Consistent measurement in the video world, regardless of device, remains the single most difficult puzzle in today’s media landscape, and is far from being solved. That’s why Cynopsis is presenting the second Measurement & Data Conference, to help advance the conversation by having leading thinkers and doers examine the thorniest points in the discussion so we can all move forward – successfully.
SPONSORSHIP & PROMOTION
AEG, the owner and operator of the Amgen Tour of California, announced that it is renewing its agreement with Amgen to extend their relationship. The renewal agreement, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, provides Amgen with naming rights and other exclusive sponsorship benefits for the Tour de France-style eight-day professional cycling road race, which travels annually across more than 800 miles of California’s most scenic roadways, highways, and coastline drives.
The Hertz Corporation signed on with Hendrick Motorsports as a primary sponsor of William Byron and his No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team beginning in 2018. As part of the two-year agreement, Hertz will be primary sponsor of the No. 24 team in four points-paying Cup Series races in both 2018 and 2019 and an associate-level partner in all other events. Additionally, Hertz will sponsor Byron in the non-points 2018 NASCAR All-Star Race weekend events at the driver’s hometown track of Charlotte Motor Speedway.
CBS Sports HQ named Evan Washburn as an anchor. Beginning this week, he joins the team in leading the platform’s live streaming coverage. Evan will continue in his role as a reporter for THE NFL ON CBS, and also as a college basketball reporter, studio host and lacrosse analyst for CBS Sports Network.
Sports Illustrated TV and Major League Baseball announced a new licensing and original content agreement. The arrangement provides SI TV with access to MLB’s library of games, documentaries and shows, as well as includes a co-production deal for two original long-form documentaries. SI TV will also curate MLB games that range from “iconic moments to recent classics” with the first games to air dubbed “Ace’s Choice,” a reference to top pitchers. Sports Illustrated asked four Hall-of-Fame pitchers — Nolan Ryan, Tom Glavine, Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson — to choose their favorite outings and their picks will be shown in their entirety on SI TV. The alliance also includes a co-production deal that will partner MLB and SI TV on two original baseball documentaries. The first film, “14 Back,” is currently in production and will be helmed by 11-time Emmy award-winning director/producer Jonathan Hock.
ESPN Digital reports that its platforms served 80.8 million unique fans in the US in April, while short form video starts across ESPN Digital platforms totaled 778.8 million in April, up 50% year-over-year.
