Asbury Park, NJ, Sept 9, 2013 -- Rasmussen Reports today announced that the company’s syndicated television show “What America Thinks with Scott Rasmussen,” which ended its nationwide television station distribution in July 2013, will re-launch later this Fall in online video format, further enriching the digital content available at www.RasmussenReports.com.
The new digital online video program, entitled “What America Thinks,” will offer insights into current events and the public-opinion surveys for which Rasmussen Reports is well known.
In its infancy, the new “What America Thinks” online video programming will be available anywhere on-demand by computer and mobile devices via Rasmussen Reports. Looking forward, this proprietary digital video content opens up opportunities to enhance our existing partnerships and explore opportunities with other multimedia distribution channels.
Ted Carroll, a partner at the company’s majority investor, Noson Lawen Partners, added “The expansion of our digital programming is in keeping with the board’s long-term vision of expanding the company’s brand to a variety of multimedia platforms. ‘What America Thinks’ will also cover topics beyond the field of politics, including employment, consumer confidence and social opinions.”
Rasmussen Reports’ deep library of over a decade of highly detailed daily U.S. public opinion data is unmatched in the marketplace. Noson Lawen will continue to invest in the company’s growth in the form of enhanced polling techniques, interactive charting tools for users, new polling topics and changes to the way information is presented.
