Abraham Thomas quits Red FM

It is learnt that Abraham Thomas has quit Red FM as COO. Thomas had reportedly put in his papers three months ago and had been serving his notice period since then. No official confirmation from either Thomas or any Red FM official was forthcoming at the time of filing the report. However, industry sources close to the development have confirmed the news. It is also learnt that an internal mail on Thomas’s departure has been sent out to the Red FM staff. No announcement has been made so far on Thomas’ replacement.

It is further believed that Thomas has plans to float his own venture.

Thomas had begun his career in the print media with The Indian Express, where he worked his way up to the position of All-India Head of Ad Sales. Television soon beckoned him and he joined Sony Entertainment Network as Director - Sales for SET, MAX and AXN channels. He then moved to MTV Networks, where he headed the revenue function for MTV, Nickelodeon and Vh1.

Thomas joined Red FM as COO in March 2005. He believes that his strong background in revenue generation and his experience working with client brands helps him to drive their programming and marketing towards increased listener pleasure, while co-creating win-win marketing solutions for his clients. His vision has enabled Red FM move ‘beyond radio’ and on to Red Activ (activation), Red Mobile (content on multi-digital platforms) and Red Creativ (Creative Solutions for clients).
