Originally from Texas, Ben Spradling has now called the Puget Sound home for more than a decade. He graduated from Texas Tech University with degrees in public relations and mass communication prior to pursuing a media relations career in professional sports. Ben ultimately logged a combined eight years managing communications initiatives in minor league baseball with the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds and Tacoma Rainiers. Most recently, he helped spearhead media relations efforts for the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, operator of Washington Healthplanfinder, the state’s online health insurance marketplace.
Ben and his family love experiencing cultural and outdoor events unique to Western Washington. When he isn’t headed to a concert, planning his next hike or scoping out a new Mexican food restaurant, you can find Ben connecting with the community and developing relationships with businesses that make this region so great.
