Podcast: Spanier, Beale and Wieser

Mark Read is promising "radical evolution" at WPP and the early signs are that the new chief executive could be more radical than expected.

Our newscast comes from the Groucho Club in Soho, where Campaign was staging a photo shoot with the great and the good of UK advertising ahead of the magazine's 50th birthday.

Brian Wieser, the senior analyst at Pivotal Research Group and Wall Street's go-to expert on the ad industry, joined global-editor-in-chief Claire Beale and global head of media Gideon Spanier to discuss Read's plans and WPP's financial outlook.
