Broadcast media is instrumental in shaping public perceptions. From the local nightly television broadcast to drive-time radio programming, millions are tuning in for the latest news. For PR and marketing professionals tasked with monitoring the buzz around a brand, keeping on top of mentions heard across the airwaves is crucial to truly understanding the conversations shaping consumer sentiment.
PR Newswire has partnered with Critical Mention, who pioneered the entry of global, real-time TV and radio data into big data and business intelligence applications, to enhance the Agility platform with broadcast TV and radio content for comprehensive, real-time monitoring across all media types.
