All Response Media has won the pounds 1.5 million media planning and

buying for Haysbridge (UK) after a four-way pitch. ARM beat the

incumbent, All Media Services, Collins Bridges Media and Senior King to

the business.



CLT UK Radio has taken advantage of last year’s changes in cross-media

ownership rules by increasing its share in Talk Radio to a controlling

stake. CLT also controls Atlantic 252 and has a stake in Channel 5. Talk

Radio is the UK’s fifth largest commercial radio station.



CIA Group has finally settled its debts with Laser Sales by making cash

payments to the value of pounds 1.8 million to the ITV sales house’s

contractors, despite the fact that Chris Ingram, CIA’s chief executive

(left), originally insisted that no cheques would be written. The

payment will constitute a one-off charge to CIA’s profit and loss

account in 1996.



Jacqui Elliott, the advertisement director of the health and beauty

magazine, Top Sante, has been promoted to publisher. Elliot has been

with the title since its launch and was previously a member of the team

that launched the Independent. Top Sante recorded a circulation of

162,567 from January to June 1996, according to the ABC, making it the

best-selling title in its sector.



Emap Metro has acquired the dance music magazine, Mixmag, from the

independent publishers, DMC. Mixmag, which launched as a black-and-white

DJ newsletter 14 years ago, now has a circulation of more than 80,000.

It joins a portfolio of music titles at Emap, which includes Smash Hits,

Q, Mojo and Kerrang!



The Big Issue in Scotland has sold out for the third month in a row,

keeping claimed sales over the 100,000 mark. The title has an ABC of

76,477, but the title’s circulation leap has followed last year’s

decision to move from a fortnightly to a weekly publication.



Michael Toulmin, former chief executive and now chairman of United

Provincial Newspapers, has resigned from the board of United News and

Media. Stephen Grabiner, the executive director of United, took over

Toulmin’s role as chief executive of UPN late last year.



The December ABC figures have brought bad news for the Times, which

appeared to lose the readers it picked up late last year with its

Eurostar promotion. The Times showed the biggest drop of any national

newspaper, down 14.06 per cent month on month. The Sunday Times, too,

fell by double figures, down 10.36 per cent. Meanwhile, the Telegraph,

with its November ABC reinstated, was able to celebrate its highest

circulation since October 1988, up 2.77 per cent month on month. The

Telegraph and Financial Times were the only two papers to report a

month-on-month sales increase.



United News and Media in the UK is to form a joint venture with the

French media group, Havas, to offer specialist broadcasting research and

consultancy across Europe. As part of the deal, Havas has bought 50 per

cent of Paradigm Worldwide, the research arm of United’s TV sales house,

TSMS.



The Times this week published the largest appointments section in its

history (Thursday, 16 January), comprising 36 pages. It follows on from

the publication on Sunday of the largest ever Sunday Times appointments

supplement at 32 pages.



Correction. In last week’s Media Forum (Campaign, 10 January), Christine

Walker, the chief executive of Zentih Media, was quoted as saying that

she expected Channel 5 to take pounds 180 million in revenue during

1997. The figure should have been pounds 98 million.
