One very important issue to keep in mind is that Brock seems to be more concerned about the amount of recognition that he did or didn't receive, than the overall welfare of the station. I worked at WUTK as a lab teacher, underwriting sales person, promotions person, bill collector, commercial producer, accounts receivable clerk, music organizer, entering music into the computer person, DJ, demographic researcher, sports board operator, and even a floor sweeper. I did it because I wanted to gain more practical experience ... but also because I love teaching and helping students, and I love the station. I also did what the station needed to have done in order to make it successful. Not only what I wanted to do or felt like doing. The experience helped me tremendously, and I learned from Benny, the students, and the experience. I was not (and still am not) worried about how often my name was mentioned in articles in the paper and who claims to have done the most work.
I definitely do not take my experience for granted and think that my experience was owed to me or it was my right to have this experience. Benny does give credit to the students in the article and rightfully. Jay and Brock did do a lot of hard work at the station along with most of the rest of the students who are there and were there (Michael Grider deserves a honorable mention). The thing is ... if the station was not there, then they (he) would not even had the opportunity to get the experiences that are being complained about. It took a lot of hard work and important connections (that only Benny has) to get the station back on track. Plus, he did not just come into the station knowing what to do, he had to learn from Benny. So he should have some respect for this. No one will succeed in any job (especially one in the music / entertainment / journalism / advertising / electronic media industry where there more people wanting jobs than job openings) if you act like you know everything and show disrespect for your superiors.
