THE CW RE-TEAMS WITH MEDIAVEST FOR NEW INSTALLMENT OF THE "CWH" CONTENT WRAP
New Wrap Sponsored by Procter & Gamble's Herbal Essences To Air During "America's Next Top Model" Premiere on February 28
February 21, 2007 (Burbank, California) ?? The CW Network and MediaVest once again partner for a brand new content wrap, which will air during the eighth cycle premiere of "America's Next Top Model," on Wednesday, Feb 28 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET).
This new content wrap features the latest installment of the branded entertainment and popular culture mini-magazine, CWH, entitiled "C What's Hot," "C What's Happening," and "C What's Hip." The latest CWH spotlight, sponsored by Procter & Gamble's Herbal Essences, provides viewers with fashion advice and hair styling tips to prepare them for the coming beach season. This marks the fifth content wrap to be completed and aired by The CW, and the fourth to be produced through the network's partnership with MediaVest.
Mediavest was the initial partner for The CW's first content wrap, which aired on the night of The CW's launch (Sept. 20, 2006) during the seventh cycle premiere of "America's Next Top Model" and was also sponsored by Procter & Gamble's Herbal Essences. The results of this groundbreaking concept cumulatively delivered 100% retention of "Top Model's" women 18-34 audience throughout the night.
Of the four content wraps that The CW has aired, each was specifically designed and done in conjunction with four different brands to target four different demos on four different nights of the network's schedule. Each wrap produced the same desired result, 100% audience retention or better out of the program they were scheduled around.
In addition to the on-air component, the CWH franchise, a MediaVest exclusive franchise, maintains a comprehensive online presence on The CW website (http://www.cwtv.com/), including a CWH blog and newsletter, which is regularly updated with news and features about fashion trends, beauty tips and entertainment news.
