Terri Lee Sylvester
I 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.

“Black or White” is a movie with a message. It’s based on actual events that occurred in the life of the film’s writer and director, Mike Binder, a native of Detroit.
It’s highly likely that anyone suffering from chronic pain will be able to relate to the role Jennifer Aniston plays in “Cake.” But, her performance is lacking the necessary conviction for someone in so much pain.

Kevin Hart is one busy guy.
Selma follows three attempts by civil rights leaders led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. back in 1965 to stage a peaceful march from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama. Even though the events happened nearly 50 years ago, the message is all too timely.
Detroiter Marva Blocker wrote “Hey Kids, Can Animals Really Talk” after procrastinating for years. She finally buckled down after what could be called some divine intervention.
“Foxcatcher” And “The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies” Among Films Crowding Weekend Box Office
It’s a very crowded weekend at the box office with Annie, Foxcatcher, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and Wild opening today.
The producers describe “Top Five” as “an original and radically new kind of American movie.” That, it may be. But, it’s also not very funny.

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.
“The Theory of Everything” is Stephen Hawking’s inspiring life story. It shows how he and Wilde met and fell and love, covers their wedding and the struggles they endured as a couple, and later, a family with three kids.
The Farrelly brothers – and, of course, their two stars – Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels – have done it again. “Dumb and Dumber To” is smart, clever and laugh-out loud funny!
What’s it like to live life in the fast lane? To be a hot recording artist, performing sold-out concerts in front of thousands of fans? “Beyond the Lights” offers a peek into such a fast-paced lifestyle.
“Beside Still Waters” is the directorial debut from actor Chris Lowell (“Private Practice,” “Veronica Mars”).
While this movie had so much potential, there’s just too much violence just for the sake of violence and the story line could have — and should have — been developed more.
“The Best of Me” is by far one of the best movies to hit the big screen in a long time – make that – one of the best movies ever. Yes, it’s that good.
In “The Judge,” Robert Downey, Jr. stars as slick Windy City lawyer Hank Palmer. He reconnects with his small-town family after a 20-year absence.
Denzel Washington is back on the big screen, starring in this action-packed thriller directed by Antoine Fuqua, who also directed Washington in the hit film, “Training Day,” for which Washington won an Academy Award.
“The Guest” starts out as an exciting, edge-of-your-seat thriller and then suddenly switches gears and goes for laughs.
Aniston stars as kidnapped wife Mickey Dawson in “Life of Crime,” based on Elmore Leonard’s novel, “The Switch.”
Is it possible that this, the third film in the hugely popular “Expendables” franchise, can be the best Expendables of all so far? Well, since I liked the first two a lot, that’s hard to say, but this one also has all the elements of a big hit.
There’s a battle scene that unfolds on a snowy road that’s especially amazing!
When Boseman playing James Brown disappears and a more relaxed and comfortable Boseman as James Brown emerges – the film really takes flight and Boseman’s performance is electric.
What if humans used 100% of their brain capacity? That idea is explored in “Lucy,” starring Scarlett Johansson.
He’s got some of the best-looking lips in the business! But, are they worth paying to see in his newest movie?
At the conclusion of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” I could finally breathe easy. That’s because for the entire film, I was filled with suspense – practically sitting on the edge of my seat – in anticipation of what was to come next.

As the co-writer, producer and star of Tammy, McCarthy took on a lot with this project — and for the first 30 minutes or so — it seems like she may have taken on a little too much.
