Hispanic Radio Podcast: Learning Lessons From Lotus


Lotus Communications President Jim Kalmenson is widely known across the West Coast of the U.S. as the leader of a family-run business with a diverse portfolio of radio stations that includes Classic Rock and Active Rock FMs in Tucson, a Classic Rocker in Las Vegas, and a Farsi-language format targeting Persians across Southern California.

“It’s always nice to have a conversation about our fun industry,” says Kalmenson, who spoke with Radio + Television Business Report Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson for a Hispanic Radio Podcast installment that touches on one very important thing for all radio stations to consider when signing an advertising contract with a client.
