Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Integrates Nielsen's Audience Measurement Data into AuDIO

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment (CCM+E) announced that the Audience Delivery Optimizer (AuDiO), its groundbreaking, proprietary radio targeting tool for political advertisers, now incorporates Nielsen's radio audience measurement data to further enhance its ability to identify key voter segments. This marks the first time that Nielsen's Portable People Meter (PPM) currency data, the industry standard, has been combined with specific public voter information -- creating a powerful new tool for political advertisers. With the integration of Nielsen's industry-standard audience measurement data into AuDiO, political advertisers now have access to even more robust identification capabilities for their radio buys. Nielsen Audio's PPM panel measures the radio listening habits of more than 75,000 respondents across 48 different markets. Nielsen uses an independent third party to conduct a blind, direct match of the panelist's listening data to Clear Channel-selected voter data sources including voter registration. The result is a combination of the high quality listening data directly linked to anonymized and aggregated key voter characteristics and political views. Now part of AuDiO, Clear Channel's political advertising tool, the matched data enables Clear Channel to recommend radio stations that deliver specific voter segments based on advertising objectives with pinpoint accuracy.
