“One of the reasons why we are so committed to the work with Nielsen on the Nielsen ONE Alpha with companies like Google and some of the other holding companies is because we really believe that we have to have a vested, proactive approach to what the future of that currency looks like… As currency moves toward impression-based models, think about the impact to live, to sports, we feel a responsibility to forward currency.
