Lotus Communications 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.

But, it is Lotus’ Spanish-language stations and their performance that has led Kalmenson to receive the 2018 Medallas de Cortez Award as Broadcaster of the Year.

The honor was presented to Kalmenson on Tuesday evening at the 2018 Hispanic Radio Conference, which concludes Wednesday in Doral, Fla. Lotus’ stations across the West are comprised of several Spanish-language radio stations, including key ESPN Deportes Radio affiliate KWKW-AM 1330 in Los Angeles.
