After two tough and pandemic-disrupted years, the March madness we all know so well returns.

The 2022 Men’s NCAA Tournament begins Thursday on CBS Sports and Turner Sports. Disney properties ABC and ESPN will air the women’s NCAA tournament starting on Friday.

Paramount Global and WarnerMedia executives spoke on Tuesday to promote March Madness, which promises to pour nearly $1 billion in ad revenue into the men’s side.

“The country is ready for the [NCAA] tournament,” CBS Sports President Sean McManus said.

“We’re back to normal,” added Turner Sports President Lenny Daniels. “And we want to take that and go further.”

The networks lost the 2020 NCAA tournament due to Covid. The 2021 event took place in a bubble and saw the Baylor Bears claim their first NCAA men’s basketball championship.

But this year’s tournament will feature the return of legendary programs Duke and Kentucky — both missed last year’s tournament — and legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski chasing his last title with the Blue Devils.

Can the men’s tournament attract 20 million viewers?

The production of this year’s NCAA tournament isn’t changing too much. Games will once again feature a virtual on-field timer. There will be in-game coaching interviews and Final Four matches will see rail and aerial cameras integrated into the broadcasts.

But will there be more viewers than last year?

The 2021 NCAA Championship game between undefeated Gonzaga and Baylor averaged 16.9 million viewers for CBS Sports, a 14% drop from the 2019 game. It was also the least-watched championship aired on CBS since the network began airing the games in 1982 .

The 2021 Men’s Final Four matches averaged 14.9 million viewers.

The NCAA Men’s Tournament returns to Turner Sports this year for the first time since 2018, when Villanova defeated the University of Michigan. This title match drew around 16.5 million viewers.

CBS and Turner have been running the Final Four since 2016. The last time the NCAA Men’s Championship game topped 20 million was in 2017 when the University of North Carolina took on Gonzaga. This game attracted about 22 million viewers.

On Tuesday’s call, McManus reportedly wouldn’t predict viewership around the 2022 tournament, but added “good games, good storylines, and as we know, when a Cinderella shows up, it’s good for ratings.

He also noted that bigger programs returning to the tournament should help the viewership. In addition, the measurement company Nielsen will combine Outside the house hearing with the final measures. Out-of-home TVs are counted in places like airports, restaurants, and sports bars. Nielsen previously only provided in-home measurements for its linear television reporting.

McManus said Nielsen’s decision to combine the metrics is “good for the network and good for our sponsors, and it really provides an accurate count of how many people are consuming our content.”

On the women’s side, Disney is hoping to top last year’s title match between Arizona and Stanford. The pageant averaged 4 million viewers and has been the most-watched women’s pageant since 2014.

The 2021 women’s semifinals with Stanford and South Carolina averaged 1.6 million viewers, while the University of Connecticut’s loss to Arizona drew 2.6 million viewers, up by 24% compared to the second semi-final of 2019. Sweet 16 games broadcast on ABC, ESPN and ESPN2 averaged 918,000 viewers, an increase of 67% compared to 2019.

March Madness commercials are sold out

Advertising inventory around the 2022 men’s tournament has run out, said John Bogusz, executive vice president of CBS Network’s sales division. Thirty-second spots for the tournament range from hundreds of thousands of dollars in earlier rounds to over $2 million for the NCAA title game.

Bogusz said the automotive, insurance and fast food categories are “very active and very strong this year.” Movie studios are also returning to rotating ads, while travel and tech companies will also promote around games.

TV Ad Measurement Company I spot ad spend estimates around the 2021 men’s basketball tournament were around $1.05 billion, a 21.4% increase from the 2019 tournament. The company told CNBC that AT&T was the biggest spender with $74.7 million on ads around the 2021 tournament. Capital One spent $48.7 million on ads, Geico ($46.7 million), Buick ($39.5 million dollars) and Progressive ($37.7 million).

Briefed on the estimates and asked if ad spend around the 2022 men’s tournament would top $1 billion, Bogusz didn’t reveal details but added that the projection was “within range.”

“It’s pretty impressive,” Turner Sports chief revenue officer Jon Diament said, referring to ad spend. Diament noted the time the networks have to deliver the games – “three weeks of activity…it’s pretty remarkable that we can gobble up that money in just three weeks of flying.”

Last September, the NCAA declared the 2022 NCAA Women’s Tournament to be included in the March Madness brand. The decision has come after mounting pressure and criticism on the organization’s initial stance on using the brand only for the men’s tournament.

EPSN said he also sold his inventory for the women’s tournament. Twenty-two advertisers, including Apple, General Motors, Target and T-Mobile, will run ads during the games.

