Westwood One to utilize Nielsen National Media Impact to quantify the effect of adding Network Radio to Television Media Plans

Originally Published by Nielsen.

Nielsen (NYSE: NLSN) announced that Westwood One has expanded its relationship with Nielsen to license the national version of Nielsen Media Impact (NMI) powered by Nielsen’s Total Media Fusion. Nielsen Media Impact is a cross-platform media planning and optimization solution that helps clients understand total campaign reach, frequency and duplication using advanced audience segments. NMI will enable Westwood One to demonstrate the value that its unique audiences bring to an advertiser’s media plan and illustrate radio’s substantial incremental reach.

“With Nielsen Media Impact, we can show our advertising partners the effect on overall campaign reach and frequency when money is moved between media,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Marketing, CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “Advertisers will be able to access this tool through the groundbreaking Westwood One ROI Guarantee audio insights platform. It’s a new dimension in making media investments work smarter for marketers using radio, podcasting and streaming to drive ROI. We welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the power of adding audio to a media plan, giving agencies and brands the information they need to understand the true value of our medium in driving sales.”

“We are pleased to welcome Westwood One as a subscriber for Nielsen National Media Impact,” said Brad Kelly, Managing Director, Nielsen Audio. “With NMI we now have a much clearer understanding of how radio and TV complement, supplement and amplify one another. Westwood One is well positioned to make the most of this extraordinary new tool and shine a bright spotlight on how AM/FM radio can deliver more consumers that advertisers seek.”

“Brands are looking for strategies to fortify and enhance their TV plans, and as America’s largest audio network, we can now demonstrate the incrementality of adding radio to a media plan,” said Pierre Bouvard, Chief Insights Officer at Cumulus | Westwood One. “Radio makes your TV better, and now we have proof via the gold standard of Nielsen total audience measurement.”

In 2018, Nielsen enhanced Nielsen Media Impact, the industry leading cross-platform media planning solution, to include national radio. Nielsen’s national radio data within Nielsen Media Impact allows buyers and sellers to understand the value of radio as a medium at the national level, as well as the incremental reach achieved by including national radio in the media mix. With the national version of Nielsen Media Impact clients can plan and optimize media allocation and compare total radio, radio formats and radio owner groups with other national media (including TV, digital, print, cinema and digital place-based media) in advanced audience segments.
