Internet Advisor On WJR Turns 20 – Host Foster Braun Provides The Back Story

Internet Advisor On WJR Turns 20 – Host Foster Braun Provides The Back Story

ROYAL OAK – The Internet Advisor started on WJR 760 AM in 1998 when the Internet was just moving to the fore in people’s minds and not yet becoming a force in business. During February, the IA crew has been celebrating what now has become an incredible resource for not only news and interviews, but also solid technology advice from the experts, that include Producer and Host Foster Braun, plus Gary Baker, Ed Rudel and Cal Carson. Foster joins us on M2 TechCast to discuss the past two decades on the air.

Other regulars on Internet Advisor include Rick Broida, the Gadget Guy, Emily Hay, Social Media and Shane Hamelin, Gaming and Computer repair and Mike Brennan, Editor & Publisher of MITechNews.Com who provides weekly headlines at the top of the first hour of the show.

You’ll recognize Foster’s voice. He does the opening and closing billboards plus the voice-overs for the commercials between segments on M2 TechCast.

Internet Advisor also is a partner in the MITechNews.Com eNewsletters. You can sign up to hear the podcasts for IA, plus M2 TechCast, Diva Tech Talk, SBAM, ITinTheD, Mobile Michigan Musings. IA also is syndicated by Town Square Media, the former Michigan Talk Radio, in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing and Muskegon.

About the Author:

Foster Braun has been co-hosting the Internet Advisor on WJR since early February 1998 except for a short time in early 2000. He has been in the Detroit radio market since 1975 where he has worked talk shows for most of his career and started with WJR in 1996. Since 1998 he has gained enough knowledge of computers to ruin some really fine machines and then fix most of them with the help of the other Internet Advisors. In 2008 he crossed over to the Dark Side and started worked exclusively on a MacBook Pro laptop. His wife Ginny uses a Windows PC laptop running Windows 10; so Foster finds himself doing tech support in both worlds! Foster identifies himself as “the voice of the listener” sometimes fighting through the geek-speak to explanations that even he can understand.
