Ben Peck joined the KMID/KPEJ team as Sports Director in August 2018.

Before coming down to the Permian Basin, Ben worked as a weekend sports anchor/reporter just up the road in Lubbock at FOX34.

Growing up, Ben was able to experience many diverse parts of the country. Born in Greenville, South Carolina, he then enjoyed living near Atlanta, Chicago, and Houston throughout the course of his childhood. The Windy City sports teams were the ones who won over his fandom.

He graduated from Friendswood High School (TX) in 2010, and then attended Syracuse University where he majored in broadcast journalism and finance.

Ben first became interested in pursuing sports journalism when he realized his lanky, six-foot frame lacking significant speed/strength would not likely result in a professional athletic career (to be kind).
