Patriot Media Group, The Weather Channel and Caption Colorado will partner to provide best-in-class captioning service for hearing impaired.

Patriot Media Group, a division of U.S. International Media and a leading source for innovative short-form commercials placed within program content, is pleased to announce it has been appointed as the sales representative company for The Weather Channel’s Closed Captioning (‘CC”) sponsorships.

“We are excited to partner with Patriot Media Group and Caption Colorado to bring the best in class captioning services to The Weather Channel,” said Jeremy Jones, director of television products for The Weather Channel. “Keeping people prepared and safe during severe weather events is our most important responsibility, and this partnership allows us to reach everyone.”

Weekly sponsorship packages are available, enabling one advertiser to be the exclusive captioning sponsor to The Weather Channel during any given week. Spots will air across a variety of day parts, and include a 5-second billboard and short tagline featuring the advertisers’ logo and pre-produced audio copy, similar to… “Closed Captioning on The Weather Channel is brought to you by (advertiser name/tagline),” immediately followed by the advertiser’s 10-second spot. The captioning sponsorship will air near the top of each hour.

“We’re pleased to assist The Weather Channel in bringing important breaking weather trends to the hearing impaired,” said Steve Berger, President of Patriot Media Group. “This is an exciting public service, which advertisers are eager to be a part of,” Berger said.
