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

channels.



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.
