New Ipsos Affluent Survey Middle East results: CNN is the Middle East’s #1 international news channel

CNN is again named as the #1 international news channel in daily, weekly and monthly reach in the Ipsos Affluent Survey Middle East.

The independent industry research study shows that the CNN International TV channel reaches 21% of the Middle East’s elite population* every month. This is well ahead of Al Jazeera English (16% reach), BBC World News (12%), CNBC (10%) and Sky News (9%) **. All other international news brands are even further behind.

CNN’s monthly reach across the Middle East increases to 28% when its digital properties are added to the scale of linear TV***.

CNN is also the #1 international news brand across the region in monthly cross-platform reach amongst core audience segments of Influential Opinion Leaders (41% reach across Middle East), Luxury Consumers (33% reach), Business Decision Makers (38% reach), High Income Earners (45% reach) and International Business Travellers (37%)****. Again – this is far ahead of all other international news competitors.

“CNN has made a sustained commitment to the Middle East for many years now,” said Rani Raad, President, CNN International Commercial. “We launched CNN Arabic and have continued to invest in the service; in the last year we have unveiled new studios and facilities at our major production hubs in Abu Dhabi and Dubai; and we have moved our flagship show Connect the World to be produced and broadcast from the region. This commitment puts CNN in the unique perspective of being able to uncover stories for and about the region as part of our wider output as the world’s news leader. We are proud that this approach across TV and digital continues to resonate with Middle East audiences as well as our commercial partners across the region.” FULL POST

CNN was the number-two rated cable news network for the second quarter of 2016, which ended Sunday. CNN finished a strong number two among total viewers and adults 25-54 in both total day and prime time.

This quarter, CNN had double-digit growth across every key daypart and every weekday program compared to last year.  Among the Top 40 cable networks vs. a year ago in total day, CNN is posting the second largest growth in both adults 25-54 and total viewers.

CNN’s dayside programming (9am-4pm) had a significant advantage over MSNBC this quarter:  +35% more total viewers and a +61% advantage among adults 25-54 - also growing double-digits compared to a year ago.
