Ben Bombard

Independent Producer

A Salt Lake native, Benjamin Bombard served numerous internships in the KUER newsroom before becoming a producer of RadioWest. He aspired to the position for years, and in his sometimes wayward pursuit of it he has worked as a print and radio journalist in Utah, Wyoming and California, a horse wrangler in East Canyon, a golf course “bag rat” in Massachusetts, a dishwasher, a bookseller, a librarian, a children’s museum guide, a barista, a linecook and a male nanny or “manny.” He has also dished up gelato to Mafiosos in Providence, R.I., and worked as a volunteer for a health NGO in Mali, West Africa, where he declined an offer to act as a blood-diamond mule. He spends most of his free time cooking and baking in the kitchen and running up and down mountains along the Wasatch Front with his two dogs.
