Sinclair Broadcast Group is launching a headline news service in early 2021, starting with weekday mornings from 6a-9a on Sinclair’s CW and MyNetwork TV affiliates, as well as streamer STIRR. The service will report in real time on significant stories of the day, drawing on content from Sinclair stations. “The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the demonstrations occurring across our country has reminded us of the important, invaluable role that local news plays in our communities,” said Chris Ripley, President and CEO of Sinclair. “Every national story has its roots in local communities and with this new platform, we will ensure that more voices and stories are elevated to the attention of viewers everywhere.”

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and his wife, Patty Quillen, pledged $120 million – $40 million each to the United Negro College Fund, and historically Black colleges Spelman College and Morehouse College. “We wanted to do our part to draw attention, in this case, to the HBCU’s 150 years of resilience, of educating young Black people and the stories not well understood in the white community,” said Hastings, a long-time major donor to education reform.

Alex Kompothecras was fired from MTV’s Siesta Key over racial slurs on his social media account.

Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty) signed a broadcast network-only exclusive direct animation deal with Fox Entertainment, to create and develop a comedy series targeted to debut in spring 2022. Fox Entertainment will produce the series, with its Bento Box Entertainment as the animation studio.

HBO Max gave a greenlight for adult animated series 10-Year-Old-Tom, about a boy grappling with being corrupted by grownups. Steve Dildarian (The Life and Times of Tim) will write and executive produce; Nick Weidenfeld (Rick and Morty) will executive produce. Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer HBO Max and President TNT, TBS, and TruTV, and Suzanna Makkos, EVP Original Comedy and Animation, have a history with both Dildarian and Weidenfeld – Reilly and Makkos had a development deal with Dildarian during their tenure at Fox and during that same time Reilly created the animation studio ADHD run by Weidenfeld.

Warner Bros. Television signed a deal with director Matthew A. Cherry (Hair Love), to develop comedies, dramas and event series via his Cherry Lane Productions in association with Warner Bros.

The Bold and the Beautiful is going back into production, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines that include masks (except for actors filming), regular testing and staggered call times.

The streamer reports audience growth is accelerating with millions of new users signing up year-to-date and 145% audience growth year over year (May 2020 vs. May 2019). “This is a period of remarkable growth for Haystack, with downloads and usage surging as we accelerate our performance across all platforms. Haystack has extended our leadership with more premium news partners and support for more OTT platforms than anyone,” said Daniel Barreto, CEO and Co-Founder of Haystack TV. “The importance of free access to news could not be more apparent as we battle a global pandemic, economic dislocation and social unrest.”

“So far, so good,” said AT&T CFO John Stephens of HBO Max yesterday. Speaking at the CSFB Media conference, Stephens said WarnerMedia is “optimistic” about its new streamer, launched May 27, and planned for 50 million subscribers over five years.

Facing criticism for its hands-off policy on political ads, Facebook said users will soon be able to opt out of seeing social issues, electoral or political ads from political action committees or candidates in their Facebook and Instagram feeds. “Everyone wants to see politicians held accountable for what they say – and I know many people want us to moderate and remove more of their content,” wrote Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, in a USA Today op-ed piece. “For those of you who’ve already made up your minds and just want the election to be over, we hear you – so we’re also introducing the ability to turn off seeing political ads. We’ll still remind you to vote.” Facebook also introduced a voting information center with information on how and when to vote.

A study from Viamedia found 83% of companies have changed their marketing strategies in response to the pandemic, and 46% are offering incentives and promotions to drive sales. Additional findings from the research reveals new opportunities for local business advertising:
* Continued Investment in Marketing: 40% of respondents from various industries including auto, furniture, healthcare, non-profits, retail, real estate, and entertainment among others, reported an annual marketing budget of at least $75,000 – 39% of which was allocated to advertising.
* Intent to Advertise: Business owners indicated a continued need for advertising, with 45% looking for creative incentives for advertising, and 28% wanting tips and insights to improve the effectiveness of their marketing.“The survey results clearly indicate that the prospects for advertising can be strong despite some conventional wisdom,” said Becky Jones, CMO and People Officer at Viamedia. “For many respondents, the need to power through the pandemic far outweighs the anxiety. And as we’ve experienced in the past, businesses that take the courageous path to advertise during a crisis often find great success on the other end.”

The ARF has established ARF WIDE: Workforce Initiative for Diversity and Excellence, a program to improve the quality and diversity of the future workforce of the advertising, media and research/analytics industries. ARF WIDE will use donations to provide scholarships to economically-disadvantaged college and junior college students interested in research/analytics. “ARF WIDE has been under development for a number of months, but the COVID-19 pandemic, which has especially hit low-income families, has heightened the urgency of getting this program up and running now” said Scott McDonald, president and CEO, the ARF. “As recent events have made clear, our industry needs to grow and benefit from the contributions of a more diverse workforce.”

Roku is focused on delivering advertisers agility, control and value – the three core focus areas of its inaugural NewFront presentation on Monday, June 22. As well as launching its new OneView ad platform last month, the streaming platform is offering brands an incremental reach guarantee. “This is a game changer for marketers. Roku will offer incremental reach guarantees to brands for the first time,” Dan Robbins, VP of Ad Marketing and Partner Solutions, tells Cynopsis. “Simply put, if a Roku home has already seen the ad on linear TV, the advertiser does not pay for that Roku impression.” For more on Roku’s offering to brands and the effect of the pandemic disruption on streaming, check out our complete Cynsiders interview with Robbins here.

New research from Mindshare looks at questions around racial inequality and corresponding brand actions. Among those surveyed:
· 68% agree that brands have an important role to play to speak out against racial inequality and injustice – but 60% agree that “I don’t think brands who speak out are genuine about the cause but are being opportunistic.”
· Men are more likely to be wary of brand’s authenticity when speaking out about BLM and racial inequality (66% of Men agree “I don’t think brands who speak out are genuine about the cause but are being opportunistic” vs. 53% of Women).
· Millennials and Gen X’ers are more likely to say brands have an important role to play to speak out against racial injustice and inequality (79% of Millennials and 80% of Gen X agree vs. 71% of Gen Z and 45% of Boomers).

Ad fraud is spiking in the CTV ad ecosystem, according to DoubleVerify, the software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics. Between January and April of 2020, DV detected a 161% increase year-over-year in fraudulent CTV traffic. In 1Q20, DV detected more than 500 fraudulent apps, exceeding what they detected across the entirety of 2019, and the company currently detects over 500,000 fraudulent CTV devices a day. “Advertisers usually don’t know what apps or content they advertise in,” notes DV. “While programmatic deals typically include app information in the form of BundleIDs, this information usually doesn’t follow any industry standards and is highly unreliable. Any one app can have up to 15 IDs, and each could be a random number like ‘1234’. In fact DV has detected that only 23% of CTV auctions have app names that adhere to IAB conventions.”

The IAB unveiled the final schedule for next week’s NewFronts. Presentations will provide attendees with content on streaming video, lifestyle, news and audio, esports, and gaming – for the Cynopsis UpFront Calendar, go here.
