In 1984, Ben was promoted to the position of Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, a position that also included the responsibilities of department spokesperson. It was a historic moment since it marked the first time that a reporter who had covered the State Department had been known as the department’s spokeswoman.

New York City is where Kalb spent his whole childhood. After earning a Bachelor of Social Science degree from City College of New York, Bernard went on to get a Master of Arts degree from Harvard University. Bernard is a graduate of both institutions.
