Covid live: Germany reports new record daily cases; WHO envoy advises minimising international travel

ITV, the UK's television network, is poised to record its best year in terms of advertising revenues in its 66 years. Businesses are investing money in marketing to help drive post-pandemic recovery. Content like the Euro 2020 tournament was a huge hit with viewers.

According to the UK's largest free-to-air broadcaster, it is performing better than ever in 2019, before Covid-19 hit. Total advertising revenue for the first nine month rose 30% year-on-year to PS1.3bn.

The company anticipates that total ad revenue for the year will rise by 24%, which includes the increasing income from ads on ITV Hub's streaming service, ITV Hub. This is a record-breaking amount compared to 2020.
