In 2010, Johnson received a street renaming in his honor from the city of Baltimore located in his childhood neighborhood, West Baltimore. That same year he launched Frank Johnson Media, a creative development company focusing on strategic-marketing, social media influencing, product development, promotions and media influence based in the Mid Atlantic region. With over 30+ years experience as an entertainment executive in the music and marketing industry, Johnson has had the opportunity to support various companies, brands while also acquiring people access to national visibility and exposure.
