Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Spotted having lunch: Thinkbox's Tess Alps and 12 mins 56 secs
ITV's Michael Grade. Maybe they were talking about
the marketing of commercial TV. Or maybe they were
talking about Ian McCulloch's old job.

Martin Brooks' departure from Zulu. It has been a 1 hour 19 secs
matter of when, not if, for some time now. All that's
left in question is who will his partners be? The
money is still on Andy Sandoz and Patrick Griffiths.

Steve Barton's honesty. Good for him - he's 8 mins 17 secs
quit his start-up because he needs something better
paid in order to cover his kids' school fees.

So, Premier is reviewing its media accounts. What's 43 mins 29 secs
the betting creative will follow? Its haphazard roster
could do with a tidy up.
