The Radio Creative Fund named the finalists in the 16th annual Radio-Mercury Awards competition.
Leading this year’s finalists with six spots each in multiple categories are Crispin Porter + Bogusky, TBWA/Chiat/Day and DeVito/Verdi.
A new Urban category attracted some multicultural ad agencies: Burrell Communications, Global Hue and Uniworld Group.
