Bob Frantz is the creator and host of The Bob Frantz Authority, a conservative talk show broadcast on WHK AM-1420 in Cleveland. A 24-year talk radio veteran, Bob has hosted highly-rated shows in some of the biggest markets in the nation. He brought his show to WHK in January of 2015 with a goal of connecting with the silent majority of conservative-minded people in Northeast Ohio, providing them with a voice and a forum that had been sorely lacking.
Shortly after the launch of his local program, Bob’s program caught the ear of the programmers at Salem Media, which sought to give him a bigger platform. He is now a regular guest-host for the nationally syndicated Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager, Sebastian Gorka, and Larry Elder programs on the Salem Radio Network, and is heard on hundreds of stations by tens of thousands of listeners.
Bob is also a two-time Emmy Award winner as host of the true crime-solving television program “Crimestoppers: Case Files.” He also appeared as a guest commentator on multiple Cleveland television news programs, as well as cable news shows on Fox News Channel and MSNBC.
Bob received his B.A. in English and Communications from Heidelberg University in 1990. He and his wife Jean have two children, a daughter who is a sophomore at Hillsdale College, and a son who will be a freshman at Ball State University this fall.
