Franzman Island Mornings 5:30-10am

Franzman has been waking up the Tri-Cities with the ONE MAN PARTY IN THE MORNING since 2013!

Franz and his wife live in Grand Island where he says he is blessed to be. He formally spent time in the newspaper business and was in a band but broadcasting allows him to do the things he enjoys most… disseminating information, playing great music and meeting and interviewing guests.
