The total smashed the previous record of $936 million mix in December 2019 and illustrates that local TV ad spending is making a comeback after slowing khổng lồ a trickle because of COVID-19, & that the automated system is making it easier for more agencies to lớn make local buys.

In September 2019, ePort, part of FreeWheel’s Strata ad buying platkhung, handled $602 million in local broadcast buys. But Michael McHugh, VPhường, media eBusiness at FreeWheel said a better comparison is September 2018--the previous election year, when spending was $809 million.

McHugh said that a lot of the political money was already on the books before September. “So what you’re seeing now is the economy coming bachồng & local marketers wanting to lớn get their message out,” he said.

So far this year ePort has delivered orders for advertising worth $6.115 billion, putting it on traông chồng to lớn top more than $8 billion in 2020, beating the record phối in 2018 of $7.197 billion.

ePort was originally mix up in 2007 by the TVB with contributions from a consortium of station owners. It was built by FreeWheel as part of Strata và in 2011, the TVB transferred ownership khổng lồ Strata which manages the platsize, with underwriting from Katz Media and Cox Reps.

“You can call it the first wave sầu of automation,” McHugh said. He said the original vision was lớn find a way khổng lồ make buying broadcast easier.

“It’s the most democratic way to lớn get khổng lồ all the stations,” McHugh said.

The system also increases reliability While orders in the system were always received by the stations electronically, these days they are routed automatically into the stations traffic systems. That eliminates the need khổng lồ re-key the order, và reduces errors and discrepancies.

The automated system also has benefits as station ownership consolidates. “They’re all looking for these efficient electronic connections,” McHugh said.

In addition to lớn over-the-air commercials, ePort is able to lớn handle stations’ digital inventory, whether its over-the-top or secondary digital channels.

“It’s interesting because the standard has been flexible enough that it’s accommodating much of this first wave sầu of digital buying và selling,” McHugh said. “We continue khổng lồ enhance it so it meets the needs of the business.”
