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.

While the film doesn’t break any new ground, with Jennifer Lopez and the very chiseled Ryan Guzman in the two leading roles, it’s a guilty pleasure.

Selma Carries A Message That Is Ripe For The Ages

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.

Star-Studded “Top Five” Is A Waste of Top Talent [REVIEW]

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.

Horrible Bosses 2: Why Didn’t They Leave Well Enough Alone?

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.
