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.

That’s what I was thinking after seeing “Horrible Bosses 2,” the sequel to the 2011 hit comedy “Horrible Bosses.” While the original film was creative and funny, this second one just tries too hard.
