PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rentrak (NASDAQ: RENT), the leader in precisely measuring movies and TV everywhere, today announced a multi-year local TV ratings contract with Cordillera Communications for its four stations in Corpus Christi, which include KRIS (NBC), KRIS 2 (CW), KAJA (Telemundo-TV) and KDF (Independent).
The new agreement makes Corpus Christi the 12 th client market in Texas to adopt Rentrak's TV ratings currency, joining subscribers in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Tyler, Beaumont, Lubbock, Odessa, Abilene, Victoria and Waco.
"Rentrak's advanced demographic ratings available every day of the year give our stations a significant competitive advantage in this dynamic marketplace," said Greg McAlister, president and general manager of KRIS Communications. "Our advertising partners will be the clear winners as we share more accurate, precise and timely viewing measurement. Real viewership data, from thousands of Corpus Christi homes measured 24/7/365, is a giant leap from the outdated diary system. The diaries just don't deliver what Rentrak provides. We are putting a full-court press on our competition and Rentrak is an incredible strategic weapon to help make smart and impactful news, programming and promotional decisions."
"We are excited to be working together with Cordillera Communications," said Steve Walsh, executive vice president of local television at Rentrak.
