Randall Abrahams announced as the CEO of Primedia Broadcasting




Broadcaster Randall Abrahams has been announced as the new CEO of Primedia Broadcasting.

The star is a former judge on Idols and he has been able to dominate his talents in the media over the years as he has been credited for having turned around SABC commercial radio stations and the launch of the country’s first-ever youth radio station, YFM.

Primedia Broadcasting comprises five of South Africa’s premier content and broadcasting platforms – 702 and 947 in Gauteng, as well as Cape Talk and KFM in the Western Cape.

Primedia Group CEO Jonathan Procter says the group is excited to appoint a business leader who not only focuses on the bottom line, but also encourages creativity and embraces transformation.

“Randall has previously served on various regulatory bodies such as the South African Standards Authority, the NAB and the Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA) among other public service contributions. His creative mindset and his business acumen are perfectly aligned with our vision and purpose,” said Procter.

About his appointment, Abrahams said, “I am pleased to return to a swiftly evolving broadcasting landscape and I’m very excited to join the Primedia Group. Primedia remains at the forefront of both content creation and distribution with a drive for continued innovation. Working under Jonathan’s leadership alongside a team of experienced marketers and creatives is an exhilarating prospect, and I aim to bring my combination of experience and innovative ideas to the table”.

Abrahams takes over from Geraint Crwys-Williams who was acting in the role and has since left the company.
