The Digital Place-based Advertising Association (DPAA) will kick off its 6th annual Summit on Oct. 22 with an appearance by celebrity journalist Cat Greenleaf, host of ‘USA Daytime’ and the Emmy Award-winning ‘Talk Stoop with Cat Greenleaf‘.
‘Talk Stoop with Cat Greenleaf‘ is seen on NBC 4 New York, as well as on additional NBC Owned Television Stations in the country’s top markets and on COZI TV, NBC’s national multicast network. ‘Talk Stoop’ can also be seen on DPAA member VeriFone Media’s out-of-home digital video network (VNET) in taxi cabs and on gas pumps across the country.
