GlaxoSmithKline shifts OTC media

GlaxoSmithKline said it will shift media buying and planning for its North American OTC brands to WPP's MediaCom by the end of February. MediaCom already handles buying and planning tasks for the firm's prescription drug business.

Media duties on the OTC business—which includes brands like Panadol, Aquafresh, Lucozade and Nicorette—had been split among Havas' MPG, MediaCom, Publicis' Optimedia and Campbell Mithun.

It's not the first time in recent years that GSK has upended its marketing vendors. Last year the company moved all of its professional advertising from WPP agencies to IPG ones.
