Video Networks drops Frank PR

Video Networks has parted company with Frank PR after less than three months because of a ‘personality issue’, according to its head of PR Nick Southall.

It has hired the Braben Company to handle corporate communications and trade PR for its video-on-demand and broadband internet service HomeChoice.

Frank was hired in April to handle consumer and trade PR. Video Networks has taken the consumer PR task in-house but kept the trade and corporate briefs outsourced.

A spokesman said: ‘Our ideas didn’t correspond with some of those being put forward by Frank and it was felt we didn’t need it anymore.’

The move follows a relaunch of the brand in May.

Southall joined two months ago from Nickelodeon where he held a similar role.
