Kreeg net in mijn mailbox het bericht binnen dat Nielsen Netratings een meerderheidsaandeel heeft gekocht in Redsherrif. Interessant nieuws gegeven het feit dat beide partijen meededen aan de STIR pitch. Ben benieuwd of dit iets met elkaar te maken heeft gehad.
Het persbericht dat ik ontving ziet er als volgt uit:
