Ben has 8 fingers and 2 thumbs despite growing up in local villages around Andover, Over Wallop and Shipton Bellinger. He still claims that his mother is NOT his sister, though the jury is still out until the DNA results come back.

Ben has been in the local advertising game for 7 years. Starting at the Andover Advertiser, then onto Andover Sound which then became the Breeze, it was here that he met a vibrant younger David Harber, and thus the dynamic duo was born.

After Breeze, Ben’s passion for local radio brought him to Castledown FM where he served on the board as commercial director. Ben says, “I just love the radio industry, but more important I’m passionate about the economic growth of Andover, we have so many great local business and radio gives them a great platform to promote their business, I have many friends who are business owners and I get a kick out of helping them achieve their advertising and marketing goals”

Ben is social chap who enjoys a good ole beer, but his current passion is the swiping right technique on Tinder, which he still hasn’t mastered yet.


FIRST JOB: Stripper. Stripping copper wire with his Uncle Darren at around 8.

FAVOURITE FILM: Lord of the Rings Trilogy or Scarface.


MOST LIKELY TO: Swipe right on Tinder

LEAST LIKELY TO: Be swiped right on Tinder
