OAKLAND ADDS TERRY FOSTER TO STAFF
The radio personality and sports columnist will cover men’s basketball for the Golden Grizzlies.
“We are extremely excited about adding Terry’s expertise to our men’s basketball coverage,” said MacDonald. “Terry does a tremendous job on the radio and his writing skills and creativity will bring a different angle for our fans to read about on GoldenGrizzlies.com.”
Foster is co-host of the Valenti and Foster show on 97.1 The Ticket from 2-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. He has been a sports columnist at The Detroit News since 1988 and will seek early retirement on Dec. 27. He also wrote for the Detroit Free Press (1982-88) and began his sports writing career at the Grand Rapids Press (1981).
“I love college athletics and I love good stories,” said Foster. “I am glad Oakland University is giving me a chance to dig deeper into its rich basketball program and write about some of the great athletes and coaches. I have always enjoyed my trips to the O’rena when covering basketball for The Detroit News. Now I really get to see if coach Greg Kampe has mellowed.”
