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!

As another week passes it’s time to bring you my weekly winners for the final week in July.
If I had a dollar for every time I heard that Dwight Howard wants a trade out of Orlando, I could retire at the tender age of 27!
Before the All Star break the Tigers got on a roll by winning five in a row and have since continued that strong play by winning 11 of their last 13 games, pulling them within a half game of Chicago in the Central division.
After Tuesday night’s thumping that the LA Angels put on the Detroit Tigers in near record heat, it got me thinking about the fans in attendance and how bad it had to suck being at that game, and if baseball games in this hot, humid weather is the worst to attend.
No matter what sport we watch, we’re always looking for the next guy to come along that has the “it factor” and we seem to have found that guy right here in Detroit in Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
In honor of the All Star Game this week, I’m going to limit my weekly winners to a team or someone within Major League Baseball.
With the holiday now behind us, it’s time to bring you my latest weekly winners.
It seems that every year when a team wins a championship that some strange superstition or motivational tactic is revealed.
