Get to know Ben!
Ben joined the KOLO 8 News Now team in August of 2012. He comes to us from KULR-TV in Billings, Montana, where he spent more than two years as a Sports Anchor/Reporter.
A California native, Ben is thrilled to be back on the West Coast. He grew up in Santa Monica, California and graduated from UC Berkeley in 2007 with a degree in mass communications. After finishing school, Ben spent two years at KNTV in San Francisco as a Sports Producer, and a year at CSN Bay Area as a Sports Editor.
Ben is a lifelong sports fan and an avid follower of the Los Angeles Kings, Dodgers and Lakers, as well as his Cal Bears (hopefully we’ll stop scheduling the Pack!). In his free time, he enjoys hiking, boating, skiing, playing guitar, and of course, watching sports.
Ben is very excited to be in such a great sports town, and looks forward to covering the Wolf Pack, as well as all the other great teams in Northern Nevada. You can send him your story ideas at email@example.com and follow him on Twitter @BenRossKOLO.
