NewsTicker Closings

Deliver fast to air, web and mobile

The fastest way to get an organization from the point of closure to your air.

School closings are very competitive since they are an extension of your station's weather brand that commands a large audience during the critical early morning news time. There is a drive to be first and most complete. 

Even in a world of social media, industry research continues to show that people prefer to get their school closing notifications from watching television. 

Any system can take in automated information and display it in a loop. You see that on every station in a market. But, you can't claim to be the fastest if your system doesn't get it on air first. 

NewsTicker Closings is the fastest way to get an organization from the point of closure to your air, potentially within seconds. Win more viewers with our innovative market-proven display solutions.
