Best Local Sports Personality: Mike Valenti/Valenti and Foster on 97.1 The Ticket

Valenti, 36, is brash, bold, quick-witted, and bright. It's easy to see why our readers chose him; if you're not following him on Facebook, it's hard to call yourself a true Detroit sports fan. He's of course half of the highly entertaining Valenti and Foster Show (formerly the Sports Inferno). The self-described "Don Draper fanboy" can be heard weekday afternoons from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on WXYT-FM 97.1.
