American news presenter who served as the sportscaster for Chicago's WLS-TV (an ABC-affiliate). At WLS in 1968, Frink was teamed with Fahey Flynn, Joel Daly and John Coleman to form the Eyewitness News team, creating a news brand name and establishing a highly successful new local news format derisively dubbed "happy talk" by a local television columnist. This style of local news has been widely copied. The team dominated Chicago television news ratings for more than a decade. During his time at Chicago's WLS-TV, Frink was one of Chicago's most popular sportscasters, known for his sense of humour and knowledge of sports. He died on 1 July 2005, aged 78, in Evanston, Illinois.
