Ben Briscoe is a reporter’s reporter. He’s not in the business for the face time and fame. Instead Ben sets out every day to create change and make his community a better place.
His National Edward R. Murrow Award- winning coverage has helped change six state laws, stopped the illegal use of tax dollars, and even resulted in innocent people walking free from trumped up murder charges.
Ben’s able to inspire change because of his unique ability to make a complicated issue simple to understand and fun to watch. Viewers often comment on his out of the box stand-ups and memorable storytelling moments.
Ben honed those skills over the past decade working in the industry. He started reporting for a newspaper in his small Texas hometown. A nice country boy, Ben then gained a city edge working in Dallas, Texas. With an eye to utilizing more visual tools to tell an impactful story, he switched to television journalism in Nevada and North Carolina.
If you remember nothing else, take note: Ben's twitter handle is @WatchDogBen, and he lives up to that name. But more than that, he makes you want to watch as well.
