It seems as if Randall Abrahams has seen him being appointed as a new CEO. He has been appointed the Chief Executive Officer of Primedia Broadcasting. No doubt he is securing the bag. Premedia owns several big stations, such as 947 and 702 radio stations in Gauteng. It also owns KFM and Cape Talk in Western Cape and nationally EWN outlets.
