He has a name that's downright unforgettable and he has a voice that is sure to bring back some good old memories from loyal 10/11 viewers.
His name is Jack Frost and his career has come full circle. He got started working at KOLN-KGIN way back in 1963 and now, almost a half century later, Jack is back at 10/11.
This Alexandria, Louisiana native went on to receive a degree in radio and television from the University of Southwestern in Lafayette, Louisiana. "It was born. I said this is what I wanted to do for better or for worse," says Jack.
He moved north and started at KOLN-KGIN TV in '63, "I was the weekend booth announcer and sign off newscaster."
Jack's deep and calming voice kept 10/11 viewers up to date, "I was the one that would sit there and on the half hour and hour I would say things like you're now watching Channel 10 Lincoln, Channel 11 Grand Island, it's 9:30 and time for 'What's My Line.'"
In 1977, Jack moved back to Louisiana to report and to anchor at a number of television stations. In 2002, Jack retired and again moved north to Nebraska. And now, a decade after he said goodbye to the TV business, he has returned.
This 74 year old is providing a voice for senior citizens...and he's happy to be back where it all began. Jack's 'Seniors Everyday' segments can be seen during the 5pm news on Thursdays and they can also be found on seniorseveryday.com.
