And you've probably read here that I've argued that this should be the case for Omaha's TV Market for years..
You'll have to contact Nielsen and convince them to pull their heads out mrsticka ...
Like they'll listen to me.
You'll never know unless you try...
What would I say?
You could reason that geographically, Omaha/Lincoln being 45 minutes apart, should have a combined television market covering the eastern 1/3rd of Nebraska, along with the current counties in Western Iowa and one in Missouri. You could reason that the Tri-City TV Market (Grand Island/Kearney/Hastings) cover the middle 1/3rd to western front range..then the Western 1/3rd could be covered partially by North Platte..although Western Nebraska is dominated by the Denver and Rapid City, SD markets currently, so the western 1/3rd could remain the same..
This explanation makes the most common sense..
And of course, you should probably end with- Please? ...
Okay. Makes sense.
Keep us posted on your progress with Nielsen ...
