PublicRelay, the transformative PR monitoring and analytics solution for communications professionals in the Fortune 500, government, and non-profit sectors, today introduced the expansion of its product services to include radio and TV broadcast monitoring and analytics.

This partnership with global media intelligence platform Critical Mention adds to PublicRelay’s existing online, print, and social media capabilities. The new TV and radio monitoring feature now gives users a broader set of relevant coverage in a powerful yet simple interface. As it does with other media channels, PublicRelay provides not only noise-free, relevant video/audio clips (with transcribed text), but also accurate message and tone analytics every day.

“Critical Mention captures 44 hours of video every minute – more than YouTube ingests during the same period– and PublicRelay provides editorial knowledge, filtering and high-touch service for organizations demanding superior data quality and news intelligence,” said Andrew Koeck, vice president of business developments and partnerships for Critical Mention. “We believe PublicRelay will make strong use of the Critical Mention API to further their impressive growth.”

PublicRelay’s broadcast monitoring and analytics seamlessly work with Critical Mention’s coverage capabilities, which captures television 24 hours a day from hundreds of sources, including international content from Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Middle East, and radio from across the top 50 U.S. markets.

“The integration of broadcast monitoring further solidifies PublicRelay’s position as the premier monitoring and measurement solution for smart PR and marketing professionals” PublicRelay Managing Partner Eric Koefoot stated. “Combined with PublicRelay’s market-leading suite of message, share-of-voice, and influencer analytics, customers can now enjoy single-point access to a 360-degree view of their issues, messages, and influencers and can rest assured that they will not get caught off guard.”

Broadcast monitoring is an integral part of PublicRelay’s suite of monitoring and analytics services that together deliver the most insightful, yet easiest to use, media intelligence for PR and corporate communications professionals.
