TV audience targeting has been making a splash in the political sphere. An article in AdAge yesterday detailed how TV subscriber data and voter data are being combined in order to target political TV ads to where they're most effective.
Joe Mandese's MediaPost Article on November 6 highlights findings from a new study by Jack Myers, in which he sees the conventional TV buy's slice of the more than $75 billion spent on video advertising being slightly diminished in the years to come.

But it’s important not to overlook the emergence of first-party data in the marketing scene.
