News 4 Today anchor Bill Frankmore came to KRNV in May of 1998 from La Crosse, Wisconsin where he was a general assignment reporter and weekend anchor. When Bill came to News 4 he also reported and anchored the weekend news. But in April of 2000, he made the move to the morning show.
Bill says he is glad he made the move to morning anchor because he "can have a little more fun with the show." He says that other shows he has anchored "have been a lot more structured, and really don't offer as much opportunity to just kind of let loose and have fun." Bill enjoys the interviews, the fun stories and the segments that people get something out of when they wake up each morning. He says, "With this show I think we really have a connection with our viewers."
Bill says the hardest part about anchoring the morning show is "getting up at three o'clock in the morning!"
Bill was born and raised in Golden, Colorado, a small town just outside of Denver. He graduated with a degree in Journalism from Colorado State University in 1995. His news background includes jobs at news stations in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Broadcasting interested Bill ever since he was a little kid. However, he wanted to be a sports broadcaster at first. But after reporting both sports and news in Nebraska, he decided news was more challenging. He says he "loves the excitement, the breaking news and the fact that every day is different."
Bill is happily married to fellow News 4 anchor Shelby Sheehan.
In June of 2005, Bill and Shelby welcomed their first child into the world, and little Ryan Timothy has been keeping them busy ever since. And adding to their joy this past February of 2007, was another son named Jack William.
In addition to news, Bill loves going back to Colorado to visit his family, especially his nieces Ashley and Sadie. He also loves sports and his favorite teams are the Denver Broncos and the Colorado State University Rams. Bill spends his spare time fishing, camping and golfing.
