We are here with previous guest Jonathan Bentley as he brings on a colleague of his, a legend in multi-cam television industry, Chris Brock. In this first part of the podcast, Chris talks about his beginnings and how he grew up in the industry.


Chris Brock chose to make a career in television in 1970. While working his way through Texas Tech University as chief news photographer as KAMC television in Lubbock, Texas, he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and a Master of Arts Degree in Telecommunications. During a four year hiatus from television, Brock served on the Eagle Nest, New Mexico, city council and served a term as mayor.

He returned to television to take a job as production manager for Clearwater Teleproductions in Dallas where he was instrumental in the building of two video production trucks, a first in the Dalllas area. Clearwater clients included CBS, NBC, ABC, ESPN, The Nashvile Network, HBO, and Cinemax for which the company provided facilities for sports and entertainment programming. After the company was sold to Unitel Productions, Brock went freelance and created a production company specializing in turnkey sports programming and corporate production. Clients include National Geographic Television, TED Talks, ESPN, FOX Sports, CW Networks, WFAA television, and the Winstar World Casino among others.
