Who Won the Week? 4/9/24: NCAA Women Eclipses TV Records, WrestleMania Explodes with Ad Opportunities

Who Won the Week is back with a new episode covering one of the biggest weeks on the sports TV calendar — including the NCAA Final Four and WrestleMania.

EDO content marketing manager Aaron Taube is joined by VP of brand partnerships Rebecca Sandidge and VP of client development Will Price to discuss record-setting viewership for the women’s Final Four and what advertisers can expect from women’s basketball moving forward.

Plus, we take a long look at a star-studded, two-day WrestleMania, and how advertisers are using World Wrestling Entertainment and All Elite Wrestling programming to (pile)drive results all year round.

And last, but certainly not least, we’ll let you know a few industries that are highly effective at advertising during the afternoon — when there’s not a solar eclipse pulling us all away from our TVs.
