ABC TELEVISION NETWORK WINS TOP HONOR AS HIGHEST-RATED MEDIA COMPANY IN 2011 ADVERTISER PERCEPTIONS POLL

Survey Also Found ABC No. 1 in Both Brand Strength and Sales Knowledge For Broadcast Television

Network Won More Categories Than Any Other Media Company

The ABC Television Network has won the top award as the Highest-Rated Media Company in the 2011 Advertiser Perceptions Intelligence Report, a far-reaching survey of leading advertisers in the United States. ABC also ranked No. 1 in the Brand Strength and Sales Knowledge in the Broadcast Television category, and won more categories overall than any other media company.

ABC was selected as the overall No. 1 media company, out of more than 25 media companies, and more than 500 media brands, measured across all media, including broadcast, cable, print, digital, mobile and other advertising networks. This prestigious award was determined based on responses from more than 2000 media decision makers about their perceptions of the media company that's highest rated across two waves (spring and fall 2011). The award recognizes the combination of the following metrics: "A good company with which to do business," its delivery of "ad results" and overall "customer service."

The Brand Strength metric was assessed based on the combination of audience composition, reach, image and advertising results. For Sales Knowledge, the recognition was based on the following attributes: "understands advertiser products and brands"; "knows the assets of their media property" and "knows the advertiser's market and competition."

Conducted by the firm Advertiser Perceptions, various media brands are recognized as "Highest Rated" based on advertisers' brand perceptions and overall satisfaction with those companies. Every spring and fall, Advertiser Perceptions surveys leading advertisers in the United States to gather their opinions and perceptions of the media brands they are considering for advertising. Through the Advertiser Intelligence Reports (AIR), these advertiser opinions provide the basis for "insight-metrics" used to measure media brand and media company performance. The media brands and company that rank highest for each "insight-metric," and that possess a minimum required level of advertiser consideration, are selected as the highest-rated media brands. The categories that were surveyed include Brand Strength, Sales Knowledge, Customer Service, Advertiser Satisfaction, and overall Media Company.
