Ben Burrell

Presenter, Absolute Radio


Ben currently presents on Absolute Radio and Absolute 90’s across the UK.

Ben’s love for radio started when he joined university getting involved with student and then community radio in Portsmouth. In his last year at uni he won the first ever Demo Factor competition leading him to present across the then Galaxy network.

After graduating he worked at his local station presenting Drive time, before quickly moving onto The Breeze where his evening show was heard across 16 stations. During his time on the show it saw a regular increase in its audience, including one 3 month period by 68% (only some of which were close friends and family!).

Ben went on to present for Free Radio in the Midlands where until recently he was the Drive-time presenter on Birmingham’s Free Radio and Nottingham’s Gem 106 weekend evenings.

When not on air Ben likes to listen to music, play the guitar, watch football and talk about himself in the third person on his biography.
