He came to Goshen to study broadcasting.
But in the meantime
he has pursued excellence.
Benjamin’s voice can be heard booming across the baseball field as he encourages his teammates, or on the radio as he talks sports. But his good voice isn’t the only reason Benjamin won first place for the best sports talk show in the country. He lives sports. He can’t get enough of sports. And that passion emanates throughout other areas of his life.
Benjamin plays catcher on the Goshen College baseball team; he covers sports for the student-produced TV news broadcast called The Correspondent; and he is the sports director for Goshen College’s radio station, 91.1FM WGCS-The Globe (listen for yourself!). And he is doing all of this with excellence, winning awards left and right, along with his fellow broadcasting students. While The Globe was named the 2011 Best College Station in the Nation by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS), individually, Benjamin won first place nationally for Best Sports Talk Show. And at the state level, he has won first place awards for both radio and television broadcasting in the same year. Keep listening, because one day, he might just be heard announcing the World Series.
