Todd Franko

Newsapalooza Director

Todd has been in media for 30-plus years. He’s been part of a community since birth. Bringing them together in an event like Newsapalooza is an absolute smirk fest for him. He aspires to live in a community that is informed and engaged and has local awareness to improve the bad and celebrate the good.  Todd also enjoys a mediocre round of golf, a somewhat cheap cigar and two fingers of iced Southern Comfort not far away, with Springsteen, the Avetts or Red Wanting Blue (not) quietly playing out of a speaker.
