Abraham Thomas, COO of Red FM, has put in his papers. It is learnt that Abraham had decided to leave the company three months back and has been serving the notice period since then.

Talking about his future course of action, Thomas, aka Abe, says, "As of now, I'm taking a short break and will then evaluate a few options, including entrepreneurial."

Thomas has been associated with the radio station prior to its inception, from March 2005. Armed with more than 17 years of experience, he has also worked with print and television companies.

Thomas started his career with The Indian Express and left the company as the all-India head of ad sales. Later, he moved to the television industry and was with Sony Entertainment Network as director -- sales for SET, MAX and AXN channels. He then joined MTV Networks, where he was the head of the revenue function for MTV, Nickelodeon (now Nick) and Vh1.

Red FM and Sun TV Networks' radio station, S FM had merged in August this year, as a result of which S FM was re-branded as Red FM. All 38 stations of S FM -- comprising 23 stations of South Asia FM (SAFL), 14 stations of Kal Radio and one station of Udaya FM -- had undergone a change in identity. The re-branded Red FM has a total of 41 stations in its kitty.
