Frankie Graziano

Host / Producer, The Wheelhouse

Frankie Graziano’s career in broadcast journalism continues to evolve.

It began in sports production when Graziano was hired by Connecticut Public to launch its new sports network largely dedicated to high school sports. Then he moved from public television over to public radio to report on sports. In 2017, he worked with his boss to develop a breaking news beat at Connecticut Public. Graziano followed police reform efforts,chased politicians around, and broke national news.

Now – after hosting a series of debate recaps on television and a bunch of roundtables on local government – Graziano’s moving onto politics.

As the host of The Wheelhouse on Connecticut Public, Frankie focuses on how local and national politics impact the people of Connecticut.

Graziano works as hard as he does to support his family. He lives with his wife Colleen, a nurse practitioner, in Glastonbury. They’ve got two kids—Charlie and Annie.

He’s originally from Torrington. He’s a first-generation Italian-American—his parents Rosie and Franco were born in Italia.
