Nexstar Digital Launches Data-Driven Audience Insights Platform STELLAR

Platform enables advertisers to buy seamlessly across Nexstar’s network of television stations, websites and mobile apps

Nexstar Digital Launches Data-Driven Audience Insights Platform STELLAR

Nexstar Digital today announced the launch of STELLAR, a proprietary data-driven audience platform that gives advertisers the ability to seamlessly purchase digital and linear advertising across Nexstar’s network of 199 owned or operated television stations, 120 local web sites and 284 local news and weather mobile apps. Nexstar Digital is a division of Nexstar Media Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Nexstar Media Group, Inc.

STELLAR is a unified digital platform that enables advertisers to increase customer acquisition and deliver effective omni-channel ad campaigns by using proprietary predictive technology to determine where a brand’s advertising will perform best against campaign goals, based on context and content signals.

“As the ad technology industry continues to evolve, we’re focused on streamlining the buying process for our advertisers to provide an outcome-driven solution that meets their audience targeting needs without using cookies or other third-party identifiers,” said Karen Brophy, president, Nexstar Digital. “Our customers in the Financial Services, Retail, and Quick Service Restaurants industries have seen substantially better results using STELLAR, including an increase of as much as 40 times return on ad spend, a 30 percent increase in online orders leveraging our unique targeting capabilities, and a 40 percent increase in revenue on a per-order basis. It is exceedingly clear that STELLAR meets the needs of our customers and drives strong ROI during a time of fundamental shifts in the media industry.”

The STELLAR platform is uniquely positioned to benefit advertisers by using rich first-party data and machine learning to orchestrate and optimise omni-channel media spend in real-time, driving higher conversion rates, and providing insights that enable advertisers to truly understand the effectiveness of their campaigns. The scale of Nexstar’s owned or operated television stations, coupled with a premium extended digital network, allows STELLAR to deliver quality impressions and improved outcomes across all media types, including display, mobile, OTT, and linear.

“Our customers are looking for specific results within their advertising campaigns—this is the foundation on which STELLAR was built,” said Lori Tavoularis, chief revenue officer, Nexstar Digital. “We have the ability to deliver a significant increase in performance, as well as the ability to scale our solutions outside of Nexstar’s network and deliver stronger impact and results on ad spend.”
