OXYGEN MEDIA PARTNERS WITH BRACH'S AS SPONSOR OF FRESHMAN DOCU-SERIES "THE NEXT BIG THING: NY"

Oxygen Chosen as Sole Broadcast Partner for 2012 Campaign

NEW YORK - APRIL 25, 2012 - Oxygen Media today announced a key sponsorship with new advertiser Brach's(R) candy, which chose Oxygen as their sole broadcast partner for their 2012 brand messaging campaign. As part of the brand's efforts to transition to a younger target consumer, Brach's will partner with Oxygen for an innovative, multi-platform marketing partnership for the docu-series premiere of "The Next Big Thing: NY," which includes an in-store activation. The announcement was made prior to a star-studded Upfront party at the Dream Hotel's Penthouse in New York City, which will celebrate the network's 22 new advertisers in 2012, including Ford and Toshiba.

"The momentum remains strong following a breakout year for the network," said Jason Klarman, President, Oxygen Media. "Deep, multiplatform partnerships like this are what drive results with our engaged and passionate viewers."

A unique sponsorship, Brach's, an iconic candy company, will work with Oxygen on a season-long campaign for "The Next Big Thing: NY," which features Trapper Felides, a top New York City performance coach and musical director, who gives his clients the blunt truth and tough love they need to succeed.

"This one of a kind series sponsorship represents a tremendous opportunity for Oxygen's advertisers," said Michael DuPont, Vice President, National Ad Sales, Oxygen Media. "Targeted sponsorships plug advertisers directly into Oxygen's audience of young women who are going through key transitions in their lives, including landing their first real job, getting married, and starting a family. As such, they are highly consumptive - purchasing products and services they need in each of these life stages - and are open to new brands and messaging."

Marketing partnership efforts will include on-air, online and VOD sponsorship, as well as a sweepstakes and co-branded in-store activation:

· On-Air: A custom co-branded spot will reinforce Brach's "Give A Little Brach's Because..." brand messaging. The spot will feature a star of the series as they interact with Brach's product and are rewarded for their passion and dedication to becoming "The Next Big Thing." This will serve as Brach's on-air media spot and run during Brach's commercial time. This 30-second co-branded spot will launch on-air in conjunction with the promotion for the series, and will also live on VOD and stream online at Oxygen.com.

· Character Vignettes: Oxygen will develop several Character Vignettes that will showcase the series' cast and run on-air as well as on VOD.

· Custom Sweepstakes: Oxygen's "Give a Little Brach's Because..." sweepstakes will encourage viewers to nominate a person in their lives that "Deserves a Little Brach's." The grand prize winner will receive a trip to NYC to see a Broadway play starring a cast member of "The Next Big Thing: NY," while a number of runners-up will win a year's worth of Brach's candy, along with gift certificates for a Brach's retail partner.

· In-Store Activation: The cross-platform promotion will extend to more than 10,000 retail stores nationwide, where Brach's and Oxygen co-branding will be visible on shelf talkers and end cap displays.

· Online: On the digital side, Brach's will sponsor the premiere and finale episodes of OxygenLive that will serve to connect viewers with the series' stars.

"Brach's is very excited for this unique sponsorship with Oxygen Media," said Liam Killeen, CEO, Brach's. "The partnership is a perfect fit as we transition our brand and target a younger demographic."
