Ben Moses, W6FY Ben Moses, W6FY, is a documentarian,
television producer, director, writer,
and filmmaker. He is the author of
“Good Morning, Vietnam” and the
documentary “A Whisper to a Roar.”
Raised in southern Illinois, amateur radio
introduced him to the world beyond his
hometown. Ben earned his first "ham
radio” license at the age of ten and his
First Class Television Engineering License at the age of 16. In
1977, Ben Moses moved to Los Angeles to work on Barry
Manilow's first television special as Associate Director. Under
director Marty Pase a and the produc on team that produced
the Academy Awards, Emmy Awards and Grammy Awards
specials, Moses worked as stage manager and Associate Director
on those and many other live musical-variety specials for CBS,
ABC and NBC.
Ben says, “Ge ng on the air has always felt like I'm joining an
already-in-progress social gathering where I'm likely to run into
someone I know and sure to meet new people and make new
friends.”
