How to become a Media Planner

Media planners are part of the wider advertising and public relations fraternity that are concerned with the preparation and design campaigns on behalf of their clients. More specifically, media planners are responsible for acquiring media time and space for the purposes of advertising their clients' brand and products on a range of media that includes the Internet, publications, TV, and radio.
