"The quality of the people, and the company that one chooses to go to war for are just as important as the yearning for a great competitive challenge.” said Thomas, “As soon as I met Keith Lawless, I realized we would do big things together. I'm so pumped and excited to partner with Keith, CMG CHR format boss JJ Rice, and reuniting with CMG Sr. VP of Programming Steve Smith, whom I have known for three decades, in implementing a high level cluster growth strategy as well developing and curating these key brands for CMG Tampa."
