I no longer have a column, but I like to let you know what is on my mind any way.
And besides I want to stay in writing shape in case I get the call again.
It is not much. It is just a start, but I hope you all enjoy what I have to say.
This is Terry Foster, former columnist at The Detroit News, talk show host at AM 1270 The Sports Station and Fox Sports Net commentator.
I still work at the News as a sports feature writer. However, I get dozens of emails each week asking me what I think about certain issues. I am unable to tell you in the paper. However, I can here. This is my way of letting you know what is on my mind. That is if you care.
I do want to thank people who stepped wrote and called The News to protest the loss of my column. I was stunned by the outrage and outpouring. Even people who hated me called.
I hope you all in Detroit can check out my show that I co-host with Mike Valenti. The Sports Inferno is hot every day and can be heard from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. on AM 1270 The Sports Station.
I am the voice of reason on the show as I try to keep this young and talented buck in check.
Also check me out Monday and Friday night on the Fox Sports Report. I rap about the latest happenings in sports on Monday night (10:30 p.m.) and I have a segment called Friday's With Foster (10:30 p.m.) on Friday.
I promise to post daily and let you know what is going on in the world of sports.
Some of you also know I own a candy store. I have made a decision to get out of the business. I am looking for a buyer.
There is simply not enough time in the day and I need to devote more hours in the day to family. I have a daughter named Celine (5) and a son named Brandon (3) and they miss dad and I miss them. It is more and more difficult to leave them and not return home until they are asleep.
I need to get my priorities straight. But I was not doing radio when I began the business. My day was not as taxing as it is now. It is tough enough making time with them with newspaper, radio and television.
I want to be with my PEOPLE.
That's it for now. I hope you can check me out and please leave messages.