The sports program advertising market remains a top purchase for advertisers. The National Football League Super Bowl remains the most expensive inventory. CNBC’s parent company, NBCUniversal, billed about $6.5 million for Super Bowl 56 ads, and some brands paid a record $7 million for a 30-second ad.

Yet the high prices of sports programs do not deter companies. Bogusz said “advertisers in all demo groups are allocating extra dollars” to buy inventory.

“It offers the best drama in all of television, and for many advertisers, it’s still the most engaging programming you can have,” McManus said. “And that includes the NCAA Tournament.”

When asked if the NCAA Men’s Tournament will increase to $3 million per 30 seconds when CBS returns to the event in 2023, Bogusz replied, “I wouldn’t say it would be that high. But we plan to increase prices as we continue to move forward.

War contingency plans

As the networks welcome a return to normalcy for March Madness, contingency plans are in place to update major news at the moment – Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“There are bigger things going on in the world right now than the NCAA Tournament,” McManus said. “Nobody will claim that the action on the ground is as important as the life and death action that is taking place in Ukraine,” he added.

McManus referenced the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 to explain how the network would approach coverage. He said the networks would update the war in Ukraine as needed and “handle it in the best possible way”.

“We have two of the best production companies and two of the best news agencies,” Daniels added, referring to CBS News and CNN. “I think we will make the right decisions.”

If your savings account seems thin or nonexistent, you’re definitely not alone. It has been reported that around 50% of people have less than three months of emergency savings, and a recent GOBankingRates survey found that a staggering 40% of women have less than $100 in their savings accounts. saving.

Find: where and when to shop to save money on clothes

Although the ability to save money sometimes depends on factors beyond your control, we spoke to several experts who offered a manual explaining how people with healthy savings accounts manage to do so.

Set a monthly budget and stick to it

While budgeting might seem like the obvious answer, that’s because it works, according to David Frederick, director of client success and guidance at First Bank. According to Frederick, an effective budget is your best tracking tool for how much an individual or household is bringing in, how much they’re spending, and how much they can save.

“Expenses are the variable that people can most easily control,” he said.

Use advanced savings tools

If the only tool you use to save is a savings account, you risk missing out on earning potential, Frederick warned.

“While it is okay to put money in a savings account, there are often better accounts for long-term savings purposes. People concerned about retirement should save in a 401(k) or IRA. People concerned about health care costs should consider saving in a Health Savings Account (HSA). People saving for a child’s education should consider opening a 529 savings account.”

Avoid and mitigate debt

One of the most effective ways to increase savings is to reduce debt, Frederick suggested. Although some debts are difficult to avoid, from mortgages to student loans, he urged people to pay off those debts as quickly and deliberately as possible.

“Also, harmful debts like credit card balances and payday loans should be avoided whenever possible,” Frederick said.

To learn: 19 effective ways to manage your budget

Reduce lifestyle inflation

As we make more money, we tend to spend more money, a concept called “lifestyle inflation,” said Jeff Mains, CEO of Champion Leadership Group LLC, which helps entrepreneurs scale their business. It eats away at all the money we could spend on savings.

So, you should make it your goal to live below your means, says Amanda Howerton, Certified Financial Planner at RKCapital.com.

“People with the healthiest savings accounts are most often the ones who are truly living below their means,” she said. She acknowledged: “It’s so much easier said than done in the age of social media and targeted marketing, so the ‘wish list’ items you casually browse online appear daily. in advertisements.” However, it will be the difference between several thousand dollars over time.

Automate deposits

According to Brad Biren, Esq, LL.M., a tax law expert known as “RefundDrTax.”

“Calculate what would be a reasonable amount to allocate to savings and automatically transfer that amount into savings. This avoids forgetting and deciding not to.

Set savings deadlines

Additionally, Biren said, “There’s a certain magic that happens when you challenge a person to achieve a goal.” In other words, savings goals are more likely to get you to your amount faster.

“Assuming the goal is achievable, but a little stretched, it will probably become a new habit, as long as the discomfort of the race to save is not too high. For example, stretching or tightening the belt, savers realized they could live happily with less, don’t stop them, keep it up.

He recommends incremental savings goals rather than larger goals for more consistent success and a chance to celebrate accomplishments.

Organize short and long term financial goals

It can be more effective to have multiple levels of goals, said Amanda Sullivan, research analyst at CreditDonkey. “People who have a healthy savings account have it for a purpose. Whether it is a mortgage, a car loan or a retirement fund, the money in their banks is used for short or long term financial purposes.

