Company: TEGNA (formerly Gannett)
Opportunity: Coinciding with the recent hire of CMO Colette LaForce (research OMD, which already handled traditional media. Sellers – Cars.com’s largely targets millennial males and tends to lean heavily on direct response. While planning historically takes place mid-summer, it wouldn’t be surprising if recommendations still haven’t been made yet because of the arrival of LaForce and this digital transition. Furthermore, display has shifted heavily to programmatic this year compared to 2014.
