Ryan Wooley started with CBS Radio back in 2007 just three days after graduating from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor’s degree in “Electronic Media and Film”.

In that time he has worked every position imaginable both on-air and behind the scenes and is currently the afternoon sports anchor for both 97.1 “The Ticket” and WWJ Newsradio 950.

He has been awarded sportscast of the year on multiple occasions from both the Michigan Association of Broadcasters as well as the Michigan Associated Press. He was also honored by EMU in 2014 with the “Outstanding Young Alumni Award”.

In addition to his duties with both radio stations, he is the play by play voice of the Westland John Glenn Rocket football team as well as the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team. He also owns his own DJ company, “Mammoth Entertainment”, and handles everything from graduation parties to weddings.

Ryan currently resides in Belleville with his wife Michelle and their daughter Lilly and their son Blake. He is also a big car buff so if you’re ever out and about and see an orange 1976 Pontiac Trans Am — that’s him!
