Frank Stoltze

Frank Stoltze covers politics and criminal justice for KPCC. Like most radio reporters, he ends up covering a whole lot more -- from the economic crisis to fires and floods. He's won a number of awards, including a Golden Mic for a documentary on the recall election that brought California Governor Schwarzenegger to power. The Los Angeles Press Club named him Radio Journalist of the Year in 2005. Frank has worked at a number of radio stations, including as news director for KPFK Pacifica Radio in LA.
