"I work in "corporate" radio here in Knoxville. I'm sorry you had such a bad experienceat the River, but I think you might just be a little sour with your situation." The River was a great experience. My comment about it was "tounge in cheek" The only thing that sucked was Citadel buying it and firing nearly everyone with the exception of a couple sales folks and Joe. (Love Joe, glad he got to keep his job) Then they ran it into the ground. Now 100.3 is a right-wing mouthpiece. Yay!! The other station I worked at West 105.3, just couldn't afford the salary. I have no ill feelings of any of the time I spent on commercial radio, it was a blast! Where else can you get paid to talk every 15-20 minutes (about music), go to free shows, run up free bar tabs, meet bands, etc. etc.? But there's no way I'm ever going back, regardless of whatever salary I was offered. At any rate, again, the students are a big part of the station, but without Benny, the station would most likely not even exist anymore. It was on the verge of not existing. I believe there were people interested in buying it and turning it into a Christian station. I'm not 100% on that, but I do recall hearing that as well. So if Benny hadn't turned the thing around, those students that came after Benny arrived would have never even had the opportunities they had. As far as any problems Benny may have had with certain students (no references, etc.)I have no idea.
