The California chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences recently conducted a very insightful question and answer session with former 56/Fox25er Frank Mallicoat. Among the discussed topics are his climb up the ladder from New Hampshire to Boston, as well as a nice look at the transition from his tenure on The Ten O’Clock News to Fox25.
In the interview, a comparison of both Boston and San Francisco markets is conducted, and the answer is very compelling. The Q&A, seen on EmmySF.tv, can be found here.
As you may know, Frank Mallicoat left Fox25 in January 2011 to accept the position as morning anchor for WBZ sister station KPIX in San Francisco.
Over two decades since his arrival, WFXT anchor Frank Mallicoat is saying goodbye to New England and returning to his home state of California. Mallicoat, the now former weekend anchor at Fox 25, accepted the position of morning news anchor at San Francisco’s KPIX-TV, the local CBS affiliate and a stablemate and Group W station with WBZ.
Mallicoat began his tenure in New England at WMUR in 1986, then as a sports reporter for the old WLVI in 1992, and subsequently moved to Detroit in 1997. However, he returned to WB56 in 1998 as the sports director. He became the primary anchor in 2002 and maintained that position until the dissolution of the station’s news department in December 2006. He joined Fox 25 in 2007 as a weekend anchor.
His final newscast was this evening at 10pm, and he begins work at San Francisco’s Channel 5 in February. His replacement has not yet been named. Hit the jump for his final sign-off from Fox 25′s 10pm newscast.
