Abraham Thomas is the new Radio City CEO

MUMBAI: As of Monday, 23 November 2015, Abraham Thomas will join Radio City as CEO, after serving seven months as CEO for Hit FM. Thomas will replace Apurva Purohit, who was recently elevated to President of the Jagran Group after it acquired Radio City earlier in the year.

Commenting on the new appointment Purohit said, “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. Over the last decade we have built Radio City into a market leader in the FM industry, as well as a Great Place to Work across industries. 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, who previously served as Red FM COO, said, “I am very excited to be part of Radio City - India's leading radio brand and most preferred media employer, at this critical juncture as the organization expands its footprint to become the leading radio network in the country. 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 his new role, Thomas will be reporting to Purohit.

He brings to the radio station over 20 years of leadership experience, having worked with organisations like Indian Express, Sony, MTV, and Red FM, and is also well versed with media platforms like Broadcasting (TV and Radio), Print, Online and Mobile.
