He earned a BA in Social and Behavioral Sciences from Johns Hopkins, and thereafter embarked on a 23-year career in television, first with WBAL in Baltimore, and then with the Gannett News Service. While at Gannett, at the dawn of satellite news-gathering, Frank covered hurricanes, the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, the 1988 Republican National Convention, the San Francisco earthquake, three Super Bowls, and numerous space shuttle launches.

He joined WUSA in 1990, and became co-anchor of weekend newscasts.

About the Resident Journalist program: The Resident Journalist program is sponsored by the family of Robert L. Weinberg, a member of the Class of 1940 and devotee of Baltimore journalist H.L. Mencken. Each year, resident journalists give a presentation to Upper School students and meet with classes throughout a day in the spring.
