Cynopsis: Multi-Cultural & International
Good Morning. It's Monday, November 6, 2006, and this is your first early morning Multi-Cultural briefing.
ESPN and the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League signed a deal to bring winter league baseball from Venezuela to the network for the first time. Under the terms of the agreement, ESPN Deportes will have the exclusive media rights, airing one regular-season game per week, plus exclusive rights to selected playoff games and Championship Series coverage. ESPN Deportes Radio and ESPNdeportes.com will also have the opportunity to use the games. As a result of this new acquisition, the Dominican Baseball League games' Wednesday airing will be rescheduled to Friday nights at 630p. The first Venezuelan baseball game will air on November 8.
New Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc. has inked a new four-year multi-million dollar deal with Sesame Workshop to be a sponsor in the U.S. for both Sesame Street and Plaza Sesamo. Additionally, New Balance will serve as the exclusive national sponsor of Sesame Street Presents: The Body, an interactive touring exhibit, for 2007-1010. The TV sponsorship, which begins this month and runs through December 2007, launches today with a New Balance Kids (:15) bi-lingual spot (English/Spanish) that will air at the top and bottom of the hour of the 1-hr series on PBS stations. Also included under the partnership New Balance will be integrated into several online elements, including on sesamestreet.com, and print campaigns that will run in Sesame Street magazine and Sesame Street newsletters. New Balance will also be integrated into areas of Sesame Street Presents: The Body, which is part of Sesame Workshop's Healthy Habits/Habitos Saludables para Toda La Vida initiative, and New Balance will also work with Ryan Partnership to mesh the sponsorship into activities at select retailers. A Spanish-language version of Sesame Street , Plaza Sesamo's is co-produced by Sesame Workshop and Mexico's Televisa, and airs in select PBS markets.
Bromley Communications received a subpoena last week to divulge information about its media buying for Univision's networks over the past decade as the Hispanic agency gets caught in the middle of the well-known Univision-Grupo Televisa legal battle. The Publicis-owned agency announced that it will comply with the action. The reason for subpoena stems from issues with a provision in the two companies' Program License Agreement which states that Univision must pay the Mexican media company 7.5% of combined net time sales. The dispute in this case rises from correct sales amount questions according to HispanicAd.
Univision's telecast of the 7th Annual Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday night reached over 11.3 million viewers with 5.7 million average viewers and was also the #1 program in its time period in a number of major markets among key demos including A18-34, 18-49, and Teens 12-17, regardless of language. According to Nielsen Media Research's Fast NTI Ratings, the broadcast attracted the highest audience of Teens 12-17 in the history of the Latin Grammy Awards, with an 57% increase over last year's event. In LA, the program was #1 for the time period among Persons 2+ and A18-34, 18-49, and Teens 12-17, regardless of language. In New York, the program was #1 among A18-34, 18-49, and Teens 12-17 as well. It was also #1 among A18-34 in Chicago, Dallas, and San Francisco, and it was #1 in Households in Miami.
