Ben Hunte - entertainment presenter and journalist
Ben is an exciting new entertainment presenter!
In 2013 Ben was runner-up in Blue Peter's search for a new presenter. Over 20,000 people applied for the role before the final 10 battled it out across eight weeks on CBBC's Blue Peter: You Decide!.
Ben faced numerous challenges that encompassed every aspect of being an entertainment presenter, including interviewing pop stars, doing a Blue Peter "here's one I made earlier" and presenting from a moving rollercoaster, each passed with aplomb. With his infectious smile and personality, Ben continually won over the judges, including Eamonn Holmes, and got expert advice from Dick & Dom.
Ben had to put his studies on hold for three months to take part in the series and so after the final he returned to university to complete his degree in Psychology in Malaysia where he was also Student Union President. He has recently returned to launch his media career in earnest. He has presented 4hrs of live studio programming, presented for the world famous Electric Love festival in Austria and returned to CBBC reporting for Match of the Day Kickabout.
In 2016 Ben decided to expand his expertise by pursuing a career in broadcast journalism. He has since made investigative films for Channel 5 News, BBC London and Newsbeat. In 2017 he produced and presented his own series as part of the Gay Britannia season on BBC Radio 4 Extra.
