Hearst Unveils Buzzing@Hearst Trend-Detecting Capability for Advertisers
Jun 22 16
Hearst announced that its trend detector, Buzzing@Hearst, is now open to advertisers, allowing them to programmatically target top-performing content across Hearst's media properties. Born out of years of research and development, Buzzing@Hearst analyzes data-driven signals to constantly monitor trending articles, enabling marketers to uniquely marry their message to what's hot in real-time. Buzzing@Hearst is an extension of MediaOS, Hearst's proprietary analytics-driven content distribution platform. Buzzing monitors thousands of active articles across Hearst's digital ecosystem, including newspapers, magazines and television channels, and provides information about trending articles that editors can curate for their sites. Marketers are then able to serve up ads on pages that are receiving the most audience engagement. Linked directly to DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP), Buzzing allows for a direct data connection between Hearst's editors and digital sales teams, offering an opportunity for premium programmatic ad sales on trending pages. Advertisers's content can then be served alongside Hearst's editorial content that is demonstrating the levels of engagement at any given moment. Buzzing@Hearst looks at hundreds of signals, refreshed every 90 seconds, to create a 'Buzzing Score' of 1-20, a rating assigned to every article to determine its popularity and interest among Hearst's 350 million unique visitors. Buzzing scores are reflective of a variety of factors, giving advertisers an opportunity to advertise on pages based on everything from audience engagement to social engagement, in addition to other metrics. By integrating Buzzing@Hearst on every editor's dashboard, Hearst is able to constantly monitor for trending articles with the Buzzing Scores and curate content relevant to their publication. It also allows editors to receive instant feedback from readers and develop content more likely to resonate with audiences.

Verizon and Hearst to Develop New Video Channels for the Next Generation of Digital Video Consumers
Mar 2 16
Verizon and Hearst announced they have agreed to form a joint venture to develop digital video programming targeting the mobile millennial audience. The venture, which will be known as Verizon Hearst Media Partners following the completion of Verizon's investment, will pair Verizon's leading technology and Hearst's digital video content and production capabilities to develop two initial channels of video programming to be distributed across go90, AOL and other distribution platforms, as well as through third-party networks and licensors. The venture will initially launch two channels: RatedRed.com and Seriously.TV. RatedRed.com will be a multiplatform digital video channel for millennials from the heartland, offering this audience a brand of their own, with a lens on the world via news updates, documentaries and scripted and nonscripted series across topics like music, food, outdoor life, military affairs, politics and faith. Seriously.TV will be a multiplatform digital video channel offering comedic news updates throughout the day at a time when younger viewers are turning to their phones instead of late-night programming for their take on world events. Both channels are expected to launch in time for the NewFronts, an annual series of events for advertisers and media buyers committed to showcasing the creation of valuable partnerships between brands and native digital programming.
