TV station groups and their counterparts in the ad agency community have worked for years to modernize and streamline the buying and selling of local TV to national advertisers. What impact have these efforts had on buyer and seller key performance indicators in 2021 and will they increase spot TV spending in 2022?

Executives from three major media buying agencies and a pioneering TV station group will gather to compare notes during the kickoff session at TVNewsCheck’s sixth annual TV2025: Monetizing the Future conference.

Set for Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 1 p.m. ET, the session, Data, Technology & Optimizing Spot TV, will feature Tracy Chavez, EVP, director of investment operations, Publicis; Jennifer Hungerbuhler, EVP-managing director of local video and audio investment, Dentsu; Brad Thompson, SVP, Universal McCann; and Frank Friedman, VP consumer engagement for local media at E.W. Scripps.

Janet Stilson, TVNewsCheck contributing editor, will moderate the conversation, which will also touch on industry efforts to streamline the placement of multiplatform campaigns and to move to a currency based more on audience and intent-to-purchase data and less on audience ratings.


“Technology and data are gradually transforming the buying and selling of spot TV,” said TVNewsCheck Co-Founder and Publisher Kathy Haley. “We look forward to hearing from this important panel of speakers about how both will affect spot TV spending in 2022.”
