KEY QUESTION: What is media monitoring? Media monitoring is a service used to track specific news across all media, including TV, radio, web, social and print. Through scheduled reports and online platforms, users can see, review, share, and analyze their media as it pertains to their communications effort. Often referred to as a “listening platform”, the more comprehensive services offer ongoing support, training and measurement of your media results and outcomes.


“Universal helps me do my job by quickly and courteously getting me the clips that my clients and I need. They serve an essential role that our organization could not accomplish without them.”
