LM COMMUNICATIONS Broadcast Media Group and owner LYNN MARTIN are celebrating its 30-year anniversary in the radio business. Based in LEXINGTON, KY, LM has five radio stations in LEXINGTON, two in CHARLESTON, SC, five in CHARLESTON, WV, and sales agreements with two other stations.
LM COMMUNICATIONS is the only locally owned broadcaster LEXINGTON listeners turn to for music, news and sports. “Contrary to popular belief there is great value in being a locally owned business,” LYNN MARTIN said. “Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions. Local decisions by local people – it’s the only way to be successful.
“It’s important to remember that every brand isn’t for everybody, and everybody isn’t for every brand," he continued. “In other words, do what locally owned businesses do best and focus on a niche — and then own that niche. I like to think that we own our niche. I’m blessed to have met so many incredible people in my career that believed in LM COMMUNICATIONS and our role as the local broadcasting group.”
“I absolutely love what I do,” MARTIN concluded. “I get tremendous enjoyment out of putting music and news through a box that doesn’t cost the consumer anything; then making a business out of it. Our success is a direct reflection of our employees. Surrounding myself with quality people has been key to this company’s success. I want LM COMMUNICATIONS to be the place everyone wants to work.”
