The AAR's Sharon Osbourne.

My age.

My friends and my car.

Lowdown

Adland was left a bit confused this year as to what Glazer's role will be now that the bulk of Martin Jones' responsibilities have been handed to the AAR managing director, Paul Phillips. But most will be hoping that the industry's mother-figure will continue to keep as close to agencies as she has done in the past.
