Veterinarians are taking to the airwaves in a big way. In just six months, the Veterinary News Network (VNN) has generated more than 280 million consumer impressions, making it one of the largest providers of animal health news stories in the country. It expects to easily surpass 500 million consumer impressions during its reporting year. Both are record numbers for the organization which began producing animal health news stories in 2005.
“With 325 media trained veterinarians living and working in virtually every major U.S. media market, we’re able to deliver reliable, accurate and timely animal health news stories to consumers direct from the experts they trust most,” says Dr. Jim Humphries, VNN President and News Director. “And, we’ve strengthened and grown our delivery system to reach consumers through traditional local television and radio broadcasts as well as through in-clinic networks and a wide variety of Internet outlets.”
VNN has produced more than 60 two-minute animal health news stories and produces two new stories each month. Each video focuses on a current animal health or veterinary medical topic. VNN videos are available to view or download at many popular Web sites including http://www.youtube.com and http://www.podcastgo.com/vnn.
