STATE COLLEGE, PA - February 21, 2012 - A cross-platform advertising network with a rated audience of up to 117 million viewers was announced today by AccuWeather. Leveraging the attractive power of AccuWeather-branded weather, the network creates advertising opportunities that break through the noise and reach consumers at work, while shopping, or on the road.

The network combines diverse industry-leading signage networks featuring AccuWeather's compelling content with AccuWeather's own mobile and web properties to create an advertising platform with enormous reach. The network includes AccuWeather's proprietary Weather-Triggered Marketing® and other powerful targeting capabilities.

"AccuWeather content has been proven to attract and retain the attention of viewers across all media because it is created with their specific interests in mind," said Ryan Ayres, Vice President of Display Systems and Service for AccuWeather. "This presents a highly-effective advertising vehicle that reaches audiences in venues where weather is the most relevant and where the credibility created by AccuWeather's superior accuracy enhances the advertising message."

The superior accuracy of AccuWeather forecasts and data create the opportunity for AccuWeather's proprietary Weather-Triggered Marketing. This dynamically displays the best advertisements for each local market, based on changes in weather conditions, forecasts, and lifestyle weather factors such as the Arthritis Pain Forecast™ or pollen forecasts. Advertisements can be run in local markets based on geographic location, time of day and more.
