Venture is certainly very compelling at present also in Europe."
...Spotting a change in how people watched TV meant that "advertisers can now use convergence to target them in more innovative ways"
"That second bridge (Cedar Street Bridge) is a killer," Bradley told 1470 & 100.3 WMBD. "It goes up and then goes up again. That will really kick you in the butt."
"It also helps to drive the consumer closer to the point of purchase. Something advertisers have been trying for a while with more traditional TV advertising methods."
