Frank 'da Count' B.

Frank Bonacquisti started out in Portland radio at 16 years of age. He first went on the radio in Bend in 1977 as "The Count". He has been the morning host for the KBND Morning News from 1990 - 1995 then again 1997 - 2005 and now, back again, for good this time, since 2010. In between he has been on the radio and worked as a professional voice talent, among other things, from Portland to Palm Springs and on the island of Maui. Frank sees himself as the Master of Ceremonies for the Morning News, a fast-paced 4-hour block of full service news and information. Like he'll tell you he's not a newsman, he just plays one on the radio. He's actually a News Personality and has had great success with endorsements for many clients. Frank and "the Countess" married here in Bend in 1978 and they enjoy taking their 3 grandsons out to enjoy the beauty of Central Oregon.
