Radio City has announced that Abraham Thomas will take over as its CEO from Monday, 23 November 2015.
He has been with Hit FM since April this year in the capacity of CEO, according to multiple media reports.
Thomas succeeds Apurva Purohit, who was recently elevated as president of Jagran Group, which completed its acquisition of Radio City in June 2015. He will now report to Purohit.
“We couldn’t have got a better person than Abe to run Radio City. He is not only a highly experienced business manager but also extremely passionate about radio’s various facets – content, marketing and new distribution platforms like digital,” said Purohit.
She added, “Abe brings with him maturity and an outstanding ability to work with high quality teams which will only help take the culture of Radio City to greater heights.”
Thomas added, “With Radio City, Radio Mantra and the recently acquired new licenses, the group is strategically poised to become the leading radio player of the future.”
In a career spanning two decades, the former Red FM COO has also worked with Sony, Indian Express and MTV, besides turning entrepreneur with OneIndia.
