Student Winners Announced for 7th Annual Project Yellow Light Scholarship Contest to Promote Dangers of Texting and Driving

Media Partners Come Together to Prevent Distracted Driving with TV, Radio and Billboard PSAs

PR Newswire, WASHINGTON, D.C., June 8, 2018
Today the Ad Council and Project Yellow Light announced the winners of the seventh annual Project Yellow Light scholarship competition. The contest calls on students to create a TV, radio or billboard PSA (Public Service Advertisement) to educate their peers about the dangers of using mobile devices behind the wheel of a vehicle.

This year, CBS 2 New York has joined longstanding partners Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA), iHeartMedia, Mazda North American Operations, the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) and U-Haul. The winners will be unveiled today on a digital billboard in New York’s Times Square, in space donated by CCOA.

The 2018 contest received more than 1,600 submissions from 49 states and Washington, DC. Winners were selected from two age categories: high school juniors and seniors, and college students.

Project Yellow Light was established in 2007 by Julie Garner, who works at The Martin Agency, and her family in memory of her teenage son, Hunter, who was killed in a car crash.

Grand prize scholarships of $5,000 were awarded to high school student Lia Senser (Louisville, NE) and college student Victoria Williams (Bristol, VA) for their video submissions. The second-place scholarships of $2,000 were awarded to high school student Noah Anderson (Phoenix, AZ) and college student Katie Wilkerson (Savannah, GA). The third-place video scholarships of $1,000 were awarded to high school student Andie Rugg (Longmont, CO) and college student Addison Reyes-Toney (Atlanta, GA).

The billboard design prize of $2,000 each was awarded to high school student Alison Hendricks (Ocean City, NJ) and college team Kyle Pandiscio (Franklin, MA) and Emma Townsend (Shrewsbury, MA). Radio winners are high school student Sarah Pearce (Jonesboro, GA) and college student Virginia Stephens (Green Cove Springs, FL), who each received $2,000.

“We’re so proud of this year’s winners and all Project Yellow Light participants. The work they do to encourage their peers not to text and drive is so important – we are incredibly thankful for them raising their voices in this important conversation,” said Julie Garner. “And, as always, a very special thanks to our partners who make it all happen.”

Since 2011, Project Yellow Light has partnered with the Ad Council to turn the winning submissions into PSAs that receive nationwide exposure through 1,600 TV stations, iHeartRadio channels, as well as over 1,000 Clear Channel Outdoor digital billboards.

In 2016, 3,450 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. Teens are some of the worst offenders; nine percent of drivers 15 to 19 years old who were involved in fatal crashes were reported as being distracted at the time of the crash.

All scholarships are provided by U-Haul, Mazda North American Operations and iHeartRadio. U-Haul will generously provide all six first-place finishers from all three contests with a moving expense gift valid for 12 months after receipt.

A host of advertising industry executives and artists lend their time to judging submissions. This year’s panel included recording artist and songwriter Aloe Blacc; renowned filmmaker and social activist Kweku Mandela; DDB Worldwide CEO and Global President Wendy Clark; Co-Chairman and Partner of Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Jeff Goodby; NBA CMO Pam El, and representatives from The Martin Agency and Project Yellow Light partners CCOA, iHeartRadio, Mazda North American Operations, NOYS, U-Haul, and the Ad Council.

“All too often, I see families devastated by tragedies happening on the road. I’m honored to partner with others, who feel as strongly as I do, that bringing awareness to the true dangers of distracted driving will save lives,” said Alex Denis, award-winning journalist for CBS 2 New York. “That is our mission. And it has never been more important.”

“U-Haul congratulates this year’s winners and applauds the valuable message these creative students have shared with their peers,” said Stuart Shoen, U-Haul executive vice president. “Our commitment to keeping U-Haul customers and the roads safe continues to make this a great partnership, and PYL’s mission to educate and protect our children behind the wheel continues to be important and impactful.”

“Project Yellow Light is a unique campaign that gives young people the opportunity and creative freedom to bring public attention to the dangers of texting while driving — an issue facing so many of their peers. iHeartMedia is thrilled to air the two winning spots across our network of radio stations for the second year in an effort to help keep young radio listeners safe on the roads,” said Jessica King, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at iHeartMedia.

“Project Yellow Light embodies a prevention through leadership model that gives students the opportunity to positively influence their peers around one of the biggest safety threats they face – car crashes. NOYS is proud to support Project Yellow Light,” said April Rai, NOYS CEO.

Through the Stop the Texts. Stop the Wrecks. campaign, the Ad Council and NHTSA have been working together to prevent distracted driving since 2012.

