Hi! I’m Kristen Herrmann. I’m originally from Exeter Township in Reading, PA (Berks County). I moved to Philadelphia in 2002 to attend Temple University and never looked back. I love this city and I’m so proud to live here and work for this super fun radio station. I’ve worked within our radio cluster in one capacity or another since 2005. You can hear me on 95.7 BEN-FM weekday mornings from 6am-9am and on my BEN Around Philly show on Saturday mornings at 7:30am. CLICK HERE to listen to the podcast anytime!

Kristen’s sidekick/best pal is Gloria. She’s (as far as we know) the only full-time dog jockey in Philadelphia.
