Terri Lee Sylvester

terrilee3 Terri Lee SylvesterI am a graduate of Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications/Electronic Journalism. Although I have been working in the broadcast industry for a number of years, I returned to school recently to sharpen my skills and keep up-to-date on new methods and technology. Following a nine-month program at the Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts, I am proud to say that I graduated with honors with a concentration in Radio Broadcasting.
For as long as I can remember, my goal was to become a Broadcast Journalist, so working at WWJ Newsradio 950 is a dream come true for me. And, although my primary responsibility is working behind-the-scenes as a producer/editor, don’t be surprised if you hear me on the air, reporting from time-to-time.

Throughout the course of my career, I have worked for WQBH in Detroit and at radio and/or television stations in Lansing and Flint. I’ve also worked for Detroit’s Channel 20 and for the CBS television affiliate in Augusta, Georgia. While working to get my career underway, I won the city of Southfield’s first public access grant for a cable television news program that I wrote, produced and anchored.

In my spare time, I like to read, write, travel and spend time with family and friends.
