Shocking News!

As I was driving to work today listening to 97.3 The Sky FM (as I do most mornings) I was shocked when I heard a news story about Terry Bellows. I used to work with him at K-Country and he has been working in the mornings with Mr. Bob for years. Supposedly he's been indicted on kiddie porn charges. I was aghast about this and quickly switched over to K-Country and sure enough Mr. Bob was all alone. There was no mention of Terry at all. When I got to work I checked out the K-Country website and it was the same story there. It's like he'd been erased from memory.

Considering how I worked for Mr. Bob while in K-Country's employ I got a little sense of satisfaction knowing how much trouble this would cause him not just in having to get a new co-host but Terry RAN that morning show. Now Mr. Bob will actually have to do some work for a change on his own! Knowing Terry I must say I'm shocked. He's one of the nicest people you'd ever meet and whether or not this is true my heart does go out to him as regardless of the outcome, I think it's safe to say his career in broadcasting is over.

Of course when my DH heard the news he called me and said "now that there's an opening over there again why don't you call Mr. Bob"? He quickly rethought this and took it back. I would much rather be poor and happy than to make good money and work for someone who treats you like crud and micro-manages you to death. Now, don't get me wrong, I miss radio every day but I do NOT miss working for Mr. Bob. He was so disrespectful of me and only cared about himself. I was the "night" jock and knowing this he would wake me up nearly every morning yelling at me about this or that, never taking into consideration that I may have been asleep. Not to mention that he didn't feel like my "home" time was valuable to me. Every day I was in fear of what he'd get mad at me for this time and started not answering the phone when it rang for fear he was calling to harass me about something else he heard or saw. I think the power of being PD went to his head as when I worked as his morning show co-host in New York he was never this rude to me. I enjoyed working with him and looked forward to work every day I was his co-host but boy did that change when I started working FOR him. Heck, he has gone through so many co-hosts and such it's crazy. I don't know how poor Terry put up with it for all these years.

So as I am shocked by this news, again, I can't help but smile thinking about all the work that Mr. Bob will find himself doing now. Of course, I guess I shouldn't smile too much as he'll probably over-work poor Lewis, Red and Doug with all of Terry's workload. He'll continue to work 5 hour days and make everyone else work 12. Not to mention he'll still take off every Christmas and New Years while making everybody else work those days. Bitter? Yep, I think I am, but I have a right to be... I had the #1 ratings and was sacked. People still see me in Wal-Mart and such and tell me how much they miss me and that they won't listen to K-Country anymore since I'm not there. Not that I'm trying to toot my own horn, but I believe I was better than Leia and Delilah. I guess the company thought their money was better spent on billboards than on a #1 rated host...

Terry, I hope these alligations are not true and if they are, I hope you know that I'll be praying for you.