Texas Center for the Missing and Clear Channel Outdoor Americas Launch Digital Billboard Campaign Timed with National Missing Children’s Day

Images of Local Missing Texas Children Will Appear on Digital Billboards Across Texas Beginning May 25, 2018

New York, NY and Houston, Texas – Today, Texas Center for the Missing (TCM) and Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA) (NYSE: CCO), subsidiary of iHeartMedia Inc., participated in press events throughout major Texas markets to launch a new digital billboard campaign calling attention to the ongoing searches for local missing children. Some families of missing children, along with local law enforcement working these unsolved cases, spoke at press events throughout the state today and urged the public to share any information they have regarding the disappearance or whereabouts of these children.

Timed to begin with National Missing Children’s Day, May 25, and running through June, CCOA will display images of missing children from San Antonio, Dallas, El Paso, and Houston on the company’s digital billboards across Texas. Radio public service announcements will also be aired on iHeart Media radio stations throughout Texas highlighting the different missing children cases for Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and El Paso.

The country is in the midst of a persistent missing and exploited children crisis nationwide, with the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) reporting over 441,165 entries for missing children in 2017. Specifically, the Texas Department of Public Safety Missing Persons Clearinghouse received 55,346 missing person reports in 2017, 41,893 of which were juveniles.

Photos are one of the most vital tools for law enforcement when searching for a missing child, and have the power to produce leads that can help law enforcement give families’ answers and help safely recover children. The new billboard campaign enables TCM to reach a broad audience across Texas by distributing photos of missing children in select areas that can aid law enforcement with a search.

“We know that photos bring missing children home and we rely on our partners like Clear Channel Outdoor Americas to help us in our mission,” said Beth Alberts, TCM CEO. “We are grateful to them for the continued support to find missing children and helping to reunite families.”

“Public safety, and child safety in particular, remains a core tenet of our corporate social responsibility efforts,” said Michelle Costa, Regional President, CCOA-South Central. “Our digital billboards have the ability to reach passersby in high-traffic areas as they are out and about. We hope our efforts can play a role in reuniting these children with their families.”

Clear Channel Outdoor Introduces CCO RADARView™: A Dynamic Campaign Planning Platform Allowing Advertisers to Visually Explore its Out-of-Home Media Mapped to Audience Behaviors, Demos and Location

Advanced OOH Advertising Solution Gives Brands Insights Across all CCO Digital/Printed Roadside and Pedestrian Inventory & Against Audience Segments for Optimal Campaign Planning

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE: May 3, 2018

New York, New YorkClear Channel Outdoor Americas  (CCOA)  (NYSE: CCO), a subsidiary of iHeartMedia Inc., today introduced RADARView™, a significant evolution of its Clear Channel Outdoor RADAR suite of Out-of-Home (OOH) advanced advertising solutions. CCO RADARView™ is a sophisticated visualization platform that gives advertisers the power to optimize their OOH campaigns by entering campaign specific information like demographics, audience segments or locations to reach consumers along the pathways most traveled.

CCO RADARView™ bolsters the company’s suite of solutions through aggregated and anonymized data, secured through consent, and directly from persistent apps running on one in four mobile devices. Additionally, this leverages mobile and digital data used today across the ad ecosystem offering advertisers an easier way to unlock the value of OOH using the same approach from the digital world but applied to the physical world’s largest screens.

This new online platform was developed in collaboration with Ubimo, a location intelligence company. Ubimo’s Polaris technology, which powers RADARView™, delivers hundreds of behavioral audience segments, with no personally identifiable information, to help brands engage with their niche consumers as they explore planning their campaigns while maximizing their return on ad spend across all CCO’s roadside and pedestrian inventory. This includes the flexibility for advertisers to choose from among the broad range of consumer segments pre-identified in RADARView™, or, to work with CCO to build custom audiences based on the brand’s specific business needs.

With CCO RADARView™, marketers can become their own mini-data scientists by better understanding where to invest their marketing spend with precision to achieve maximum engagement with their desired audiences. Brands can work in partnership with their CCO sales agent to use these insights to create campaigns that reach the right consumers with the right message and can inform their strategy with a range of proven approaches, including; store proximity, demographics, behavior and/or OOH media type.

Moreover, CCO RADARView™ complements GeoPath’s OOH foundational currency for audience impressions and market demographics with behavioral data that can be used for campaign planning and insights.

“Nearly two years ago, we gave the billboard a brain when we layered mobile insights from the digital world against the juxtaposition of our media in the physical world to understand audience travel patterns along the path to purchase,” said Scott Wells, CEO, Clear Channel Outdoor Americas. “CCO RADARView™ further demystifies OOH campaign planning for advertisers and sets the stage for them to overlay their own audience behavioral data against our media in an un-skippable, fraud-free and brand safe format. We look forward to sharing this beta release with our valued clients and integrating their feedback as we continue optimizing this tool for future use.”

“Working with CCO’s team presented a unique opportunity for us to push the boundaries of what’s possible with location intelligence. Together we’ve managed to develop one of the most innovative use cases for leveraging location data to understand consumer behavior in the real world and generate actionable insights,” says Ran Ben Yair, CEO, Ubimo.

