Rentrak Adds Two Green Bay Stations With WCWF-TV And WLUK-TV

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak (NASDAQ: RENT), the leader in precisely measuring movies and TV everywhere, serving the advertising, television and movie industries, today announced a multi-year local TV ratings contract with LIN Media for WLUK-TV (FOX) and WCWF-TV (CW) in Green Bay, Wis.

WLUK-TV and WCWF-TV will utilize Rentrak's local TV ratings currency, including the match of viewing to automotive purchase information and "in-market" affinity insights, as well as political segmentations.  With Rentrak, the stations will be able to sell inventory more effectively by quantifying not only the true size of audiences across all dayparts and programs, but also by demonstrating the value and ROI that the stations provide to their agency and direct advertising clients.

"LIN Media has been a terrific partner of Rentrak's since they signed their first three markets with us in 2010 and we are very happy to welcome their Green Bay stations to Rentrak's family of clients," said Steve Walsh, executive vice president of Rentrak local market television.
