Frank Ski announced Thursday that he has decided to leave V-103 after 14 years.
Ski said he wanted to pursue new radio opportunities and expand his brand.
Currently an entrepreneur, professional speaker, host, philanthropist and restaurateur, Frank is thrilled for his next chapter in life and to grow the Frank Ski brand even further.
Ski released this statement on his departure:
“Fourteen years ago, V-103 General Manager Rick Caffey and I set out to create a morning show that was informative, entertaining and inspirational — and year after year, you’ve blessed us with #1 ratings in every age category.
“I’m beyond blessed to get paid to do what I love most, to be on the radio with more than a million listeners every week. I have enjoyed waking you up every morning, deejaying the hottest parties every week and whether it be in the streets, the grocery store, your school, a football game or in places of worship, I have truly enjoyed getting to know you and your family.
“When I moved here in 1998, I was newly married and hadn’t even started my family. Major milestones and defining moments have happened while on the airwaves of V-103. My children were born here in Atlanta, and you shared in that joy — all three times. Tanya & I started the Frank Ski Kids Foundation a decade ago, and because you supported our annual Kids Week, Youth Bowl and Wine Tastings, you made it possible for us to expose hundreds of kids to their future, and ultimately, realize their dreams.
“I’ve grown personally from interviewing those who have made Atlanta the great city it is, and I’ve flourished from genuine relationships with people like Maynard Jackson, Andy Young, Bill Campbell, Bernice King, Shirley Franklin and my good friend, Kasim Reed, whose individual legacies will live forever.