Today, CCO RADARView’s integration of Ubimo’s persistent mobile data, increases CCO advertisers’ access to actionable insights from 1 out of 4 US mobile consumers – more than ever before–and with even more functionality and speed.

Nielsen Study Confirms Airport Advertising Drives Sales for National & Local Brands, Significantly Increasing Web and Foot Traffic and Spurring Consumers to Act

Research Report and Lyft Campaign in Austin-Bergstrom Airport Both Illustrate How Airport Advertising is Breaking Through, Reaching Travelers and Driving Engagement

Airport Media Influences Frequent Flyer Behaviors With 80% Noticing Airport Advertising, 42% Taking Action and 19% Buying a Product Advertised at the Airport  

New York, NY – – April 18, 2018 – –Clear Channel Airports (CCA), a brand division of Clear Channel Outdoor  (CCO) (NYSE: CCO), and a subsidiary of iHeartMedia Inc., announced today the results of a comprehensive consumer insights study, showing airport advertising offers consumers a great opportunity to absorb and respond to brand messaging. The CCA-commissioned Nielsen study reveals airport advertising is a highly effective media platform that reaches frequent flyers, tourists and business travelers and raises brand awareness while driving sales to local and national businesses. The study provides insights into frequent flyer responsiveness to airport advertising, the types of activities travelers engage in while waiting for their flights, and what actions consumers take after being exposed to airport advertisements such as social media activity, in-store retail shopping and e-commerce activity.

According to the study, frequent flyers are highly responsive to airport advertising, with 80% noticing the media and 42% taking action that includes visiting a website, going to a store or learning more about a product/brand/service. Nineteen percent of frequent flyers actually bought a product they saw advertised at the airport.

More specifically, airport campaigns are a significant driver of foot traffic, with 84% of frequent fliers likely to visit a restaurant, 50% likely to visit a clothing/accessories/jewelry store and 41% likely to visit a consumer electronics store.

The research report also confirms that active dwell time increases advertising exposure with 74% of frequent flyers arriving at the airport over an hour before boarding. Seventy-nine percent of frequent flyers shopped for food/beverages, 67% dined at a restaurant, 51% shopped for travel accessories/technology products/entertainment and 29% shopped duty-free. Additionally, 87% of frequent flyers spend time on their mobile devices while waiting for their flight with 36% visiting a website to find out more about products/services seen in an airport advertisement.

“This study confirms that airport advertising creates significant brand awareness and sales by helping advertisers reach highly coveted audiences such as the affluent frequent flyer and the key business decision makers around the world,” said Morten Gotterup, President of Clear Channel Airports. “At Clear Channel, our partnerships with major airports throughout the country foster some of the most influential, innovative advertising programs that enhance travelers’ experiences at the airport. We are excited about the opportunities ahead of us to work with brands on fun, experiential and impactful campaigns that build awareness and drive sales.”

Commenting on their recent VW van display campaign in Austin-Bergstrom Airport in January, Lyft Marketing Manager Will Lindow said, “I’ve always been a fan of disruptive marketing…something that interrupts the routine flow of a person or space and provides an authentic experience/moment with the brand. So I thought why not a giant pink VW in the middle of baggage claim, right?!”

Additional key survey findings show that 90% of frequent flyers are likely to dine/shop/visit brick and mortar locations after learning about them at the airport. 36% are interested in signing up for/learning about e-commerce services while at the airport. About half (48%) are interested in learning about travel rewards programs and one-third are interested in signing up for travel rewards credit cards while at the airport.

The study’s findings come on the heels of Clear Channel Airports (CCA) successfully closing on a series of impressive wins for the organization. Since 2015, CCA has announced significant new partnerships and concession renewals to provide comprehensive media programs with advanced digital capabilities to airports, including, Washington Dulles International Airport, Reagan National Airport, Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport, Punta Cana International Airport, Austin Bergstrom, Atlanta-Hartsfield International Airport, Nashville International Airport, Honolulu International Airport and Santa Barbara Airport. Other major airport partnerships include Chicago O’Hare and Denver International — two of the nation’s Top 5 busiest airports.

The proprietary Nielsen Airports Study, conducted from August 8 through 18, consisted of 1526 online survey respondents and was conducted on behalf of Clear Channel Airports.

Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. Provides Update on Form 10-K Filing

San Antonio, TX, April 3, 2018 – Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) (the “Company”) announced today that the Company will be delayed in filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”) beyond the extended deadline of April 2, 2018. As previously disclosed, the Company’s delay in filing the Form 10-K is due to the ongoing special investigation regarding the misappropriation of funds by employees of Clear Media Limited, an indirect, non-wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company whose ordinary shares are listed but suspended from trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and other matters discovered during the course of the special investigation. In light of the ongoing procedures being undertaken in connection with the special investigation, the Company was unable to file the Form 10-K by April 2, 2018. The Company will file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable.

As a result, the Company has received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria. The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE’s rules, the Company will have six months from April 3, 2018 to file the Form 10-K with the SEC. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards before that date by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC.
