Nexstar Digital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nexstar Media, entered into a multiyear partnership with Mediaocean and its Connect Partner Program.

The partnership will let advertisers use Mediaocean’s Spectra Platform to access Nexstar’s OTT, digital video, display, streaming audio and linear broadcast advertising inventory. Nexstar said its audience reached across 115 markets, 317 mobile apps, and 142 websites, reaching 63% of U.S. TV households.

As part of this partnership, Mediaocean has fully integrated Nexstar Digital’s video and OTT inventory into its Spectra Platform. That means agencies can now use Spectra to discover, customize and access the complete suite of Nexstar Media Group’s advertising inventory, and tap into Nexstar Digital’s first-party data, technology and creative.
