Benito Nardone Cetrulo (November 22, 1906 – March 25, 1964) was a Uruguayan journalist and political figure.
Nardone was born at Montevideo, the son of an Italian immigrant.
For many years he was a popular radio commentator at CX 4 Radio Rural. His political prominence came about after his long established reputation as a radio personality.
He was strongly identified with rural affairs. Prior to assuming the Presidency, he was seen as politically close to Domingo Bordaberry and his son Juan María Bordaberry, both of them heavily involved with a Ruralist affairs organization led by Nardone.

Nardone was himself succeeded as President by Eduardo Víctor Haedo, also a Blanco Party colleague.
