I've done an awful lot of political BTS for a long, long time. More than I care to admit. I've worked for people I am truthfully not proud to have worked for. (Even recently.) I've known a lot of radio people. They all - every one of them - have some sort of agenda.
Mark Belling in real life is exactly the Mark Belling you hear on the radio. I have never known a guy who takes more joy in claiming others' work as his own, or thinking he 'invented' some idea or political angle/concept that someone else had developed 8 months prior. He is Andrea Sachs in 'The Devil Wears Prada,' succumbing to Miranda Priestly; not recognizing that his fashion choices were pre-destined by more influential people, eons ago. He is a good talker. He's not a super-bright fellow.
In my 30 years of dealing with Wisconsin egos, there have been only a few people who were as big an asswipe in real life as they were on TV or radio. Mark Belling is absolutely one of those people. Take it for what it is worth.
