TfL appointed their current media buying agent in October 2005 and they only have relevant information from January 2006. It is only recently that TfL has recorded ethnic minority and foreign-language media activities separately and therefore they do not hold this information prior to January 2006. The available figures are as follows:Ethnic Minority: 2006Press: £196,184Radio: £26,524Total: £222,2082007 (Up to 21 May)Press: £105,121Radio: £44,784TV: £5,000Total: £154,905Foreign Language press:2006: £80,969 2007: None as yet (Up to 21 May)
