Karsh/Hagan is an advertising agency that says it relies on "disruption" to find "new ways to connect brands and consumers." [1]

The firm is an Omnicom Group agency and "part of the TBWA \ global creative community." [2]

News product placement

The firm negotiated a controversial product placement deal for McDonald's. For six months, starting in July 2008, the deal had coffee cups bearing the fast food company's logo appearing on morning news television shows on KVVU-5, a Meredith Corporation-owned Fox station in Las Vegas. The New York Times reported that McDonald's had similar morning news product placement arrangements with Fox owned-and-operated WFLD in Chicago, Tribune Company-owned Fox station KCPQ in Seattle, and Univision 41 in New York City. However, it wasn't clear if Karsh/Hagan had only negotiated the KVVU deal, or all the McDonald's station deals. [3]
