Best On-Air Smart Ass 

Joel Frank

Joel Frank
WCOO, The Bridge at 105.5

Four years ago, veteran rock deejay Joel Frank was low on the totem pole at the Bridge. These days, he's the station's full-time music director, assistant program director, and midday jock. His efforts to promote visiting bands, local gigs, in-station interviews, and other special events is impressive, but we like his smart-alecky on-air manner best of all. Like his station teammate The Critic, Frank likes to share his opinions with listeners. Sometimes he cracks a comment with such vigor and venom, it earns a few loud guffaws — whether it's something specific or trivial about a tune, an artist, a label, or commentary on the state of rock 'n' roll in general. Knowledgeable and opinionated DJs who actually oversee a playlist, take calls, and speak live on the air are becoming a rare phenomenon in FM radio these days. Frank and his wise-ass demeanor are a valuable asset to the scene.
