He hosted 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 in Bend in 1978 and enjoy taking their 3 grandsons to enjoy the beauty of Central Oregon.
