Frank Seltzer, passed away Sunday, Dec. 19 2021, after a brief illness.
Frank enjoyed a long career in broadcast journalism, which began as a desk assistant at NBC News while attending American University in Washington, D.C. After graduating in 1972, Frank’s career blossomed as he covered world events as a writer, correspondent, reporter, anchorman and producer for various broadcast news outlets, including Voice of America; NBC local affiliates in Columbus, Ohio, and Corpus Christi, Texas; CNN and ABC News. He eventually settled in Dallas, Texas, and in 1986 established Singing Pig Productions, offering communications consultant
services to clients. Frank’s journalistic style hearkened back to an earlier age—he relentlessly pursued facts and presented the news confidently and fairly, with a slightly sardonic twist that often brought a clever touch of humor to his reporting.
While Frank pursued a career in journalism, perhaps his first love was magic. Frank was a skilled magician who was a member of The Society of American Magicians, The International Brotherhood of Magicians, and Los Angeles’ famous The Magic Castle. He also served as president of the Dallas Magic Club and The Texas Association of Magicians in 2017.
