NEW YORK, October 17, 2017 – LexisNexis has chosen Critical Mention, a full-service media monitoring company, to bolster the real-time television and radio broadcast coverage in its media intelligence solution.

Alex Schwendtner, General Manager of Media Intelligence at LexisNexis said:

“As a leading provider of global media content, we pride ourselves on offering the broadest array of content options possible. The addition of Critical Mention’s broadcast content into LexisNexis Newsdesk as an option for our customers is a valuable accompaniment to the strong set of global broadcast content available in the tool.”

The Critical Mention broadcast package includes coverage across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. from more than 2,200 sources. The addition of Critical Mention’s coverage helps strengthen the existing global broadcast content available within LexisNexis Newsdesk.
