The former Campaign deputy editor Jeremy Lee is joining The Drum today as an advertising columnist.
Lee is one of the best connected journalists in advertising, having spent 14 years covering the industry at Campaign and its sister titles before leaving to go freelance last year.
He will bring his extensive industry knowledge to bear in the new monthly column Jeremy Lee on Advertising, which launches today with a look at agencies taking on morally questionable accounts such as Wonga.
"Unless you've been living on the moon, you can't have failed to notice how The Drum has become an essential read for everyone working in the advertising industry," Lee said.
"Its dynamic, fast moving and comprehensive coverage – combined with an unstoppable ambition – meant that the opportunity to join the talented team as a regular columnist was too good to miss."
Cameron Clarke, The Drum's commisioning editor, added: "Jeremy's one of the best writers in the business and has an enviable contacts book. His knowledge of the industry is second to none and we believe his monthly column on thedrum.com will become a must-read for anyone working in advertising and media."
