Scripps Adds Local TV Programmatic Ad Buys

Empower MediaMarketing, an independent media agency, has announced plans to allow advertisers to buy local broadcast TV inventory via programmatic channels. Empower has partnered with the E.W.

Local programmatic ad inventory from Scripps-owned TV stations is expected to be available to Empower clients by the second quarter of 2015.
