Christian Broadcaster Frank Pastore in Coma Following Motorcycle Accident

Frank PastorePopular Christian talk radio host Frank Pastore was injured in a motorcycle accident last week and remains in a coma.

Pastore, who is the host of a daily show on radio station KKLA in Glendale, CA, suffered major head injuries the night of November 19 when his motorcycle was sideswiped by a vehicle on Interstate Highway 210 in Duarte, CA. Though he has shown signs of improvement, Pastore’s condition remains “serious,” according to his wife.

In response, Christian leaders and fellow broadcasters, including Dr. James Dobson, have asked the public to join them in praying for Pastore’s recovery.

“Please join us in praying for Frank Pastore, a good friend, who was in a serious motorcycle accident last week and remains in a coma,” expressed Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council.

“Prayers are needed for Christian radio host Frank Pastore,” added the staff at Mornings on Moody.

NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright, meanwhile, had this to say about Pastore: "Frank is one of the most thoughtful and energetic talk show hosts on Christian radio.  His mantra is about the intersection of faith and reason – a good description of Frank's life."

KKLA has encouraged its listeners to send Pastore and his family cards and letters of support to P.O. Box 29023, Glendale, CA 91209.

“Please continue to pray for him and his family; it’s truly a blessing to know how much Frank is loved, and his family is very grateful for all the support,” the KKLA management team expressed on its website.

Filling in for Pastore during his absence has been veteran LA radio personality Frank Sontag.
