 17 and never looked back. A graduate of Michigan State University, Valenti has been a force in the Detroit market since hitting the airwaves 5 years ago. Opinionated, knowledgeable, and always self deprecating, Valenti is the fans voice.

Other basics, Mike is the resident sports geek, watching more sports than anyone and never apologizing for it. When he’s not spinning the dish, Valenti is an avid cook, reader, and beer aficionado.
Mike currently lives in Royal Oak and is frequently seen downtown not only at sporting events but just hanging out in the D.
