Now entering its Fourth Year, The Mentors Radio program expands broadcast into the greater Dallas-Forth Worth region beginning January 4, 2020, on the Salem Radio Network.
The Mentors Radio Show features three ethical and successful CEO hosts—Tom Loarie, Ric Brutocao, and John Phillips—who engage in lively, in-depth interviews with top ethical business leaders from a wide variety of fields and industries.
Listeners discover first-hand business insights and learnings, challenges faced, solutions, career experience, strategic advice and practical mentoring.
This unique and popular business program especially showcases the profound impact of consistent, good ethics in work, business and life.
But you won’t find any lofty platitudes here. Instead listeners hear real-world experience, true life and career stories.
“What you guys are doing is incredible! It’s real-world mentoring,” says Tim Strader, founder and chairman of Starpointe Ventures, a real estate development and entitlement company.
“I taught for eight years at the University of California Irvine. I had 30 people in class,” Strader continues. “These were second year graduate MBA students getting ready to go out into the market place. They were thirsting for real life, first-hand experience and insights rather than more academic strategies. They wanted real-world examples they could relate to, versus economic theory. What you are doing on the show is a tremendous asset for those who want to succeed in business and in life.”
In its four years, guest mentors include global advisor to CEOs of the top companies in the world, Ram Charan; Rand Sperry; Ken Strottman; tech guru Steve Garner; Jay Elliot (Steve Jobs’ mentor); Suniel Jain, NMD; seasoned China equities investment expert, Dan McClory, attorney Michael Flynn; young business professional and stage 4 cancer survivor Megan Metcalfe; Sprint turn-around CEO Dan Hesse; USAF fighter pilots and brothers, Brigadier General David Smith, USAF and Lt. Col. Peter Smith, ret. USAF; Chaplain to San Quentin Death Row and to two professional sports teams, Rev. Earl Smith; and Forbes’ publisher Rich Karlgaard, to name a few.
The three hosts themselves are also stand-out ethical business CEOs, from three very different industries, who themselves have been mentors to many throughout their careers.
The Mentors Radio Host Ric Brutocao is managing partner of Venture Communication Corporation, former president of the luxury appliance company DACOR, founder of a thriving tech firm now sold, and co-founder of a life-saving nonprofit—Life Savers of America—that is now absorbed and run by the National Institutes of Health, among other ventures..
Host Tom Loarie is CEO and co-founder of Bryologyx, an emerging biotech company focused on increasing immunotherapy response and relapse rates for cancer patients. Loarie’s CEO expertise includes bringing more than 20 medical products to market, some of them life-saving.
Host John Phillips and his wife, Mary, co-founded Associated Crafts—a stained glass company that grew so solidly and ethically, and so fast, that within 15 years he was approached by one of the most respected legacy stained glass firms in the nation to acquire their company. He accepted, resulting in what is now one of the largest stained glass companies in the world, Associated Crafts & Willet-Hauser.
The expansion from the radio airwaves of the greater San Francisco Bay Area and nine surrounding counties, including Silicon Valley, and now into the greater Dallas region radio airwaves opens up exciting new opportunities.
