He’s written speeches for congressman and jokes for Jay Leno. Winner of 7 Edward R. Murrow awards for radio and television writing, his 2004 National Murrow award for writing was presented by Dan Rather, Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw.

A 20+ year talk show host veteran for ABC, Hearst and Clear Channel and Cumulus, The Wall Street Journal says “Chip has a razor sharp wit,” and The Washington Post says “Franklin brings a sense of irony to a medium that rarely trusts its audience to get the joke.” The Post, reviewing his eponymous recording debut said the “Musicianship was practically peerless.”

An award making filmmaker, Chip consults, politicians, lawyers, doctors, and other professionals on new media.


Ding Dong the King is Dead

January 25th, 2015

Have to say, and this might be politically naive, but I wish Obama wasn’t going to Saudi Arabia. The king was and is everything that’s wrong with the way men treat women. Beatings, genital mutilation, honor killings are just a few of the issues that plague Saudi culture. That said, western influence, even with all of it’s peccadillos, is still the best chance for the next generation over there. And for the record, the west still has to get it’s house in order, re; the GOP sponsored bill that denies abortions to women who are raped unless they file a criminal complaint.
