Thomas Named Beasley/Las Vegas OM

Former Entercom/St. Louis OM & Top 40 KNOU PD Cat Thomas has joined Beasley/Las Vegas as OM for the cluster that includes Country KCYE. It is a return to the market for Thomas, who previously spent 28 years with then-CBS Radio/Las Vegas, rising to VP/Programming and serving as PD of Top 40 KLUC for 20 years. “Cat’s knowledge of the market and leadership experience will be invaluable to our success across the breadth of our station group,” says VP/MM Peter Burton. In 2016, Thomas joined Cumulus as VP/CHR & Hot AC (CAT 1/26/16) before transitioning to his most recent post in 2018. He exited Entercom as part of companywide cutbacks in September; reach him here.
