Born near Syracuse, but graduating high school south of Rochester, Ben knows upstate New York well, and is looking forward to telling the stories that matter here in the Twin Tiers.

A proud State University of New York at Oswego graduate (go Lakers!), Ben graduated with a degree in Broadcasting and Mass Communications from SUNY Oswego's school of Communications, Media, and the Arts. He worked at WTOP 10, SUNY Oswego's all student-run television station, for three years, and also covered Oswego sports, both college and high school, for WNYO-FM, the school's radio station. He also held internships with WROC-TV in Rochester and NEP Studios in New York City.

Ben started his career in television as an Overnight Producer in Rochester at Nexstar's Sister-Station WROC. During his more than two years there, Ben produced a number of shows around major news events that happened overnight, and also heard some of the strangest scanner calls ever.

Outside of the newsroom, Ben enjoys sports, reading, and writing stories. He is also a huge Star Wars nerd, and loves musical theater as well. He remains forever loyal to his Buffalo Bills, and continues to hope that someday soon they will win a Super Bowl. Or reach a Super Bowl. Really, the playoffs would be nice at this point. His spirits are normally buoyed in the winter months by Syracuse basketball.

Ben is extremely proud to be part of the Twin Tiers community, and the WETM 18 News team.
