Philippine-born and America-raised, Frankie Chino is a radio rookie who stumbled into the industry after people kept asking him, "Hey, are you in radio?” because of his deep, bassy voice.
Having heard enough of these questions, he found himself a gig doing commercial voice-overs before moving on to the technical, behind-the-scenes side of the station.
Catch Frankie Chino on Tag Bente - Bente every Saturday and Sunday, 5 PM – 8 PM on TAG Weekend Na.
