Former ‘American Pickers’ Star Frank Fritz Suffers From Stroke, Reveals Co-host Mike Wolfe

Former star of “American Pickers” Frank Fritz has been hospitalized with a stroke, his former co-host Mike Wolfe revealed on social media.

On Instagram Thursday, the 58-year-old Wolfe posted the news alongside a photo of a healthier 56-year-old Fritz. Wolfe remarked he wishes for his friend’s speedy recovery.

“I have been very private in the past year in regards to Franks life and the journey he’s been on,” he wrote. “There has been lots of opinions in regards to mine and Frank’s friendship and the show but now is not the time to set the record straight. Now is the time to pray for my friend.”

“Frank has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital. Please keep him in your hearts and thoughts,” he said, addressing fans.

Wolfe added, “Frank I pray more than anything that you make it through this okay. I love you buddy.”

“American Pickers” debuted in 2010, and the pair starred in the show together until Fritz left due to health concerns in July 2021.
