What You’re Reading: The Top AgencySpy Stories of August

By Kyle O'Brien 

People who read AgencySpy sure do like the agency moves, especially in August. Nine of the top 10 read stories of the month featured a personnel change of some sort. Our Revolving Door Roundup not only topped the charts, three more of the roundups took spots in the top 10.

There was one lone campaign among the bunch, however, with a couple of NFL stars promoting DirecTV’s new streaming offering. Win one for the streamer.

Counting down from 10 to 1, here are the top stories of August.
