Comscore Signs Local TV Ratings Contract with KUSI-TV San Diego
Leading Independent News Station Adopts Comscore’s Local Television Ratings
RESTON, VA, JANUARY 12, 2017 – Comscore (NASDAQ: SCOR) today announced it has signed a local TV measurement agreement with KUSI-TV in San Diego.
One of the nation’s most-watched Independent local television stations, KUSI will now have access to Comscore local TV ratings.
“KUSI News is as unique as the market we serve,” said KUSI’s President and General Manager Michael McKinnon. “Comscore is measuring one out of every three San Diego homes, which matters because people watch TV differently here than they do in LA or San Francisco. With the inclusion of Comscore's Auto and Political ratings, we will be able to sell the relevance and value of our audiences, not just their size.”
“We are excited to have KUSI join the Comscore family of clients,” said Comscore’s Executive Vice President Steve Walsh. “Their commitment further illustrates that the local TV industry is adopting Comscore as their massive database currency.”
