While the viability or value of such an approach for a presidential campaign spot isn’t clear, what was clear was that some other advertisers didn’t want their spots to be airing directly before or after a political ad. Fox has reportedly decided on an appeasement effort. According to Jeanine Poggi at Ad Age, Fox will air the ads in insulated from other paid spots; instead, Fox promos will fill the breaks during which the campaign ads run.
From Ad Age:
A Fox spokeswoman did not return requests to comment.
As Ad Age also notes, Trump’s spot will likely appear early in the broadcast, with Bloomberg’s slated for halftime.
