Among 41 traditional media companies that have a significant online ad sales presence, CBS' Interactive unit has established a dominant leadership position, followed closely by CNN.com and ESPN Customer Marketing and Sales. In the Annual Myers Survey of Advertiser and Agency Executives on Online Sales Organization Attributes, CBS ranked first in five of six attributes measured and second in the final attribute.

In this week's report available to subscribers, I share details of the recent study, focusing on the online and digital revenue organizations of 41 traditional media companies. In future weeks, additional details will be provided on 11 Online Originated Websites and 40 Emerging Online Sites and Organizations.

Fox News, Forbes.com, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Conde Nast Digital and Discovery Digital Sales also were highly rated in selected categories. The attributes evaluated in the Myers Survey are:

  • Quality Sales Organization
  • Value for the Investment
  • Valuable Content
  • Valuable Targeted Audience
  • Mass Audience Reach
  • Innovation

Following in this report is a summary ranking of the 41 Online Traditional Media Sales Organizations based on the total quantity of attributes identified by all respondents for each organization for all six attributes evaluated.

Comcast, Disney, Verizon: You’re Not So Big!
Comcast ain’t so big after all. Neither is Time Warner Cable. Or, for that matter, neither is Time Warner, or NBC, or CBS or even Murdoch et al.

The Un, Deux, Trois of Cannes
The Cannes Lions Festival annually reestablishes itself as the industry breeding ground for innovation, exploration and collaboration. 2015 certainly did not disappoint, especially for the couple who literally defined “breeding ground” on the red carpet of the Palais in the wee hours one morning. Vive la France!

Elon Musk: The Edison/Tesla//Ford of the Digital Age -- Part 2
In Part 1 of this report, I looked at the transformations Elon Musk is bringing to the automotive, battery and energy businesses.

The Amazon Effect
“For many businesses, Amazon is simultaneously a sales channel, a potential service provider and a competitive threat.” – Forrester Research

Kim Kardashian, Al Gore and Sting – All in a Week’s Work at Cannes
It’s exactly 900 meters from the Hotel Martinez to the Hotel Majestic Barriere along the Cannes Croisette. In normal conditions it’s a 10 minute stroll but the Cannes Lions are anything but normal conditions. Forty-five minutes is a safe estimate as you greet half the people you have ever met, are greeted by people who seem to think they have met you and share brief exchanges with any number of people who are looking over your shoulder in the hope that someone more interesting comes into view. (Note: That’s a drone’s-eye view of the author of this column up top.)

Emmy Awards 2015: And the Nominees Should Be … (Part 1)
The process of determining this year’s Emmy nominees has begun, and we won’t know the results until the official announcement on July 16 from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The New Normal for Online Shopping
What would you do to get a great deal online? Turns out that it's quite a lot, especially if you're a Millennial.

Dear Media: We Hoaxed You! Love, Taylor Swift and Apple Music
Was the Taylor Swift / Apple Music dust up nothing more than a premeditated hoax?

OTT w/ TiVo! Can Wi-Fi Trump Cellular?
Oh, Roamio, wherefore art thou? That’s something more cable operators (MSOs) as well as other internet service providers (ISPs) might be asking TiVo CEO Tom Rogers about. TiVo’s Roamio OTA is a set-top-box that acts as a digital video recorder for off-the-air broadcast stations. Rogers goes a lot further than just telling MSOs they can dodge retransmission fees: He suggests cable just get out of the video business and cede “TV” to over-the-top players. (Or, just go national OTT with current and/or altered bundles; can’t tell me the major MSOs haven’t run business scenarios to do just that.)

TED Women 2015: A Man's Eye-View
This year's TED Women Conference was my 20th TED and my first TED Women, where I was one of a handful of male attendees.

Stuart Elliott: When the News Makes News
The Brian Williams story continues, and with it, ever more to ponder.

"TREotM": The Seventies (with Coax)
Chapter 10, Part 5

Who Controls the Digital Eco-System?
Ever since the first man clicked on the first ever online ad, and the first blogger penned the first essay on all that’s wrong with everything digital, one question has under-pinned much of the discussion and debate. Who’s in charge?

The "Polbuzz" is Building: PBS’ "Poldark" is a Summer Sensation
A best in show has emerged from television’s busiest summer ever. The distinction may strike some as improbable during the season in which popcorn entertainment generally rules. This fine program has nothing to do with aliens, zombies, cops or killers. It is a first-class remake of a historical drama from the Seventies that probably sounds like a snooze. And while such declarations are generally a matter of individual taste, from where I sit it’s more entertaining than anything else on broadcast, cable or stream right now.
