but when I read this piece about the staff he hired for his new show, it made me wonder whether or not that is true. Most of these people have worked with him before, and many of them have worked with him for many years.
Take it from someone who was part of a show staff. You may work with a jerk once, but there's no way you'd do it again unless you were absolutely desperate or they were offering you a TON of money. These people were already employed, and Current isn't paying anyone a ton of money.
