Born and raised in Phoenix, Ben Flores graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in May 2017, and started working as an assistant digital editor at KJZZ in April 2018.
He has worked as a social media manager at Arizona PBS since October 2015, and as a staff writer since January 2018. He has also written for The State Press, arizonasports.com and The Arizona Republic. Ben was part of the digital production team at Cronkite News in January 2017 as well, and was the head producer for the podcast “In Focus.”
During the little free time he has, Ben likes to play video games, take in the Arizona sunsets and spend time with his wife — not in that order, of course.
