IN THE NEWS

Consumers understand that advertising can help make programming less expensive and generally welcome ads in CTV environments, according to a study from Yahoo and Publicis Media, “CTV Ad Attention & Receptiveness.” Forty-six percent of respondents said they would rather pay less and receive some ads when adding a new streaming service, and 82% of CTV viewers expect ads on free streaming services. Seven out of 10 AVOD users report being at least somewhat satisfied with their CTV ad experience. And a significant percentage of respondents found ads to be useful, with 56% agreeing that ads and commercials provide them with useful information. Placement matters – the study found attention varied by pod position. On average, ads aired in the first in-pod position capture 6% more attention than ads aired in the mid or last pod position. If an ad airs in the first in-pod position, it captures at least 2 seconds of attention 38% of the time.

Fox News producer Abby Grossberg has filed two lawsuits against the news network, alleging the company’s lawyers coerced her into providing misleading testimony in Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion lawsuit against FNC. “Fox News Attorneys acted as agents and at the behest of Fox News to misleadingly coach, manipulate, and coerce Ms. Grossberg to deliver shaded and/or incomplete answers during her sworn deposition testimony, which answers were clearly to her reputational detriment but greatly benefitted Fox News,” says the lawsuit. Responded FNC, which filed a suit of its own against Grossberg, “Fox News Media engaged an independent outside counsel to immediately investigate the concerns raised by Ms. Grossberg, which were made following a critical performance review. We will vigorously defend these claims.” Grossberg is currently on administrative leave.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday a Delaware judge heard arguments from Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems, each side hoping to convince him they should prevail before going to trial. Dominion lawyers claimed Fox News knew allegations that the election technology company helped rig the 2020 presidential election were false but continued airing them in pursuit of ratings, while FNC maintained it was reporting newsworthy allegations.

“The Steve Wilkos Show,” hosted by the former US Marine, has been renewed for a 17th season in national syndication, it was announced by Tracie Wilson, EVP, NBCUniversal Syndication Studios & E!
