Ben Caleb Harvey (born February 18, 1979 in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania[1]) is an American radio and television personality, best known for his evening radio show on the now-defunct 92.3 K-Rock in New York City.

Early in his career, Harvey worked at WBRU, Brown University’s commercial alternative rock station, where he started as a DJ at the age of nineteen. Fellow notable alumni include Chris Berman, anchor, ESPN and ABC Sports; Stephen Hill, executive VP of programming at BET; and Alison Stewart, daytime anchor for MSNBC and former VJ for MTV.

Harvey’s first major-market radio stint was at Y100 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he worked the evening shift starting in 2001. In 2003, Harvey joined 92.3 K-Rock in New York City, where he worked the prime-time evening slot.

When K-Rock changed formats to become the all-talk Free FM in 2005, Harvey left the station. He then went to work for the LGBT-related here! television network, where he hosted numerous podcasts and TV programs.

The Ben and Dave Show, which premiered online at heretv.com in October 2007, features Harvey along with his co-host, comedian Dave Rubin.[2] A televised version of the show premiered on here! on March 14, 2008.[3] The Ben and Dave Show disappeared from the here! schedule shortly after the television debut with no explanation. Harvey and Rubin launched a new podcast in May 2009, Ben and Dave's Six Pack.

Presently, Harvey is an on-air host and personality for Radio with a Twist, the nationally syndicated radio show owned by Premiere Radio Networks.

In 2007, Harvey was the recipient of the NLGJA Excellence in Online Journalism Award for his role as host of here! At the Movies, along with director Michael Eldridge and producer Eric Feldman.[4]
