NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- If 2013 taught us anything, it was that even the biggest brands are not immune to reputational issues and crises. From ill-conceived tweets to slow responses to customer issues, many events emphasized the need for a brand to have a reputation management and media monitoring strategy; it is not enough to be simply reactive, the best companies are proactive.

Multimedia Content Requires Multimedia Monitoring
PR Newswire announced access to new radio content in its MediaVantage monitoring platform, available as an add-on content set, strengthening its already robust line-up of print, online and social content. Marketing and communications professionals will now be able to monitor key issues and topics across all media, helping to identify trends that can affect their business and proactively manage a crisis. As multimedia becomes a driving force in producing messages that generate pick-up and coverage across multiple channels, increased access to audio and video monitoring will help clients track successful communications efforts across media types.

"Since its inception, MediaVantage  has helped brands understand their place in the media landscape," said Martin Murtland, Senior Vice President, Platforms & Data, PR Newswire. "Radio is showing resurgence, in the number of FM channels and growth in online radio streaming subscriptions. With access to radio content, MediaVantage clients can round out their monitoring efforts and take action on conversations as they develop."
