Diary: Water-cooler monitor

What topics have the industry been discussing this week?


Increasing commercial minutage should be filed 3 hrs 21 mins

under "C" for "crap idea". It would bring down

prices in general, erasing any advantage for ITV. Duh.

How gutted must M&C Saatchi be that its 51 mins 12 secs

new-business hound Judy Mitchem is leaving,

especially having forked out for her two recent

maternity-leave periods?

Which newspaper boss is Andrew McGuinness 1 hr 32 mins

courting? Reports of him lunching The Daily

Telegraph's Katie Vanneck were wrong. It was

actually News International's Andrew Mullins.

Speaking of lunching newspaper clients, Garry Lace 12 mins 2 secs

and Camilla Rhodes have been seen sharing Ivy fare.

Expect to see Lowe on News Group's shortlist.
