In the LIMA, OH business community, LES RAU was known as a hard-nosed negotiator who almost always got his way. But among his friends and employees, he was the guy who could never say no.
LIMAOHIO.COM reports that RAU died FRIDAY at St. Rita's Medical Center. He was 83.
RAU is best know for his nearly 30 rein as head of LIMA BROADCASTING, longtime owner of WIMA and WIMT radio stations. He began with the stations in the early 1970s, near the time the popular AM station was forced to split from the television station that would become WLIO.
