Where is Sammi Marino? People want to know what happened to the absent KLOS host after she disappeared from the Heidi & Frank show on 95.5 in Los Angeles, California.

Who is Sammi Marino?

The radio personality is known in Los Angeles for her role in the Heidi & Frank Show, on KLOS, with Frank Kramer and Heidi Hamilton. She and Erik Scott Smith are the sidekicks of the two main hosts.

Marino has worked for various Los Angeles-based radio stations for many years. These include the likes of KFWB-AM, KABC-AM and KKGO-FM, according to Lights Fashion Beauty.

The Charlton, Massachusetts native eventually landed at KLOS-FM where she first worked on The Mark & Brian Show, until the duo retired in August 2012.

Sammi stayed with the terminal and began in an off-air role at the The Heidi & Frank Show, but soon entered into the on-air team.

She also featured on Dish Nation, a show which features radio personalities discussing the latest entertainment news on television.

Her family moved from Massachusetts when Sammi was 11-years-old, settling in Castaic, California. Sammi attended Valencia High School, where she was a cheerleader. She then studied at College of the Canyons in nearby Santa Clarita.

Where is Sammi Marino? The personality is missing from airwaves

At the end of April people began querying Sammi Marino’s absence from the KLOS airwaves. “Where’s @SammiMarino?” wrote one Los Angeles resident, tagging the station’s Twitter handle.

Another person tweeted on 7 May, asking Sammi directly if she is OK. “Are you ok? Where have you been? When you coming back??? We miss you lots!!” the fan said.

However, Sammi’s Twitter page has been inactive since August 2017. Another fan of the show wondered if 95.5 KLOS FM had fired the radio personality.

“I keep wondering if @955KLOS has once again become the new @kroq
& fired talent like Sammi Marino like they did Frosty and others last year? I know @heidiandfrank_ can’t/won’t say anything, but the fans need to know. Is #KLOS the new #KROQ???” the fan wrote.

The show has indeed been silent on the matter, continuing to post on social media without mentioning whether Sammi will return. “I wish they would tell us where the h*** Sammi is!” wrote one fed up fan underneath a Facebook post on the show’s page.

With no official word from the show or from Sammi herself, it remains a mystery as to why she hasn’t featured on the Heidi & Frank Show, and whether she will return.
