About Ben

About Ben
Ben's show is all about you and your life in our beautiful county of Somerset. Every weekday from 9am-midday he takes your calls, texts and emails about the day's big issues and the things that matter to you. Ben's well-known for his empathetic, warm interviewing so people are always keen to tell him their stories! Feel free to get involved!

Ben's show has picked up some awards along the way including the South West Media Award for the best current affairs programme in the region and a Mind Media Award for its coverage of mental health issues. You'll also hear Ben talking about his other half Jenna, their life in Somerset and his love of the local food and drink on offer here!
