Park was a producer, director, and NBC journalist. This May 1956 article states that Park will become the executive producer of a new intellectual variety show called "Telescope."

In December 1962, Park married author and screenwriter Jacqueline Rosen in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Ben Park died on April 17, 1996 in New York City. He was 75. Jacqueline died on January 17, 2018 at age 92. Her obituary (linked below) incorrectly provides a 1995 year of death.