Most likely, they will do this using the bucket savings strategy, where a certain amount of money is set aside in pursuit of a certain goal.

Goals provide a concrete reason to save, said consumer credit expert Tanya Peterson, vice president of branding at Liberty Financial Network, a digital personal finance company. “When you work on things that are important to you, whether it’s saving money, exercising, breaking a bad habit or whatever, you dramatically increase the chances of that happening.”

Look for small ways to save

Smart savers typically look for small ways to save, Petersen laments. “These little ways to work on building a smart spending habit and keeping that focus on your goals. It could be making coffee at home instead of buying expensive lattes or hanging clothes to dry instead of using the dryer. The little things will add up and apply to larger expenses as well.

The International Olympic Committee and game developer nWay have launched Olympic Games Jam: Beijing 2022, a new mobile game for IOS and Android devices that debuts a day before the Opening Ceremony in Beijing. Users will compete in ski and snowboard competitions to earn Olympic NFT digital pins.

NFTs can be bought, sold and traded on the nWayPlay marketplace. nWay, which announced a licensing deal with the IOC in June, is owned by Animoca Brands. In January, Animoca Brands raised $358 million to “develop the open metaverse”. Subsidiaries of Animoca include the metaverse video game The Sandbox.

Animoca and its subsidiaries have already created blockchain-based games for English football Manchester City, MotoGP and Formula 1. By collecting nWay’s NFTs in its new Olympic video game, users can upgrade their avatars with better speed , better control and greater resistance to dangers on digital snow slopes.

NFTs are increasingly being added to video games, while cryptocurrency firm FTX last month launched a $2 billion venture capital fund that will prioritize blockchain integration with NFTs. games. Ubisoft, developer of video games such as the Assassin’s Creed franchise, is one company that hasn’t seen its players have a positive initial reaction to NFT integration.

“I think gamers don’t understand what a digital secondary market can bring them,” said Nicolas Pouard, vice president of Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovations Lab. Searcher. “Right now, due to the current situation and the NFT context, players really believe it’s planet destruction first, and just a tool for speculation second. But what we [at Ubisoft] see first is endgame. Endgame is all about giving players the option to resell their items once they are done with them or have finished playing the game itself.

Times of the sun item on payday loans and black communities have highlighted a tension that neither lenders, consumer advocates nor lawmakers have found an optimal policy to break.

Business groups have repeated a phrase that payday lenders have used for over 30 years: They provide a service to underserved communities that no one else provides. What the consumer noted well: “It helped me when I needed it, but the interest rate is crazy.

In truth, the legislator must meet a twofold objective in credit policy: does it ensure that sufficient credit is both available and responsible? A rate cap is a brutal policy tool, and the ongoing debate around Illinois’ interest rate cap is whether it strikes the right balance.

Overall, is Illinois policy designed not only to drive out “bad credit” but also to attract “good credit”? The notes of bank deserts, underbanked households and the state’s underserved communities are making it clear that this is unlikely to happen by accident.

SEND LETTERS TO: letters@suntimes.com. We want to hear from our readers. To be considered for publication, letters must include your full name, neighborhood or hometown, and a phone number for verification. Letters should be a maximum of around 350 words.

The American Fintech Council was the only industry group to support Illinois’ rate cap bill. This fits with our non-traditional business model: many members of our banks partner with financial technology (“fintech”) companies to provide consumer loans with APRs well at or below 36%. Our partnerships lend largely to privileged and non-privileged borrowers and compete more with bank credit cards than payday lenders.

Because the costs around consumer loans are largely fixed, rate caps could mean that it is harder to provide lower-value loans to subprime, and harder-to-serve borrowers who cost the most to serve because they are in remote locations or have a higher risk. Bank-fintech partnerships use technology that can lower costs and can find ways to provide smaller loans at an affordable price.

However, it is critical that Illinois policymakers develop policies and encourage fintech partnerships and other innovations that may be outside the traditional banking model but have the potential to achieve their dual goals in lending. .

The challenge for state lawmakers is how to facilitate these low dollar lending alternatives and ensure that they are available and competitive with more expensive options that can bypass the Illinois rate cap. We look forward to working with state lawmakers to balance their dual policy goals and meet the credit needs of consumers, regardless of their risk profile or community.

Gerron S. Levi, Senior Vice President, Head of Government Affairs, American Fintech Council

Reconfiguration of the municipal council

So please tell me when did we start making new rules on the new neighborhood maps using skin color and not population like in the past?

This new way of thinking is very stupid. Aldermen and aldermen, please do your job and stop being so awake. We need the map.

Short and sweet, do your job.
