As part of our commitment to providing our partners with the technology to successfully serve and manage ad experiences across all CTV environments, we are proud to announce a new partnership with WPSD Local 6 (part of Paxton Media Group LLC) to accelerate their CTV strategy.

"We're thrilled to collaborate with the team at WPSD Local 6 and help grow their CTV advertising revenue with advanced ad serving controls that improve the streaming experience for their advertisers and audiences," said Ben Antier, Co-Founder and CEO, Publica.

eMarketer estimates that U.S. CTV advertising revenue will grow by 67.7% by the end of 2023 to reach $24.2 billion.
