A more contemporary advertising image--and possibly a new ad agency--are on tap for the Los Angeles Times. In a bid to present a more up-to-date image and to boost circulation, The Times, which spends about $5 million each year to advertise and promote itself, has begun an agency review. The current ad agency, J. Walter Thompson, is still in the running, but several other agencies, including BBDO/Los Angeles, have made presentations to Times officials. "We're looking to see if there's a way to energize our advertising and build circulation," said Don Clark, executive vice president of marketing.
