A Passionate Sports Host: Mark Franz


Mark Frantz, is a sophomore transfer student at Saint Joseph’s University. Mark has a strong passion for sports and co-hosts a radio show, “The Ultimate Sports Show” every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. The show covers everything sports on Radio1851. He is a huge New Orleans Pelicans fan which seems odd since we are in Philadelphia; however, his family comes from New Orleans and enjoys Saints Football and Pelicans Basketball.

Mark’s favorite athletes are Anthony Davis, a Pelicans star power forward, and Drew Brees, who enabled the Saints to win their only title in the 2009 Super Bowl 44. Mark previously wrote for isports.web where he blogged each week for the Philadelphia Eagles, Pelicans and Saints. He received backlash from his fans when he posted many blunt comments in regard to the Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver and corner back problems.
