Broadcaster ITV has warned they expect half year advertising revenue to fall by 6% as they have been hit with Brexit uncertainty.
The broadcaster reported a 7% fall in advertising revenues for the first quarter of 2019 due to Easter and Brexit impacting the demand for advertising.
In March revenues fell by 16% and ITV has warned they expect revenues will plummet by around 20% in June.

“We have a solid slate of new and returning programmes in the UK and internationally including Snowpiercer, World On Fire, Line Of Duty, this year’s most watched programme in the UK, Zero Zero Zero, Hell’s Kitchen, Love Island and I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!”
