2018 Keynote Speaker
Frank Sontag has always blazed his own trail. Growing up in an Italian-American neighborhood in Cleveland, he and his family moved to the Los Angeles area in the mid-1960s when he was nine years old.
Precocious for his age—he skipped fourth grade—he was the product of the do-your-own-thing, love-the-one-you’re-with attitude of the Sixties.
He worked in supermarkets during his twenties while pursuing pleasure. A horrific motorcycle accident in 1984 should have killed him, but he survived, which set him on a quest to find out why he was still alive.
His search led him to a grab bag of spiritual philosophies, with New Age thought leading the way.
A career change into Los Angeles radio gave him the opportunity to host a Sunday night talk show called Impact on the biggest classic rock station in Los Angeles—KLOS 95.5 FM.
For twenty-one years, Frank led a region-wide discussion on spirituality that was open to all faiths and all philosophies, except for one.
