AT&T, Basking Ridge, NJ, has consolidated its college market business with Foote, Cone & Belding Direct, New York.


The business previously was split between Foote, Cone & Belding Direct and Bronner Slosberg Humphrey and was consolidated without a formal review. Billings were not disclosed.


Foote, Cone & Belding, the general agency, already handles the advertising for the college market, which targets more than 14 million college students a year. AT&T officials cited consistency as the reason for the consolidation.


"Sending consistent, focused messages to our consumer is what we are after," said Ira Cohen, consumer marketing communications director at AT&T. "Streamlining the work into one agency is going to allow us to more effectively reach this market."
