Frank has been at KTVU since the spring of 2016. He is KTVU’s weekend morning anchor, but you will find Frank filling in everywhere as both an anchor and reporter nights and mornings. Frank anchored the morning after the Oakland Ghost Ship warehouse fire and the evening the Camp Fire reached the town of Paradise. He has also covered the Warriors Parade over the years.
Frank’s journalism career began in the mid-80s at KIEM-TV in Eureka as a sports broadcaster. He then moved east where he was the sports director at WMUR in Manchester NH, WLVI in Boston, and WJBK in Detroit before returning to Boston to start his news career in 2001. He was the lead anchor at WLVI and the weekend anchor at WFXT in Boston before he got the call to "come home" to the Bay Area. He anchored mornings at KPIX for 5 years before joining KTVU in 2016. While in Boston, Frank covered a number of New Hampshire primaries, Senator Ted Kennedy’s funeral, the Red Sox breaking "the curse" and Tom Brady winning a number of Super Bowls.
Frank grew up in Walnut Creek and Orinda, graduating from Miramonte High School. He is also a proud UC Berkeley graduate with a degree in communications.
After spending 27 years in New England Frank is delighted to be back in the Bay Area. He loves the outdoors and you will likely see him on many of Northern California’s hiking trails and golf courses. During the summer and winter, you will find him up at Lake Tahoe -- his "Happy-Place." It’s pretty obvious he loves sports too, so at the next Giants, A’s, Cal or 49’er game you just might bump into Frank!
