Ben Goldman reports and anchors for the FOX61 News.
Ben is a hometown guy having grown up in Wethersfield.
He got his start at the ripe age of 16 years old when he got hired to be a freelance reporter at FOX61 reporting on Connecticut Charities twice each week as the host of Ben Goldman’s Charity Corner.
As a stage 3 brain cancer survivor, Ben has strong ties to non-profits all throughout the state and told their stories from 2012 to 2014.
Before graduating, Ben was the head anchor for UCONN’s UCTV-Channel 14 newscast since he started there. He and the team won Best College Newscast in the country in the 2016 College Media Awards.
After his time at FOX61, Ben reported on weekends in Springfield, Mass. for Western Mass News.
Ben has also interned for various stations like PIX11 in New York City and also for NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
Outside of work, Ben is an avid golfer, and does his best to play three or four times each week. He was also the Co-Chairman of the 2015 Travelers Championship.
When he’s not golfing you will surely see him around Connecticut trying new restaurants (he’s a self-proclaimed ‘foodie’). As a local to the area, he’s often with his family and friends that he’s grown up with, enjoying the place the he calls home and telling the stories of people right here in it.
