Laser’s satellite and cable division, headed by Andy Hawkins, will take

on national advertising and sponsorship sales for Channel One, the

Performance Channel, Asianet and the national sales contract for the

UK’s largest cable operator, Cable & Wireless Communications. The

channels will sit alongside Laser’s existing cable and satellite client,

Granada Sky Broadcasting.

business on behalf of the channel owners.



Simon Lynds, the chief executive of Katz, said: ’The marketplace holds a

lot of opportunities for exploiting the experience we’ve gained in cable

and our expertise in airtime sales will complement Laser’s service.’
