Media

TargetSUMMARY

Telecom giant Sprint has selected Horizon Media as its new media agency following a review that began in January. The account has been handled by Mediavest | Spark, part of Publicis Groupe, which participated in the review.

Sprint spent nearly $700 million in ads in 2016, according to Kantar Media, which was about $85 million less than it spent in 2015.

According to its latest annual report, the phone service provider has cut its total advertising costs by $200 million for each of its last three fiscal years -- from $1.5 billion in fiscal 2015 to $1.1 billion in fiscal 2017, which ended in March.

The Sprint media review follows a creative review that the company held last year, when it selected Droga5 as its creative AOR.

Sprint made headlines last year when it began featuring former Verizon spokesman Paul Marcarelli in its advertising. Marcarelli did the Verizon ads where he stated the now familiar “Can You Hear Me Now?” line for several years.

Horizon declined to comment, referring queries to the client.

Roger Solé, Sprint chief marketing officer stated, “Sprint is excited to partner with Horizon Media as its media agency of record. Horizon Media’s innovative ideas and dynamic approach using traditional and emerging channels is a perfect fit for Sprint as we continue on our transformation. The agency’s unique and fresh perspective will support Sprint in an extremely competitive and continually evolving industry.”
