this should do:
SELECT sitename,
               campaign,
               SUM(cost)as sitecost,
               SUM(calls)as sitecalls,
               
               (SUM(cost)/NULLIF(SUM(calls),0) as 'CPC'
               
      FROM [KoolSmiles].[dbo].[v_DigitalMedia]
      where (REportDate between '3/14/11' and '3/20/11')
        and sitename = 'Google'
      group by sitename,campaign

if you don't want NULL as cpc, you can try ISNULL.
SELECT sitename,
               campaign,
               SUM(cost)as sitecost,
               SUM(calls)as sitecalls,
               
               isnull(SUM(cost)/NULLIF(SUM(calls),0),0) as 'CPC'
               
      FROM [KoolSmiles].[dbo].[v_DigitalMedia]
      where (REportDate between '3/14/11' and '3/20/11')
        and sitename = 'Google'
      group by sitename,campaign
