Rapid Record-Level Digital Audience Growth and Recognition

AccuWeather continues to set significant record-setting growth rates increasing users by more than 50% across AccuWeather.com, due to the high demand and appeal of targeted, relevant weather content with Superior Accuracy™. This tremendous digital leadership and growth demonstrate the global need for personalized weather information that people can use to improve their lives.

Recently, Barry Lee Myers, Chief Executive Officer of AccuWeather, shared important insights into the unique value that AccuWeather provides to digital advertisers in his Keynote Interview at the Publishing Insider Summit on the strengths and opportunities of data-driven advertising for publishers and advertisers.

“The availability of more targeted data and automated systems for ad placement and optimization is creating new opportunities for advertisers. Publishers need to adapt to the changes in the advertising industry to remain competitive,” Myers said. “AccuWeather is setting new standards with its innovative approach to personalized, data-driven targeting and multiple world-class advertising platforms to give unmatched value in campaign effectiveness to advertisers. I’m pleased to share some of our best practices with other leading publishers.”
