Lately, the trade press of media and advertising has focused on issues such as hypertargeting, sales activation, walled gardens, and direct brands.

It’s hard to argue with statistics: The forecast is for television advertising spending to remain flat to declining through 2022 (eMarketer, 2018). Diminished viewer interest is reinforced by the Pew Research Center, which found that fewer Americans (just 31 percent) are saying television would be “very hard” to give up (Perrin, 2018).
