Ken Magos
Host and Series Creator


Ken brings more than 30 years’ experience as a performer, director, and producer to his multiple roles on this project.  His own performance career spans film, television, opera and musical theater throughout the US and abroad.


Following his corporate career as an infrastructure development specialist working with global clients, he now serves as President of South Mountain TheaterWorks and Television Productions, a theatrical and TV production company he founded in 2005.


His own passion for history (and a difficult-to-read roadside marker near his NJ home) provided the inspiration for Drive By History.  His innate curiosity about the people, places, and events that make up our shared legacy, and the experts that keep those stories alive, truly help to make this destination television.
