Lotus Communications Corp. is one of the largest privately owned Radio Station Groups in the United States. It was founded in 1962 by Howard A. Kalmenson, with the purchase of KWKW, one of Los Angeles' original Spanish language radio stations. In 2012, Howard was awarded the Medallas de Cortez Lifetime Achievement Award from Radio Ink honoring his long record of dedication and commitment to Spanish-language radio.
Lotus currently owns and operates a total of 29 radio stations in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Texas. The formats consist of 14 English, 14 Spanish, and 1 Farsi.
Lotus also owns two low-power television stations in: Phoenix, Arizona; and Houston, Texas, as well as three e-commerce sites under it's subsidiary, Lotus Internet Corp.
We are very proud of being able to maintain the Company as a privately owned enterprise, providing a "home" for over 400 full-time and part-time employees.
