With Super Bowl LVI only a few weeks away, football fans are excitedly watching this weekend’s conference championship games, which will determine the two teams that will face off in the big game.
The Cincinnati Bengals are among the 4 teams competing in their respective championship games this weekend. This is the first time in 33 years that the Bengals have been in the running for the AFC Championship title. On top of that, the Bengals are one of 12 NFL teams that have never won a Superbowl championship.
In honor of their momentum this season, let’s look at OOH in their home market – the Cincinnati DMA. Here are some specifics about the OOH media in this market.
