WPP, the world’s biggest advertising holding company, reported first-half revenues up 6.8% on a strong performance in North America, and CEO Martin Sorrell said he was still bullish on China despite the turmoil in the stock market.

Fabulous, wonderful, nothing could be better,'” Mr. Sorrell said during a conference call with investors. “The reality of course is different.”

Subway Taps BBDO as New Creative Agency


Subway has tapped Omnicom’s BBDO to handle its advertising after a review.

The Omnicom agency will replace Boston-based MMB, which has long handled Subway’s work. Other agencies involved in the review include Interpublic Group of Cos. shops the Martin Agency and McCann Erickson.

The agency change comes as the company is trying to rebound from an estimated 3% decline in U.S. sales last year, its first decline in years. It also comes after Subway’s longtime pitchman, Jared Fogle, was investigated by federal authorities in early July. Last week, Mr. Fogle said that he would plead guilty to child pronography and for paying for sex with minors.

In a Swipe at AT&T's New Bundle, Sprint Offers DirecTV Customers Free Phone for a Year


Just as AT&T is trying to draw consumers closer with packages bundling its phone service and DirecTV, a rival is working to keep allegiances divided: Sprint is offering DirecTV customers one year free if they switch their phone service to the company.

The offer, which is good for up to five lines, includes unlimited text messages, voice calls and 2 gigabytes of data. The promotion starts Friday and goes through Sept. 30. After the year is up, customers will be placed on Sprint’s $50 per month plan for a single line. Plans for five lines go up to $180.

“DirecTV customers love their TV service — but they shouldn’t have to settle for AT&T wireless,” said Sprint CMO Kevin Crull in a statement. “Why not build the perfect bundle by combining with Sprint wireless?”
