Frank Herzog


Frank Herzog's broadcast career spans forty-two years and includes jobs in virtually every facet of the radio and television industry. Herzog began his career at WTOP Radio just as the station changed its format to “all news” in 1969. By the time 1978 had concluded he had not only served the station as a street reporter and news anchor but worked as its sports director and, as the “voice of the Washington Bullets” broadcasting over 300 NBA games in a three year span that ended with an NBA championship.

In 1979 Frank moved to television at the CBS affiliate in Washington. That’s when he also began work as the “voice of the Washington Redskins” – a 25-year run that included four Super Bowl broadcasts and three NFL Championships. In addition, Frank worked for CBS Television Sports in the mid-80’s, broadcasting college football and basketball across the country.

Herzog moved on to become a sports anchor at the ABC affiliate in Washington, then a news anchor and feature reporter. He later returned to Channel-9 in that city and resumed his work in – at first – sports and, finally, news.

Frank finished his broadcast career in the same station where it began, WTOP Radio – now the #1 rated station in the market and the #1billing station in the entire country. At the same time, he began working as a extra and minor actor in motion pictures filmed in Washington. His portfolio includes “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”, “Step Up”, “Flag of our Fathers” and “Salt”.

Thanks to the influence of some great broadcasters, Frank became an outstanding story-teller in his own right, always demonstrating an uncanny ability to find two stories in one place. His gift is writing and his ability to see aspects of a story that other reporters overlook.

Retired since March of 2010, Frank and his wife reside in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he continues his acting career on a part-time basis.
