New “Jeopardy!” host Mike Richards is in the hot seat again, after news website The Ringer unearthed episodes of a podcast he hosted from 2013-14 during which he used offensive language about women’s bodies. “Even with the passage of time, it’s more than clear that my attempts to be funny and provocative were not acceptable, and I have removed the episodes,” said Richards. “I have substantial and serious obligations as a role model, and I intend to live up to them.” Richards previously faced allegations related to past lawsuits when he was a producer on “The Price Is Right.”

Eighty-five percent of kids ages 2-12 use YouTube, and 70% remember seeing advertising on it, according to a new survey from Precise TV.

A number of other companies, including ViacomCBS, NBCUniversal, Disney and WarnerMedia, have made vaccination a requirement for returning to offices.

TECH TALK

The Federal Trade Commission has filed a new antitrust lawsuit accusing Facebook of creating an illegal monopoly. “Facebook has systematically tracked potential rivals and acquired companies that it viewed as serious competitive threats,” said the complaint. “Facebook supplemented this anticompetitive acquisition strategy with anticompetitive conditional dealing policies, designed to erect or maintain entry barriers and to neutralize perceived competitive threats.” A tweet from Facebook said it was reviewing the complaint and “will have more to say soon.”

Consumer marketing data firm Catalina is launching a new service measuring OOH advertising sales lift. The service, launched in partnership with AdQuick, covers both OOH advertising and DOOH advertising screens. “Until recently, OOH targeting and measurement relied upon practices such as census-based demographics and footfall data to determine the ideal placement of media, as well as location-based foot traffic studies to estimate and measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns,” said Tiffany Southwell, VP of Out of Home Media at Catalina. “These methods don’t work for CPG advertisers since the demographic data fails to identify actual consumer purchase preferences for specific brands. Meanwhile location-based foot traffic studies highlight when a consumer visited a grocery store but fail to inform whether a purchase of an advertised product is made.”
