APN Outdoor’s digital products were a perfect fit for this campaign because we were able to seamlessly share a number of different creative executions, tailored to local audiences. We wanted to use live updates in this campaign to highlight how digital subscriptions keep readers informed with the latest news headlines and content, which became another point of strategic alignment with APN Outdoor.”
