GateHouse Media Renews Local TV Ratings Agreement With Nielsen

Ad Agency Returns to Nielsen After Year Hiatus

GateHouse Media, a boutique advertising agency headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, has renewed its agreement with Nielsen to provide behavioral insights and local TV measurement services. GateHouse, after a brief hiatus with another measurement company, returned to license Nielsen Local TV Ratings to provide its local advertising clients more reliable buying and market forecasting.

“We are pleased to return to Nielsen after our year away,” said Debbie Dalton, Founder and CEO of GateHouse Media. “We have a much greater appreciation of what Nielsen TV Ratings brings to our buying process as our clients need us to provide a reliable and complete viewing lens into our local consumer, and Nielsen is best equipped to provide that service.”

Coverage: Nielsen’s ability to measure a comprehensive scope of viewers in and
outside the home, as well as the growing viewing habits of cord-cutters and cord-nevers who rely on Over-the-Air for broadcast TV.

Reliability: Nielsen understands the nuances of the local market to reliably project and forecast the reach of the local audience.
