Director of Broadcast Services

Frank Christel has been a part of Public Radio Tulsa for over thirty years, first as Chief Engineer, then General Manager, and now as The University of Tulsa's Director of Broadcast Services. In 2004, he was instrumental in signing Classical 88.7 KWTU on-the-air. Before that, he worked at KBJH, KCFO, KAKC, and KBEZ in Tulsa and also served in the Navy during the Vietnam era. 

He was introduced to the magic of radio by his 9th grade math teacher who would, in class, play tape recordings of Stan Freberg's radio shows. His love of electronics grew by building hi-fi and shortwave radio electronic kits.

He's quite proud of his two daughters, their husbands, three four grandchildren, and is blessed by his lovely bride of more than 40 years.
