Early life and education

Ben Ferguson was born to Bruce and Karen Ferguson on August 28, 1981. He has an older sister, Holly. Ferguson was homeschooled by his mother through the tenth grade. Ben has Scottish ancestry. A local talk-radio host throughout his teens, Ferguson attended Tusculum College, but later, graduated from Westminster Academy. He went on to the University of Mississippi, intending to play tennis; he became a member of Kappa Alpha Order Fraternity. He graduated from Ole Miss in 2004. Ben married Anna Bradley Ferguson in March 2010.

Political activities

Ferguson is a member of Students for Saving Social Security (S4). In July 2005, as S4's political director, Ferguson was selected by the White House to join President Bush and Ben Stein for a town hall meeting in an effort to educate the public on the issue of social security reform. Ferguson also spends several weeks a year on the road speaking at youth leadership conferences, high schools and college campuses nationwide. He has become a regular keynote speaker for several groups, including Congressional Youth Leadership and Lead America.

Ferguson is an avid critic of former Memphis Mayor W. W. Herenton. When Herenton resigned and then decided to run again for mayor not two weeks later, Ferguson entered the political scene and pulled a petition to run for Memphis City Mayor. He withdrew from the election when Herenton also withdrew.

Broadcasting career

At 13, Ben Ferguson became the youngest radio talk show host in the country, and the youngest nationally syndicated host at 20. Ferguson published his first book, a political work, “It’s My America Too,” published by William Morris/Harper Collins in 2004 which USA Today named a “top choice read.”

In August 2007, Ferguson joined 600 WREC in Memphis as its morning radio host. He was then moved to the afternoon drive show from 4-7 PM CT. On April 20, 2010, Ferguson resigned from WREC. In a statement he said, "I have left the station, effective today. I’m looking forward to a new market and a new show, in addition to my national show and my continuing appearances on such networks as CNBC, CNN and MSNBC."

Later, it was stated that Ferguson left WREC after an impasse in contract negotiations. It was then announced that Ben Ferguson would take over the 4-7 PM slot on another local radio station, KWAM. Controversial radio host Thaddeus Matthews was fired to make room for Ferguson.

On April 1, 2012, Ferguson became the regular fill-in for Mark Davis on WBAP in Texas, as Davis was involved in contract disputes with the new owners of WBAP, Cumulus Media. When a new contract could not be reached between Mark Davis and Cumulus, Ferguson became the permanent host of the 9 - 11 AM CT time slot. Ben currently lives in Dallas, Texas.

Ferguson's national talk-radio show focuses on current events from a conservative point of view. The Ben Ferguson Show can be heard over ICON Radio Network weekly on Sunday evenings from 7-10 PM ET.

Ferguson hosted a local radio show in Memphis during evening drive time slot (from 4-7 PM) weekdays on WREC (600 AM) in Memphis until April 20, 2010. On May 3, 2010, KWAM 990 announced that he would be their new evening drive time host. On April 25, 2011, Ben moved to WKIM 98.9 FM, coinciding with a format change in the station to an all-talk network.

A prominent element of Ferguson's broadcast style is to immediately repeat most statements two, three, or four times for emphasis. He also appears frequently on Fox News Channel, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox Business, CNN, and CNN Headline News.

Republican National Convention appearance

Ferguson addressed the 2004 Republican National Convention. His speech was quoted in various news outlets, including the Chicago Tribune, Toronto Star and Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

God, I've Got A Problem
God, I've Got A Problem
How to deal with:ForgivenessGuiltLonelinessWorryDisappointmentDepressionTemptationBoredomPrideand Death“God has promised us a safe landing but not a smooth journey.” I don’t know who uttered those words, but they express a central truth of the Christian life—Christians aren’t immune from the problems associated with being human.Problems, like the rain, fall on the just as well as the unjust. At one time or another worry, guilt, doubt, guilt, loneliness, or depression will knock on our door and invite itself in. Unfortunately we can’t hit “control, alt, delete” and start over. We have to deal with them, but there’s good news. The Bible provides tools to help us overcome daily problems and God’s solutions to life’s problems are a lot less complicated than the experts would have us believe.Most of the problems we face do not stand alone. Each has relatives among the other problems; they overlap each other. As a result, some of the tools may appear to overlap as well. We’ll look at some of the problems we face and the tools God has made available so that being human does not break our spirit or rob us of the joy of being a child of God. As you read this book, I pray God will bring healing to your heart and mind, giving you renewed hope and joy to face each day.Newly updated from previous versions.

