For twenty-one years, on KLOS FM, Frank Sontag led a region-wide discussion on spirituality that was open to all faiths and all philosophies, except for one based on a Savior who died on a cross nearly 2,000 years ago. Rediscovering Christ in 2009 eventually led him to his current daily broadcast on KKLA.
About the Host
Frank Sontag has always blazed his own trail. Growing up in an Italian-American neighborhood in Cleveland, he and his family moved to the Los Angeles area in the mid-1960s when he was nine years old. Precocious for his age—he skipped fourth grade—he was the product of the do-your-own-thing, love-the-one-you’re-with attitude of the Sixties. He worked in supermarkets during his twenties while pursuing pleasure. A horrific motorcycle accident in 1984 should have killed him, but he survived, which set him on a quest to find out why he was still alive. His search led him to a grab bag of spiritual philosophies, with New Age thought leading the way. A career change into Los Angeles radio gave him the opportunity to host a Sunday night talk show called Impact on the biggest classic rock station in Los Angeles—KLOS 95.5 FM. For twenty-one years, Frank led a region-wide discussion on spirituality that was open to all faiths and all philosophies, except for one based on a Savior who died on a cross nearly 2,000 years ago. Little did Frank know that Jesus Christ was calling him on a different line.
