1. In first 3 quarters of 2007, how much money was spent to buy advertising in all the following media combined: TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, the Internet, billboards and those annoying inserts in the Sunday paper?
Answer: C) $108 billion – ok, maybe it’s just me, but it still seems like a lot of money. And remember, that doesn’t include 4th quarter, which is normally more than quarters 1-3. For comparison, total 2006 spending was just shy of $150 billion.

1a) Extra credit international question: In 2006, the U.S. ad market was what % of the global ad market? (answer below)

2. For the same period (Jan-Sept 2007) match the media to the appropriate % of the total:
1) Magazines B) 20%
2) Internet D) 8%
3) Radio E) 7%
4) Newspapers C) 18%
5) TV A) 43% (The other numbers are tricky, but if you didn’t guess TV was the biggest, you might want to consider some media lit’racy classes)
6) Outdoor (billboards) + Inserts F) 4%
