Glenwood, AL (February 21, 2018) – After several months of analysis and testing, effective immediately, Pursuit Channel will begin reporting on the size and demographics of its network television audience through a new long-term agreement with the advertising industry’s original and most globally trusted source – Nielsen.
“While previously Pursuit had relied on third-party audience measurement from other providers it has concluded that with recent expansion onto additional distribution platforms and strong audience response to its improving programming schedule, it is time to move to Nielsen,” said Rusty Faulk, CEO of Pursuit Channel. “We look forward to working with Nielsen to develop deeper insights into avid viewers of the outdoors TV category.”
“Our brand has risen quickly becoming one of the highest profile brands in outdoor enthusiast
entertainment with high quality content and emotionally connected viewers,” said Scott Boos, head of U.S. ad sales and investment of Pursuit Channel. “Along with this rapid growth comes a responsibility to the advertising community to provide the very best analytics available. We take that responsibility seriously and joining forces with the Nielsen family is at the center of the business model.”
Pursuit Channel showcases dozens of America’s leading award winning outdoor television series, including Destination Baja, Ducks Unlimited TV, Fly Rod Chronicles, Deer and Deer Hunting and Gamekeepers of Mossy Oak.
