Ben Trefny is KALW's executive news editor. He got his start in public radio in Eugene, Oregon, volunteering at KLCC while earning a Masters degree in journalism at the University of Oregon.
Ben and his wife moved to San Francisco upon graduation, where he worked as a reporter and producer for various public and commercial radio programs. He always thought the Bay Area should have a nightly regional public radio news show, and his goal was met when KALW launched Crosscurrents in August of 2008.
Ben lives with his wife and twin children in San Francisco's Sunset District, near where Golden Gate Park meets Ocean Beach. He strives for balance in his personal life, and to create informative, exciting, and engaging programming as a public radio journalist.
