KFC Corp., Louisville, Ky., denied July 5 that its $170 million account is in review, despite reports that executives have contacted at least two New York shops for creative reels. Y&R Advertising, New York, has handled the account for two decades. "We are actively working with Y&R and pursuing new creative with them," the spokesman said. A Y&R spokeswoman declined to comment on the situation.
