Once again Metro Pulse has given Benny Smith all the credit for work done at the station. While working for him I realized he puts in a tremendous amount of work at the station, but what you fail to realize or acknowledge is that there are other people down at the station who bust their butts on a daily basis and get no recognition at all.
How about Jay Lewis, who was nominated for two awards at the College MEDIA Journal awards? He worked at the station for 3 years, dedicating hours upon hours at the station to keep it running a long with Benny and several other people, no mention of anyone but Benny.
It's a college/independent/student ran station. Give Benny props, but don't fail to mention the people that make it possible for Benny to keep his job. If you think that Benny is the only reason that WUTK is operational and very successful you are either willfully ignorant or you just haven't done your research.
So please, next time you decide to do a story on WUTK, don't fail to mention the "little" people who help keep the station running and winning awards. Because it is a COLLEGE station and its employees are 99.99% COLLEGE STUDENTS, if you don't believe that, call the promoters that send all their music and schwagg to the station and ask them who they talk to on a daily basis. I can tell you right now, it's students.
So please do some research and make sure you let Knoxville know that the best station in town isn't run by one person, It's ran by a great group of people/students.
