Ben Parsons joined WRIC in January 2021 as a Producer.
He comes to Richmond from Beaumont, TX, where he produced newscasts and filmed high school football for KBMT/KJAC. During his time at KBMT, Ben covered breaking news, such as the historic flooding of Tropical Storm Imelda, Hurricane Laura, Hurricane Beta and the TPC plant explosions.
Born in New York City, but raised in Leesburg, VA., Ben is extremely excited to be back home in the Commonwealth and close to family.
He is a proud Gamecock graduate of the University of South Carolina where he had the opportunity to cover big sporting events such as the Men’s Final Four and SEC football games. He interned with WOLO in Columbia, S.C. and was the executive producer of the student-run sports network at USC.
When he is not in the newsroom, Ben is almost guaranteed to be glued to the television watching sports. He is an avid Washington Football, Capitals, Nationals, Wizards and Baltimore Orioles fan.
