On Monday (11 July), RAC will become the headline partner of 'The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show', replacing British Gas, in a deal brokered by ZenithOptimedia. Activity, including in-show credits, sponsorship trails and in-show features, will communicate RAC's key message that breakdown cover is an essential part of a summer holiday.
Sky has signed up for the second year running as the sponsor of Absolute's Premier League live football commentary, which starts mid-July.
