Across town, NBC affiliate KSNV signed on with Rentrak Oct. 1, after its Nielsen contract expired. Most Rentrak clients in local TV continue to receive Nielsen ratings.
KLAS is in the midst of a multi-year contract with Nielsen; Emily Neilson, president and general manager of KLAS, described Rentrak as a "supporting service" to Nielsen. "Rentrak provides a bigger picture of our viewers and their buying habits. With this information, we can help our clients maximize their marketing dollars with more precise targeting," said Neilson.
StationView Essentials incorporates ratings information from over 20 million televisions, including those hooked up to satellite, telco and cable.
"As the 200th station to subscribe to Rentrak, the signing of KLAS marks a major achievement for the Rentrak's local currency adoption," said Cathy Hetzel, corporate president and president of advanced media and information at Rentrak.
