In the world of audio, Frank Ski has worn many hats. He's worked as a DJ, journalist, and radio personality and has received high praise from prominent civil rights activists like Reverend Jesse Jackson. He has even been an active supporter of racial equality, although he has drawn some criticism for his comments on Black-owned businesses and controversial sex scandals in Atlanta.
Despite everything he has going on, Frank's success on several fronts has netted him several awards for his radio career and has even earned him the nickname, the "Rainmaker of Urban Radio." He's even known for his philanthropic endeavors in uplifting Black youths to be successful in all sorts of fields.
But although Frank's career is still in full gear, he recently announced his retirement from one of his current positions. Now people are wondering if something happened to Frank Ski. Here's what we know.
What happened to radio host Frank Ski?
On Jan. 10, 2024, Frank announced that he was retiring from his radio host duties at Kiss 104.1 WALR-CMG in Atlanta. He worked for the radio station for three years. He made the announcement on his last day on air with the station.
In his official statement, Frank said, "Though it's going to be difficult parting ways with all my friends at [Cox Media Group], I'm really excited about starting a new chapter in Atlanta. I'm equally excited about expanding my syndication to even greater heights and really super-serving all our affiliated. Radio continues to motivate me every day as I feel a responsibility to help educate and entertain our communities while also giving back and making a difference."
With the announcement, Frank seemingly confirmed that he has other projects and prospects lined up for the future, although he didn't go into detail about what they may involve.
However, Frank did offer a bit of a follow-up on his official TikTok. In his video that was posted a day after his announcement, Frank took the time to address his fans.
"My phone has been ringing off the hook [after the announcement]," Frank claimed in his video.
He said, "[WALR and I] decided to part ways and I do wanna say this. I love love love my Cox Media Group family. The people I work with are stellar."
He continued, "We've accomplished some great things, so I don't take this lightly at all."
Interestingly enough, Frank did offer a little tease as to why he decided to leave.
"I could not get on the air every day and do the Inspirational Vitamin [segment] and tell you to move in your purpose," he explained. "I could not continue to preach that to you in the morning without doing it myself."
That said, Frank did end his video by plugging other upcoming projects such as his new books and albums coming out in 2024. He also revealed that he and his wife Patrice will soon welcome their second child to the family.
