Diary: Water-Cooler Monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?

THE TALK TIME SPENT

Rupert Howell's new job at ITV. Adland was a little 43 mins 4 secs
surprised, to say the least, at the appointment.
After all, Howell is polite, gracious and, well,
posh; all characteristics that a gritty ITV seems
not to have valued in the past.

Fallon's next Sony Bravia instalment. Will it live up 31 mins 22 secs
its predecessors?

Homebase. Well, it's at the AAR - all £20 million 9 mins 51 secs
of it. For now, the conversations are about cost, but
that's not stopping new-business directors around the
country putting its marketing department on their
respective speed dials.

Damon Collins' arrival at Rainey Kelly Campbell 11 mins 18 secs
Roalfe/Y&R: good casting.
