He began his broadcasting career as a presenter at the Cross River State Broadcasting Corporation after receiving his degree. He also served as the host of a breakfast program for Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Channel 9, Calabar. In 1999, Frank relocated to Metro FM 97.6, where he hosted radio programs for the station.
He was however made well-known by the hit program Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. In addition to hosting TV shows, he works as a voice actor, photographer, producer, and director.

He returned to the show in February 2022. Frank’s first marriage to Katherine Obiang, which produced three children before their separation in 2011, was not a happy one.
