Ben Wilcox joined STN as a freshman during his first week at the University of Hartford. Now a senior Deans List student, Ben has been elected to the position of General Manager. Ben serves as the Chief Executive and Chairperson of the organization. Ben was the news director for STN2 news from 2010-2012. During that time it was Ben's job to find and assign all of the stories, supervise reporters, and approve their scripts. He also appoints anchors for the live newscast each week. It was a perfect fit for Ben, as he has had a fervent love for news since the fourth grade. He was even able to interview a local anchor at the age of ten. As his love of news and local television held strong he was able to obtain an internship at his local CBS affiliate WPRI-TV in Providence Rhode Island, before arriving in Hartford. In his spare time Ben enjoys the benefits surrounding his lifelong home in Cranston, Rhode Island. On any given day you could find him on the golf course, enjoying a good meal at an area restaurant with friends and family, hanging out with his dogs and cats, and keeping a close eye on the auto industry.
