Ben Burke

Primary News Producer

Ben is the primary news producer at Straight Arrow News. His main responsibility is producing the news updates throughout the day. He has spent the last three years producing the 2 1/2-hour morning show at a local news station in Omaha. There, he also produced, reported and sometimes anchored the station’s high school football show, “Friday Night Fever”.

His passion for covering sports started during college where he covered Mizzou Athletics including Tiger Football. He graduated with a Bachelor’s in Journalism with an emphasis in Sports Radio and TV from the University of Missouri. His love of sports (exemplified by his unconditional support for his Minnesota home teams, despite the heartbreak they’ve brought him – Skol!) is only matched by his love of dogs. In his spare time, he helps run a dog treat business hoping to go nationwide.
