FOX Broadcasting Company "Blinks" First!

[via press release from FOX]


National Radio Campaign on Clear Channel Radio Stations is First to Use Shortest Length Spots Entertainment Company Builds on Breakthrough Campaign for Last Season's "24" Debut to Support 2006 Premieres of PRISON BREAK, HOUSE and THE SIMPSONS

LOS ANGELES, SAN ANTONIO � August 21, 2006 � Clear Channel Radio and Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) today announced a first-of-its-kind national radio campaign supporting the fall season premieres of hit television series PRISON BREAK, HOUSE and THE SIMPSONS. The campaign is the first to use "blinks"- the shortest-length radio spots available.

Conceived by, and running exclusively on 1100 Clear Channel Radio stations, "blinks" now move from hot advertising concepts to reality. The first "blinks" � running every hour from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. � support tonight's premiere of PRISON BREAK. Next up will be "blinks" for the HOUSE premiere on September 5th and THE SIMPSONS premiere on September 10th.

The FOX spots combine theme music and acerbic remarks from characters to remind loyal fans to tune in, and to attract new viewers through humorous copy. The "blinks" created for each FOX premiere were a collaborative effort between Clear Channel Radio's Creative Services Group and Fox Broadcasting's radio promotion team.

Clear Channel Radio created the astonishingly short ads as tools for established brands to both reinforce their identity as well as create a fresh way to communicate with their most loyal customers. The ultra-short spots are most effectively used in combination with other length spots.

* Breaking new ground again

"FOX is again breaking new ground in the promotion of its shows with these fun 'blink' spots," said Kaye Bentley, Senior Vice President, Fox Broadcasting Company. "Like our breakthrough programming, these spots are one-of-a-kind, and through the power of radio, they will be heard across the country."

FOX and Clear Channel Radio previously collaborated on radio advertising for FOX's popular series, 24. FOX stepped up to become one of the first advertisers last year to use hourly :30 radio spots over a 24-hour period, which featured a countdown for the season premiere episode of "24."

"FOX is carving out new territory with "blinks" and demonstrating that our medium can successfully extend brands," said Jeff Howard, Regional President of Clear Channel Radio Sales. "We expect massive tune in across all of Clear Channel's formats, and that listeners will find this creative original and surprising."

Clear Channel Radio's award-winning Creative Services Group launched in 2004 with an impressive roster of creative talent focused on improving the radio listening experience and increasing value to advertisers through improved radio ads.
