Lee signed on way back in October of 1971 and within a year was promoted
to Sales Manager. With talent complemented by motivation, he tripled the
"progressive underground" radio's sales in only 18 months.
In 1973, he was again promoted, this time to General Manager. Under
Lee's guidance, his team made KWFM the most listened to radio station
in Tucson in 1979.
Lee enjoyed a long career at KWFM, but when Sandusky sold the station
in 1983, he decided it was time change. "Tony Brooks brought me to Denver
and KBPI radio, the market leader.
"Fortune and fame led me to New Orleans with Price Communications as
Gulf Coast Manger of Sales. Until the oil market crashed, it was a great
job in an exciting city.
"My next stop was building a new station in Albuquerque, CHR KNMQ.
The Q hit the ground running out of the fall book with a 9.0 share!
What made this even more exciting was we were on the air for only 6
of the 13 weeks of the survey. After 3 years in Albuquerque Craig Cochran
called and I was on my way back to Denver to NEWS TALK KNUS, ironically
a Sandusky station.
