IN THE NEWS

Just 2.5% of media dollars invested by the largest media holding companies went to diverse-owned companies in 2023, a slight uptick from 2.2% in 2022, according to research by the Alliance for Inclusive and Multicultural Marketing (AIMM) and Media Framework and Guideline. Investments by those same companies going to diverse-owned and targeted media rose 1.4% in 2023, an increase over 2022, according to the study. “Today, diversity in the U.S. stands at more than 40% – and more than 50% when adding LGBTQ+ and People with Disabilities – yet our industry’s investment in media platforms owned by these segments is dismally nominal,” said AIMM co-founder Carlos Santiago. AIMM has set new goals for ad spending – raising diverse-owned media’s cut from 2.2% in 2022 to 6.5% by 2025 and diverse-owned and diverse-targeted media portion from 1.3% to 4.6%.

Paramount Global narrowed losses in its streaming business in Q4, but its traditional linear TV business saw continued declines. Overall revenue was down 6%, as last year’s Hollywood strikes pressured film and TV units. But the company’s Paramount+ streaming service added 4.1 million subscribers in the period, ending with 67.5 million customers, improving its losses to $490 million from $575 million in the prior year. Ad revenue at Paramount’s TV networks fell 15% in the period, with affiliate fees down 1% and licensing off by 25%. Film revenue dipped 31% during the period.

Stand-up star and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” regular Richard Lewis died Wednesday. He was 76. Lewis, who announced last April that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and was retiring from comedy, died of a heart attack, said his publicist.

The first season of Taylor Sheridan’s “Tulsa King” is scheduled to make its debut on CBS this summer, ahead of its second season on Paramount+. This is the second time Paramount has moved a Sheridan-penned series to the broadcaster – its airing of Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” attracted 6.6 million viewers in its first episode.

Fuse Media has reached an agreement to exclusively sell advertising inventory on behalf of film and television studio Lionsgate for FAST channels including EBONY TV by Lionsgate, MovieSphere by Lionsgate, HerSphere by Lionsgate and OuterSphere by Lionsgate. The partnership also gives Fuse Media access to Tastemade’s inventory across Tastemade, Tastemade Travel, Tastemade Home, and Tastemade en Español. Tastemade’s in-house sales team will continue to sell their inventory directly.

Fox Corp’s FAST channel Tubi is getting a new logo with more vibrant colors and branding that plays on the “rabbit hole” concept first introduced during its 2023 Super Bowl ads. “Our viewership growth is strongest with young, multicultural audiences and they love Tubi for the rabbit holes, the nostalgia and the content they can’t get anywhere else,” Tubi CMS Nicole Parlapiano said in a statement. “In this new brand system, we wanted to give them a fun, bold and engaging platform, that remains frictionless and 100% free, to indulge in the content that reflects their passions. See you in there.”

Impact Network is making moves to better address the Black community, including a rebranding effort and new programming that better reflects its mission to inspire, improve, and impact audiences in positive ways. New programming will include movies like “Betty & Coretta”; original programming including films, series and sitcoms; and new initiatives focused on themes such a Women’s Celebration Month, Impact Health Month Black Music Month, Juneteenth, and Black Business Month.

Advertising CPMs were down 23% in Q4 2023, the smallest decline since Q2 2023, according to AdRoll’s “State of Digital Marketing Report.” Easing the blow was an unexpected 7% uptick in December, which AdRoll saw as signaling heightened advertiser confidence and campaign effectiveness as the year closed. That momentum is expected to continue this year – AdRoll’s January customer survey indicated that 2024 ad spend could be on the rise, with 40% of marketers planning to increase their budgets and 30% planning to maintain budgets similar to 2023.

When Kenough isn’t enough? An A-list of artists will perform their nominees for Best Original Song at the Oscars on March 10, including actor Ryan Gosling and songwriter Mark Ronson singing “I’m Just Ken,” from the “Barbie” soundtrack.

TECH TALK

A new study by Yahoo and Publicis Media shows that transparency will go a long way towards closing the gap between consumers and advertisers when it comes to AI. The study – “Trust Through Transparency: The Future of AI and Advertising” – polled more than 1,200 consumers and over 350 U.S. advertisers, finding that while 77% of advertisers view AI positively, only 38% of consumers share the sentiment. But brands can build trust through transparency – the study showed that AI-generated ads with noticed disclosures increased brand perceptions and caused a 47% lift in ad appeal, a 73% rise in ad trustworthiness, and a 96% increase in overall trust for the company.

In a company report, DoubleVerify said CycloneBot is capable of generating up to 250 million falsified ad requests and spoofing approximately 1.5 million devices daily, costing as much as $7.5 million across unprotected advertisers. DoubleVerify’s Fraud Lab teamed up with Roku, using the latter’s Advertising Watermark to validate and confirm spoofing activities by CycloneBot. Roku confirmed it was not impacted by the CycloneBot scheme and no resulting fraudulent ad impressions were sold or purchased from Roku.
