Ben currently presents afternoon’s on Absolute Radio, plus Absolute 90’s across the UK and often covers the Absolute Radio Breakfast Show with Dave Berry.

Ben’s love for radio started when he joined university getting involved with student and then community radio in Portsmouth. In his last year at uni he won the first ever Demo Factor (then called Demo Idol) competition leading him to present across the then Galaxy network.

After graduating he worked at his local station presenting Drive time, before quickly moving to The Breeze presenting evenings across 16 stations. Ben went on to present for Free Radio in the Midlands where he was the Drive-time presenter on Birmingham’s Free Radio and Nottingham’s Gem 106 weekend evenings.

Ben has hosted Demo Factor since 2017.
