Terry Foster announces retirement from 'Valenti and Foster' on 97.1 The Ticket


Terry Foster, longtime Detroit sports journalist and co-host “Valenti and Foster” show on 97.1 The Ticket, has retired from the station effective immediately, according to the station.

“I am retiring from sports radio but I am not retiring from life,” Foster said. “It is time for me to move on to a more low-key career.

Foster suffered a stroke last year, causing him to miss several months.

“I want to thank Deb Kenyon and James Powers for helping me get through a difficult time of my life and for the support during my 13-year career with 97.1 The Ticket. I also want to thank the most talented man in radio, Mike Valenti, for showing me the ropes, and thank the men behind the glass and my main crew David ‘The Hatchet Man’ Hull and Mike Sullivan.

“We were a great team. I just could no longer keep up the brisk pace of talk radio after my illness.”

The station says Mike Valenti will solo host the show until a new co-host is named.
