Steve Pollak

steve pollakSteve graduated with a B.A. in Radio, Television, and Film from California State University at Long Beach, at that time, working in radio was the furthest thing from his mind.

For almost 8 years he developed many “one of a kind” marketing programs for CBS Radio Los Angeles at KFWB, KNX, KTWV, and KLSX-FM Talk. He was one of the first marketing salespersons who developed programs in a single market selling a cluster of stations and using multiple promotional partners to drive increased results and ROIs for his clients.

Before there were Podcasts, Steve developed the concept of “hybrid programming” with “Original Sponsored Programs”. He created high quality radio programs for the retail chain, “A Touch of Romance”, Expedia, E-Trade, as well as numerous other companies airing in multiple markets across the U.S & Canada.
