The twice-weekly, hour-long program, brought to you by the Craftsman World of DIY Network, will be broadcast from a brand-new social media studio in downtown Chicago, the Craftsman Experience.

Frank’s goal? To deliver creative, affordable solutions for helping Americans build and manage their space at home.

His maiden guest will be former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi, who also served as chairman and CEO of Team Rensi Motorsports—his entry into the world of NASCAR auto racing. What’s more, Ed’s car now lives in the Craftsman Experience.

Plus, Chicago Custom Percussion owner Tony Gulli, and hot segments like Carpenter Confessions and DIY Disasters.
