Connect With Frank Marro

Born and raised in Connecticut, Frank has almost four decades of experience in the broadcast news business. He got his start behind the microphone while still in high school and has pretty much "done it all" in the field.

In 1987, Frank landed his own daily radio talk program and a year later was promoted to news director at that same station. He has been in charge of news coverage at several radio stations, and held the position of assignment editor in both radio and TV.

During the 1980 presidential campaign, he covered Ronald Reagan's "Whistle Stop" campaign tour along the Connecticut shoreline, marking his first reporting on national politics, but not the last. Frank would also be on hand for Reagan's visit to the state after being elected to the Oval Office, a trip by then-Vice President George Bush, and another visit after Bush Sr. was elected commander-in-chief. During the 1980's, he was a regular morning drive radio news anchor. On that fateful day in 1986, Frank broke into regular local programming with the bulletin about the shuttle "Challenger" explosion. He would be on the air again to report the horrific details the morning of 9-11, and the murders of 20 grade school children in the nearby town of Newtown, CT in December of 2012.

In an effort to "give back" to those starting out in the news business, Frank taught for several years at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (CSB) and was promoted to Director of their Stratford campus.

Frank says, "Living in the Savannah/Low Country area is a dream come true and I consider it an honor to cover the stories important to fellow citizens." He is married to his soulmate Carol and they share a beautiful blended family of children and grandchildren.
