Cartoon Network’s Owners Turner Launches T1 Digital Advertising Sales Division

Turner has merged their international Digital Advertising Sales operations into one single division called “T1”, the new division will be in-charge of digital and linear advertising sales and CNNIC (CNN International Commercial) operations across Latin America; Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific regions. T1 aims to connect global advertisers that are based outside the United States with Turner’s widely distributed international brands including Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN, TNT, TBS, Bleacher Report, Great Big Story and many more. Turner USA also has a similar advertising division called Turner Ignite.

T1 provides creative and data-driven advertising solutions, which includes bespoke advertising campaigns featuring branded content and product placement. These campaigns can be scaled down to a region or country level or even different audience demographics across a variety of digital devices including mobiles and PCs. T1 is a spin-off of CNNIC and is created and led by the President of CNNIC – Rani Raad, with Rob Bradley, Vice President of Digital Commercial Strategy and Digital Advertising Sales of CNNIC overseeing T1’s operations.

From The Turner International (EMEA/APAC/LA) Press Release: Turner International is for the first time providing advertisers with a single way to activate a full suite of global, regional and local campaigns that connect with fans across Turner’s digital properties spanning over 200 countries.

The launch of Turner International Digital Advertising Sales – T1 – consolidates Turner’s international digital advertising capabilities into a single division, complementing existing local digital and linear advertising sales and CNN International Commercial (CNNIC) operations across Latin America, EMEA and APAC. T1’s focus is on connecting global advertisers based outside the US with audiences across Turner’s entertainment, kids, news and sports digital portfolio including Bleacher Report, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN, ELEAGUE, TNT, TBS, Great Big Story, Esporte Interativo as well as COPA90, which Turner has a stake in.

T1 offers brands a rich suite of creative and data-driven advertising solutions – from forging far-reaching strategic partnerships to creating bespoke campaigns that include branded content, native and product placement, as well as pre-roll and display inventory across the Turner International digital portfolio. The unit is designed to work with major brands on a wide range of campaigns that can scale multiple regions, be highly targeted to specific countries, or utilise particular Turner properties to reach defined audience demographics and clusters in brand-safe premium mobile, desktop and social environments.

T1 is borne out of the successful digital strategy devised by CNNIC – the arm of Turner International that monetises all CNN properties outside of the US – to combine data and content solutions to grow partnerships between CNN and international advertisers. Using this blueprint, T1 is created and led by Rani Raad, President of CNNIC.

The unit comprises a specialist team of sales, consultancy and operations experts working closely with Turner International’s leadership, technology, advertising, product and editorial teams to increase monetisation opportunities around digital properties. Overseeing T1 operations is Rob Bradley, Vice President of Digital Commercial Strategy and Digital Advertising Sales for both CNNIC and T1.

Underpinning T1 is a unified advertising technology platform to enable creative campaigns that reach highly defined premium audiences at huge scale. The division also draws on existing Turner solutions such as Launchpad, the social media amplification tool which leverages data across the company’s 750M global social followers to deliver branded content to like-minded groups on social media.

“T1 is the embodiment of the ‘One Turner’ philosophy at the heart of our company as we create new ways to best serve our audiences and commercial partners,” said Rani Raad. “The creation of this division unlocks a vast premium digital portfolio in order to bring new, innovative solutions to the market. Drawing on the multi-platform strategy that has driven growth at CNNIC, we look forward to establishing ground-breaking partnerships with brands who want to be part of the new content frontiers that Turner brands are pushing right across the world.”

Cartoon Network And Nintendo Partner For We Bare Bears Themed Marketing Campaign

Major Japanese video-game company – Nintendo has partnered with Cartoon Network USA for a marketing campaign to help promote games for their latest video games console – the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has uploaded videos onto its YouTube channel featuring the three tech and social media loving bears – Grizzy, Panda and Ice Bear from We Bare Bears trying out two of Nintendo’s newest games – the unusual motion control boxing game ARMS and the fun multiplayer ink-splat shooter – Splatoon 2. The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid game console, it can be used as as portable device or as a conventional console. Much like Cartoon Network, Nintendo is known for its family-friendly entertainment, making it an ideal partnership. Remember, games are supposed to be fun, please don’t be a sore loser like Nom Nom. 😀

Personally, as a Nintendo Switch owner and a Cartoon Network fan, the advertising campaign is pretty cool. 🙂
