Dentsu and Comscore Partner on Advanced Audiences in Local TV

Comscore is partnering with dentsu, enabling the agency network to shift local TV buying to a Comscore-based currency, which supports transactions on advanced audiences in all 210 local markets.

Dentsu will be the first agency network to place buys in local markets using advanced audiences across its three U.S. media agencies, Carat, dentsu X, and iProspect.

"At dentsu we pride ourselves on knowing people better than anyone else and have been at the forefront of unlocking new ways to create addressable, audience-first solutions across media environments. For too long, our local TV buyers have been unable to reap the benefits of advances in data-driven buying,” said Jennifer Hungerbuhler, executive vice president of local and audio investment atdentsu Media US, in a statement. "As we look to what's next in media, the scale and stability of Comscore's local TV dataset, coupled with the power of dentsu's M1 audience intelligence platform, enable new opportunities for us to precisely transact on the audiences that matter most to our clients and drive value in every market."

"Comscore has a long history of innovating the way media is bought and sold, and we are proud to partner with dentsu as they break new ground in the local media industry," said Carol Hinnant, chief revenue officer of Comscore, in a statement. "This test will demonstrate that advancements in how local media is transacted are not only possible but necessary."
