Ben Fordham - Sydney Live

Monday - Friday 3:00pm to 6:00pm

Ben Fordham is often asked what his preferred media medium is - radio or television?

The truth is he finds both equally challenging and enjoyable.

At Sydney's No. 1 rating radio station, 2GB, Ben, since 2011, has hosted Sydney Live in the 3pm-6pm shift, a program that consistently tops the ratings.

His efforts were rewarded at both the 2014 and 2015 Australian Commercial Radio Awards when he was voted best metropolitan talk presenter.

After launching his media career at Sydney's Radio 2UE and Sky News Australia, Ben joined the Nine Network in 1999 and, after lengthy stints with A Current Affair and the Today Show, his television talents these days spread across a number of Nine's news and current affairs programs.

Ben's coming-of-age in journalism arrived before he celebrated his 21st birthday.

Then a 2UE political correspondent in the Parliament House Press Gallery in Canberra, Ben won a Walkley Award - Australia's top award in journalism - for his coverage of the Thredbo landslide tragedy and a Raward - the top accolade in the Australian radio industry - for excellence in journalism. He became the youngest reporter in history to win a Walkley-Raward double and was honoured on Australia Day with a Young Citizen of the Year award.

Thanks to his job, Ben has built close contacts with some inspiring people who've dedicated their lives to helping others.

Away from his media engagements, Ben volunteers for several charities in the areas of fundraising, lobbying, strategy and as a Master of Ceremonies.

Ben is married to Seven Network journalist Jodie Speers and they have a young son Freddy.
