The State of Social Media
Comscore now has 100% of local stations in Palm Springs market subscribing to its television currency
RESTON, Va. – January 18, 2022 – Comscore (Nasdaq: SCOR), a trusted partner for planning, transacting and evaluating media across platforms, and Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC), a leading global media and marketing technology company, today jointly announced a new agreement for local audience measurement. Under the terms of the agreement, Entravision will use Comscore’s next-generation linear audience measurement service as its local audience currency in the Palm Springs, CA market.
“Now is the ideal time to begin using Comscore’s local market currency in the Coachella Valley,” said Jeffery Liberman, President and Chief Operating Officer of Entravision. “Comscore has made large strides in the last few years and is now bringing advertisers more stable and reliable measurement metrics. We look forward to working with Comscore to refine their measurement capabilities and specifically their ability to capture relevant information on the Latino market. Through this partnership, Entravision will be able to garner even further information on our viewership enabling us to continue to enhance our award-winning program offerings.”
Comscore’s census-scale approach to media currency is powered by its massive and passive measurement methodology. This enables the delivery of accurate, granular insights for audiences, including Latino audiences, so that advertisers can uncover new opportunities for brand exposure and revenue growth. For example, recent Comscore research revealed that Hispanic broadcast networks deliver a large and unduplicated reach over the “Big Four” broadcast networks, thus demonstrating the untapped potential for this valuable audience segment.
“The media industry continues to move to Comscore’s audience measurement to help solve the ongoing challenges presented by small panels prone to bias and error, particularly when it comes to accurately including underrepresented communities in their measurement base,” said Carol Hinnant, Chief Revenue Officer, Comscore. “We are excited to support Entravision and deliver reliable measurement that provides a representative picture of audience behavior.”
Comscore has more than a decade of experience measuring television viewership from the return path devices across tens of millions of households in all local markets. Comscore is also a leader in instrumenting change in television measurement by enabling the adoption of advanced audiences and the move to impressions, which allow the industry to go beyond age and gender to evaluate based on consumer behaviors, interests and lifestyles. This enables TV stations, networks, advertisers, agencies and media companies at both local and national levels to effectively reach their ideal audiences and to maximize their revenues. Comscore also recently launched Comscore Everywhere, the new standard for single-source, cross-platform measurement currency across content, advertising, planning, and optimization.
