CampaignLive, Campaign’s award-winning website, is launching a
regular series of live interactive interviews and has signed up the WPP
chief executive, Martin Sorrell, as one of the first subjects.
The live chats are scheduled to be monthly but, to coincide with
Campaign’s 30th birthday celebrations, there will be three during
September when CampaignLive will be free for all to access.
The Sorrell interview will take place on 18 September, Campaign’s 30th
birthday, at 10am. The man in overall control of the J. Walter Thompson,
Ogilvy & Mather and MindShare networks will be in conversation with
Campaign’s editor, Stefano Hatfield. Anyone with an internet connection
will be able to not only watch the interview live as it happens but join
in the debate.
The first interview takes place on 4 September with Eamonn Wilmott, the
managing director of the UK’s leading new-media production company,
Online Magic. The third interview will take place on 24 September and
will be with a senior figure from the media industry.
The interviews will take place in a new area of the site called
’TalkBack’, which will be located on channel four of CampaignLive’s ten
In addition, TalkBack will feature a debating area where visitors will
be able to post their comments or start new topics of discussion.
From October, the interviews will run once a month every month and will
concentrate on the hot issues in advertising, media and marketing.
