Tunity, an out-of-home TV analytics company, said it has added former ESPN research executive Artie Bulgrin to its advisory board.

The Tunity advisory board provides the Company’s leadership team with key insights and direction on industry best practices, measurement advancements, consumer behaviors, and client feedback.

“Artie’s deep experience leading network television research teams, working across viewing platforms, and providing key insights to valued partners makes him the perfect addition to the Tunity advisory board,” said Yaniv Davidson, co-founder and CEO of Tunity. “He shares our passion for measuring the extensive out-of-home viewing already taking place in today’s fragmented TV landscape making his counsel a key ingredient as we grow and tailor our unique offering.”

“Having worked on out-of-home measurement solutions for over 20 years I know how valuable these viewers are and how they extend the reach for advertisers, but effective measurement has always been a challenge,” said Bulgrin. “Tunity is a breakthrough technology that provides a valuable service to out-of-home viewers, while also capturing detailed data on viewing behavior. I am excited to join the advisory team and look forward to helping advance this service and its insights in the marketplace.”
