August 24, 2005 -- JASON Flom didn't quit as co-chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records Group, as early reports characterized his departure — he was fired. Lyor Cohen, head of recorded music at Warner Music, handed Flom a press release detailing his "resignation" at LAX airport, telling him, "You're finished!" Flom has been replaced by archrival Craig Kallman, former co-chairman and COO at Atlantic, who assiduously cultivated Cohen, even vacationing with his boss at the Four Seasons resort on the Caribbean island of Nevis, a music business insider tells PAGE SIX's Tom Sykes. Flom, 44, is now thought to be taking a va cation in Aspen, and could not be reached, but he is said to be devastated by his sacking after devoting 26 years to Atlantic. Flom's exceptional A&R track record includes artists such as Sugar Ray, Kid Rock, Tori Amos, Simple Plan, Skid Row, Twisted Sister, Matchbox Twenty and the Corrs. Atlantic declined to comment.
