Ruben joined All News 99.1 FM, WNEW, after almost five years at Federal News Radio, where he worked as a reporter and coordinating producer. He started his broadcasting career in Guam, working at a small, church-run music station.
He developed his passion for story-telling on the island, after a couple of major earthquakes and typhoons. He recalls venturing onto the dark, dangerous streets to scope out the damage and report his findings to family and friends.
Ruben later earned his journalism degree at the University of Maryland, where he helped launch an award-winning college radio magazine. Also at the university, he put his skills to use at the school’s Capital News Service TV as an anchor and reporter. And he served as an intern at WBAL Radio in Baltimore.
Today, he enjoys spending off-time with his wife and daughter. He also enjoys sampling new, flavorful foods.
