Department store magnate John Wanamaker once famously said: “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don’t know which half.” In this breakthrough study, Edison Media and Arbitron have encoded the TV commercials run by radio stations and matched them against PPM listenership.
