At no part in my response did I take anything away from Benny. I even mentioned the "tremendous amount of time and work he put in at the station", but you can turn this into a student (me particularly) vs. Benny all you want.
The only thing I am responding to is that fact that students get no love from Metropulse or any other local media outlets when it comes to WUTK.
So gripe all you want about how many more hours Benny puts in than anyone else at the station, then take a step back and realize the one difference between the time Benny puts in down there and the time the students put in down there is that ONE gets paid and the others don't.
In response to Tony Farina's response, everyone down there gathered a lot from working at the station. My experience was great. I was taught many things from Benny, I was also taught many things from Michael Grieder, Jay Lewis, Tony Farina and several other people down there. I wouldn't take it back for the world, it was an all around great experience and I don't disagree that the station wouldn't be there without Benny, but when you have dozens of students putting in hours at the station and 2 or 3 putting in upwards of 30 hours a week at the station, they should get some recognition as well.
So warp it all you want into taking away from Benny's work down there, that's just not the case. The students bust their asses down at the station and get no articles written about them, face time in MetroPulse or any kind of Monetary reward for their hard work and Benny gets it on a regular basis.
It's just nice, as a person who puts in a lot of time at the station for free to get some sort of reward outside of experience. It doesn't make you an Ego maniac to want to be mentioned in an article about the radio station you spend your free time helping win Best Of MetroPulse 3 years in a row. If you are gonna mention Benny why not mention his underlings who, believe it or not, help the station A LOT.
Also- It's the best radio station in town. It's good to see that it's getting the recognition it deserves.
