 1. Publishers are justifying big budgets for NewFronts 2016 


NewFronts season has officially touched down in New York City. Top publishers from around the world are presenting new content and formats to thousands of potential and existing buyers. Spectacular venues, celebrity DJs and endless drinks; publishers  are sparing no expense. There is however a method to their madness and AdAge gives their take on exactly what it is. 

2. Are you on the right side of programmatic standards?

While the Media Rating Council does their due diligence to set standards, there are a few areas which are yet to be regulated. Media Post identifies some of those loopholes to help you avoid falling into them.

3.  Content and Monetization: Putting your audience first
