When New Yorkers are looking for the latest on the city's vibrant theater scene, they turn to NY1 theater correspondent and host of "On Stage," Frank DiLella. A resident of the Upper West Side and native of Philadelphia, Frank attended Fordham University at Lincoln Center and has returned to his alma mater as a professor.
Frank began his time at NY1 in 2004 as an intern for "On Stage." After stints on the assignment desk and as a producer, Frank got his big break during the Broadway stagehand strike of 2007, where he was asked to lead NY1's coverage. Frank continued to appear on camera on "On Stage" through 2016, eventually taking over as host in 2017.
Over the years, Frank has received eight Emmy Awards, five New York Press Club Awards and a 2022 Association of LGBTQ Journalists Award for hosting the 2021 NY1 special “Pride and Perseverance”.
