McCann London has been awarded the London Evening Standard’s London Live TV account; a task which will see them manage branding and communications for the launch of the new TV channel, dedicated to London and Londoners – expected to go live in early 2014.
The new London Live channel will broadcast to around 4.6 million homes and be run by Evening Standard Television, bringing together award-winning journalism and up-to-the-minute news and Information on the capital.
McCann London will work to promote and carefully position the new channel to create the right buzz in the lead up to, and surrounding, the launch.
