Standard General is continuing its proxy fight against Tegna, with a letter to shareholders that was a response to a rebuttal presentation filed by Tegna.

As a fairly cynical person myself, it felt like perfect material.”

Antenna TV is cleaning up with a “Maid-for-a-Day” Mother’s Day marathon starting Sunday, May 9 at 5a. The lineup will include episodes of 1961-66 sitcom “Hazel.”

STREAMING

Roku has rebranded the Quibi titles it acquired from the shuttered startup as Roku Originals.

Major League Baseball is encouraging regional sports networks to look into selling OTT service to fans. “What we’re trying to do now is work with those RSNs to figure out what type of structure would make sense for an over-the-top product that may not require authentication,” said MLB’s Chief Operations and Strategy Officer Chris Marinak during the Stream TV Sports Summit.

CJC and TheGrid Networks will be available on ad supported multimedia platform PLEX by early summer. CJC and TheGrid networks are owned and curated by Carl Jackson Media Broadcasting.

ADVERTISING

ProVantageX has partnered with FreeWheel, A Comcast Company, to integrate their local TV automation and optimization software into FreeWheel’s Strata ad management platform. The integration allows users of Strata, which delivers converged video solutions and partnership capabilities to over 1,100 agencies, to receive output from PVX, a full, end-to-end platform for buyers and sellers of local television that automates ratings estimating, schedule optimization, activation and stewardship.

The US ad market expanded 24.7% in March 2021 versus the same month last year, when the pandemic hit hard, and was up 7.2% versus March 2019, more than making up for 2020 declines, according to Standard Media Index. The data is processed from ad spending by agencies representing 90% of US ad spending.

Many advertisers elevated their branded content and influencer marketing programs as the pandemic and social justice movement disrupted advertising-as-usual, according to Advertiser Perceptions’ Branded Content and Influencer Marketing Report. Throughout the second half of 2020, 32% increased spending on branded content and 25% spent more to back influencers, putting 20% of their digital budgets into these complementary practices, which is more than they put into paid search (14%), display (13%), paid social (12%), or digital video (12%). “Many advertisers returned from lockdowns without their supply systems fully in place, so they had to prioritize upper-funnel activity again,” said Sarah Bolton, EVP/Business Intelligence at Advertiser Perceptions. “Because it seemed insensitive to hard-sell products, they leaned on influencer marketing to drive awareness and humanize their brands.”
