Cross-Media Ad Company Goes Exclusive With Comscore


Here’s another win for Comscore.

Local cross-media advertising company Viamedia has decided to use Comscore as its exclusive source for TV data ad currency in 72 of its 73 markets.

“We have a long history of partnering with Comscore and are consistently impressed with the stability and granularity of their TV currency,” Viamedia President/CEO Mark Lieberman said. “It is an easy decision to rely on the Comscore currency in the majority of our markets as its approach to measurement reflects the modern media landscape for TV and beyond. As Viamedia has expanded its services into the digital space, we needed a currency that’s reliable and scalable in today’s complex cross-platform world.”

Comscore EVP/National Carol Hinnant added, “We are thrilled to grow our partnership with Viamedia and to act as the exclusive TV currency for nearly all of its markets and be the measurement source for their future cross-platform efforts. As the video landscape continues to evolve in complexity, it’s important that advertisers have a more accurate and holistic view of the audiences they are trying to reach so they can optimize their advertising efforts and make business decisions with confidence.”
