IN THE NEWS

Add Wolf Blitzer (CNN’s “The Situation Room”) to the fast-growing lineup of hosts for upcoming streaming service CNN+. Blitzer’s “The Newscast with Wolf Blitzer” joins shows featuring CNN colleagues Anderson Cooper, Kate Bolduan, and Sara Sidner, along with Chris Wallace, Audie Cornish and Kasie Hunt, among others. The service is set to debut in the spring.

It’s the end for MTV’s “The Hills: New Beginnings.” The revival reunited cast member of 2006-10 reality series, “The Hills.”

It’s also the end of the road, almost, for CBS’ “Bull.” The legal drama sixth season, now airing, will be its last. “It’s been my privilege to play Dr Jason Bull but after 6 Seasons of incredible storylines, I’ve decided it’s time to pursue new creative challenges and bring his story to a close,” said series star Michael Weatherly on Twitter. “It has been an honor to work with this talented cast, crew, and writing/producing team who helped reinvent the legal drama. Stay tuned for a big series finish.”

Jon Stewart will be the recipient of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, in a gala taking place Sunday, April 24. “I have long admired and been influenced by the work of Mark Twain, or, as he was known by his given name, Samuel Leibowitz,” said Stewart.

Standard General and Apollo Global Management are nearing a $9 billion deal for Tegna, reports the New York Post. Regulations prohibiting any entity from owning commercial stations reaching more than 39% of US households could prove a stumbling block, since Tegna’s stations and Apollo’s would exceed that.

Dan Ball, host of One America News’ “Real America” is pulling no punches about DirecTV’s decision to drop OAN from its lineup in April. In addition to giving viewers AT&T’s customer support number and directing them to “blow the lines up,” Ball asked viewers to dig up dirt on DirecTV board chairman Bill Kennard so he can report on it.

The PGA Tour isn’t leaving home without American Express. Amex will continue as title sponsor of The American Express in La Quinta, California, through 2028. The annual tournament, which features a pro-am format, takes place January 20-23. “Giving back to the community while celebrating the passions of our customers is at the center of what we do at American Express,” said Stephen J. Squeri, Chairman and CEO of American Express. “We’re honored to continue this legacy by extending our role as title sponsor and growing the total charitable funds raised.”

Bucking the trend of TV award nominations being dominated by streaming shows, linear came out strong in the 33rd Annual GLAAD Awards noms for Outstanding Drama Series. Up for the prize are “9-1-1: Lone Star” (Fox), “Batwoman” (The CW), “The Chi” (Showtime), “Doom Patrol” (HBO Max), “Good Trouble” (Freeform”), “Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC), “The L Word” (Showtime), “Pose” (FX), “Star Trek Discovery” (Paramount+) and “Supergirl” (The CW). Linear TV was not so well-represented in the comedy category, though, which includes “Dickinson” (Apple TV+), “Gentefied” (Netflix), “Love, Victor” (Hulu), “The Other Two” (HBO Max), “Saved by the Bell” (Peacock), “Sex Education” (Netflix), “Shrill” (Hulu), “Special” (Netflix), “Twenties” (BET), and “Work in Progress” (Showtime).

ADVERTISING

Fox Corporation has planned two in-person Upfront events this spring, kicking off with the Content Drives Commerce Brand Partnership Summit on the Fox lot in LA on Wednesday, March 23. The day will include discussion and experiences from industry experts, talent, creators, and Fox leaders. The Fox Upfront will be a hybrid affair, taking place on Monday, May 16, at the Skylight on Vesey in New York City to showcase the “Power of the Fox Portfolio.” Fox will also participate in the IAB’s 2022 NewFronts, with an event taking place the week of May 2 featuring Tubi. “Fox will showcase how we continue to challenge the status quo across Measurement, Creativity, and Innovation to drive impact with Partners in 2022,” said Marianne Gambelli, President of Advertising Sales, Fox. “As a 100% ad supported portfolio, staying connected with our valued partners is a huge priority, and we can’t wait to see everyone in person.”

Advertisers can best engage with Latinx audiences by celebrating family time, and grow acquisition by promoting top genres such as sports and Spanish channels year-round, according to research from Roku. Sports channels dominate time spent on linear TV, according to the data, with 15% of the LatinX community’s time spent on sports channels. And while 83% of Latinx Americans speak English, 35% of time is spent on Spanish speaking channels. In addition, Latinx users on Roku are 74% more likely to have a 4+ household than non-Latinx Roku users.

A survey of 54 senior US advertisers forecast year-over-year growth of 7% in US advertising in 2022. The Cowen International study also found the digital ad market is expected to grow by 17%. The new iOs 14.5 changes requiring developers to get users’ permission to access the Identifier for Advertisers to collect targeting data will impact measurement and targeting for six months or more, believe 60% of respondents, with 20% expecting the impacts to be permanent.

Advertising space for the Super Bowl is nearly sold out, said Dan Lovinger, President of NBCU Ad Sales and Partnerships, during a video presentation on Wednesday, but added the company has reserved a few spots. Sales are pacing at about 20% above NBC’s last Super Bowl telecast in 2018, with select 30-second spots going for as much as $6.5 million. Lovinger predicted “a more comedic tone” in commercials, noting, “We all need that.”

A privacy bill introduced this week would prohibit advertisers from using personal information to target ads. The “Banning Surveillance Advertising Act,” from Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-California), Jan Schakowsky (D-Illinois) and Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), maintains personal information includes data that is “reasonably linkable” to an individual or device. “The ‘surveillance advertising’ business model is premised on the unseemly collection and hoarding of personal data to enable ad targeting,” said Eshoo. “This pernicious practice allows online platforms to chase user engagement at great cost to our society, and it fuels disinformation, discrimination, voter suppression, privacy abuses, and so many other harms.”

Not surprisingly, Google was among those contending the bill could have serious unintended ramifications. In a blog post titled “The harmful consequences of Congress’ anti-tech bills,” Google’s Kent Walker said the bill covers leading American countries, “while giving a free pass to foreign companies.” In addition, Walker maintains the legislation could make services like Google Search, Maps and Gmail “less helpful and less secure, and damag[e] American competitiveness.”
