"Continuous, passive and electronic measurement that results in stable viewing information has provided our Bakersfield stations with a competitive advantage in the marketplace over the last year. We rely on Rentrak not only for sales, but also as a strategic tool for our news and promotions. The stability of Rentrak ratings is key for growing our business, and we are eager to deploy that same advantage for KOMO in Seattle," said Randa Minkarah, Fisher's Senior Vice President of Revenue & Business Development.

"Expanding our partnership with Fisher into Seattle, and continuing in Bakersfield, is testament to the value that Rentrak's TV ratings database currency provides to the TV industry.  Fisher understands that 'business as usual' is no longer an acceptable strategy in today's challenging economic environment, and with Rentrak insights, they take the lead in bringing more stable and predictive ratings information to their agency and advertiser clients," said Steven Walsh, Rentrak's Senior Vice President of Local Television Sales.

Available in all 210 television markets, Rentrak's StationView Essentials service provides uniform measurement 365 days a year and features the only fully-integrated database of detailed satellite, telco TV and cable viewing information combined with product consumption information from over 19 million televisions nationwide.
