The Media Team is responsible for conducting the Ad Council's outreach to more than 300 U.S. media companies at the corporate level, across all platforms, promoting our 40+ national public service campaigns.

In addition to securing inventory on behalf of our public service ad (PSA) campaigns, Team Media works to develop strategic partnerships with media companies on behalf of our social causes.
