Frank KramerMay 1, 2014
DISH NATION’s Frank Kramer has developed into one of radio’s most outspoken, quick-witted and funny talk show hosts currently on the air. He has continued to top the airwaves, dominating the AM/FM and Podcast markets, for nearly two decades. His morning radio show, The Heidi & Frank Show, is co-hosted by Heidi Hamilton, along with Sammi Marino and Erik Scott Smith, and airs on KLOS-FM (95.5) in Los Angeles.
Frank began his radio career at WLUM-FM (102.1) in Milwaukee. What was meant to be a temporary gig turned into a full-time co-host position (Frank quit college six weeks before graduation and never looked back.) He then moved to Denver where he worked at KALC-FM (105.9). He eventually moved to Los Angeles where he worked at KYSR-FM (98.7), KLSX-FM (97.1) and KABC-AM (790) before calling KLOS-FM (95.5) home.
Frank prides himself on being the most honest, belligerent — yet surprisingly charming — guy you will ever meet. That being said, his sometimes ghastly opinions come with honorable intentions. His biting commentary and spicy wit have provided listeners throughout the western United States with a voice that toasts to all. Frank knows the people and the people know Frank.
Originally from Terre Haute, Ind., Frank attended West Vigo High School where he played football and was M.V.P. of his wrestling team. After graduation, he attended Indiana University before transferring to Indiana State University. Fun Fact: Frank’s sister currently hosts a morning radio show in Evansville, Ind.
Of all the places Frank has lived and their various sports team franchises, Frank remains partial to the Denver Broncos.
Frank currently lives in Los Angeles, Calif. with his wife, Carmen, his two insanely talented children and their four dogs (Diesel [Shepard/Mastiff], Rudy [Old English Bulldog], Billy Bob [Imperial Shitzu] and Barney [Tea Cup Yorkie]).
His birth date is Sept. 5.
