Videa, which is owned by Cox Media Group, reached 174 participants, including media agency as well as TV station members and representatives, in an online survey from September 2017 to March 2018.

According to the survey, more than 80 percent said that pricing transparency was important, and 75 percent said, after a period of no progress, they agreed the nature of buying and selling local TV inventory had changed in recent years.