It's My America Too: A Leading Young Conservative Shares His Views on Politics and Other Matters of Importance
It's My America Too: A Leading Young Conservative Shares His Views on Politics and Other Matters of Importance
With It's My America Too, Ben Ferguson, the voice of America's youth and the host of The Ben Ferguson Show, one of the country's fastest-growing syndicated radio shows, delivers his views on all the issues, from politics to current affairs to popular culture. Everyone wants to know what Ferguson will say next -- and here's your chance.Ben Ferguson is a conservative who is also an independent thinker unafraid to take contrary positions. In It's My America Too, the twenty-two-year-old media star shoots from the hip and the lip on numerous topics. Ferguson tells us why he thinks the voting age should be lowered to sixteen; who the "New Minority" is -- the twenty-something men and women who are overworked, underpaid, overmarketed, and drastically underrepresented; why politicians talk about and at young adults, but never to them; how he feels about everything from homeschooling to sex, NASCAR, and George W. Bush; and much more.Ferguson's message is clear. He is not on a campaign to reform liberals and turn them into right-wing Republicans. He is presenting his views on American society and challenging those who do not agree with him to an open debate. Some will not agree with his political and religious views. What he hopes to accomplish, with both his radio show and this book, is to energize future generations about politics. The way to do this is through open communication. He is encouraging his generation (and even some in previous generations) to get involved and be heard.Hip and forthright, funny yet never pedantic, Ferguson offers a fresh viewpoint and insights on topics such as "What the Republican Party can learn from Bill Clinton"; "Why anti-Americanism is our problem"; and "Dubya: my favorite redneck." He reveals a positive outlook on the economy, offers his opinions on bias in the media, and also includes chapters on Donald Rumsfeld, affirmative action, and the values instilled in him by his mother and father.Ferguson's pride in his country, in his religious beliefs, and in his choices reflects his vision of the American dream. He is informed and determined to make a difference. Youthful as he is, he has a unique perspective not only on America and its history, but also on current events and issues. You may applaud his opinions or perhaps you will disagree with them. But for those of you who are angered by this book, Ferguson instructs: "Don't just get mad. Do something about it."

Grandma Gatewood's Walk: The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian Trail
Grandma Gatewood's Walk: The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian Trail
Emma Gatewood told her family she was going on a walk and left her small Ohio hometown with a change of clothes and less than two hundred dollars. The next anybody heard from her, this genteel, farm-reared, sixty-seven-year-old great-grandmother had walked 800 miles along the 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail. By September 1955 she stood atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin, sang “America, the Beautiful,” and proclaimed, “I said I’ll do it, and I’ve done it.”            Driven by a painful marriage, Grandma Gatewood not only hiked the trail alone, she was the first person—man or woman—to walk it twice and three times. At age seventy-one, she hiked the 2,000-mile Oregon Trail. Gatewood became a hiking celebrity, and appeared on TV with Groucho Marx and Art Linkletter. The public attention she brought to the trail was unprecedented. Her vocal criticism of the lousy, difficult stretches led to bolstered maintenance, and very likely saved the trail from extinction.            Author Ben Montgomery interviewed surviving family members and hikers Gatewood met along the trail, unearthed historic newspaper and magazine articles, and was given full access to Gatewood’s own diaries, trail journals, and correspondence. Grandma Gatewood’s Walk shines a fresh light on one of America’s most celebrated hikers.

"Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know...": A Lawyer’s Defence of Adventist Belief and Practice
"Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know...": A Lawyer’s Defence of Adventist Belief and Practice
"I love Iowa. And, look, I don’t have to say it, I’m Presbyterian. Can you believe it? Nobody believes I’m Presbyterian. I’m Presbyterian. I’m Presbyterian. I’m Presbyterian. Boy, that’s down the middle of the road folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know" - Donald Trump.The Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA or Adventist) is now the fifth largest Christian denomination in the world. Yet it must be one of the most misunderstood. If Adventists aren’t being confused with door-knocking bicycle missionaries from the Church of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) they are being mistaken for Baptists, Jews or some doomsday cult. It is also often said, quite wrongly, that Adventists refuse blood transfusions, a case of mistaken identity with Jehovah’s Witnesses – a totally different denomination. Despite being the religion of 2016 US Presidential candidate Dr Ben Carson and Hacksaw Ridge war hero Desmond Doss, Adventism remains largely a mystery to many.Looking at and beyond the proof-texts, this book surveys the major historical and theological themes that underpin this very different brand of Christianity, with its emphasis on: Sabbath-keeping (Saturday worship), kosher food laws (no pork or shellfish), conditional immortality (subjective non-existence immediately after death), great controversy (cosmic war), free will (no Calvinistic predestination), contemporary spiritual gifts (including prophecy), and the critical importance of eschatology (end-time beliefs).As a government lawyer who also studied theology at an Anglican (Episcopalian) seminary, Ferguson attempts to unravel this case of mistaken identity. Embracing the insults and arguments of critics and turning them on their heads, he explains core Adventist beliefs in some non-traditional ways.
