Weather Anchor
Jay Frank is a native Oregonian who traveled to The City College of New York to play basketball and earn his degree in Broadcast Journalism. After graduation, he started as a morning live reporter and then morning anchor here in the Tri-Cities, before moving to Bend, Oregon, where he served as the inaugural main anchor for KOHD-TV.

Jay is a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and a decorated playwright, with his current show, "Ten Cent Treasure," occasionally playing locally. He lives in Kennewick, works in Pasco, and attends church in Richland, which he says makes for his own personal ”triple crown, Tri-Cities style.”

Jay can currently be seen anchoring and delivering your Storm Tracker forecasts on Action News weekday mornings.

Booker Auction will feature surplus materials from the City of Richland at its Saturday, November 5 auction, which begins at 9 a.m. in Eltopia.

The city has several police seizure vehicles, city vehicles, a trailer and welder going to auction. An interactive website features detailed information, photos and the ability to bid on-line.

The City of Richland no longer coordinates its own surplus equipment and vehicle sales, but offers it on consignment to Booker Auction.

This change increases the number of prospective buyers and decreases time, labor, advertising and liability for the city.
