Ben Prater

Bristol boy Ben has just chalked up ten years at BBC Radio Bristol. In that time he's read the news, been the roving radio car reporter and presented Breakfast with his good friend Nigel Dando. Now he fronts the Drive programme and brings you the day's news and a smorgasbord of local features that make you smile.

Small Talk gives our local schoolchildren a chance to shine and Ben's Bristol Bingo Balls let everyday folk tell us why they love the west country so much. Our Club we Love feature celebrates local sports, arts and community teams.

Away from work, Ben lives at Totterdown Towers with his wife Sally, has two children and another on the way and would one day like to live in the Chew Valley and own an Old English Sheepdog called Wellington.
