NEW YORK � May 7, 2008 --- Lauren Zalaznick, named today President, Women and Lifestyle Entertainment Networks, announced the launch of "Women@NBCU," a powerful combination of media assets reaching women across multiple platforms.

This content and marketing initiative will create a unique approach for advertisers to connect with this desirable demographic through NBC Universal brands, including Bravo, Oxygen, iVillage, and Green is Universal as well as other female-skewing properties such as the "Today" show and certain NBC primetime programs such as "The Biggest Loser" and "Lipstick Jungle."

"We have the unparalleled ability to reach the customized psychographic female target everywhere they are, at every hour of the day, every day," said Zalaznick. "Anchored by four powerful brands � Bravo, Oxygen, Green, and iVillage, supplemented by the select "boutique" properties across the NBC Universal landscape � we've created a one-stop shop to deliver custom female 18-54 audiences with scale. "

With dedicated resources in the areas of content, research, sales and marketing, Women@NBCU is a solutions-driven unit that will assist clients in developing integrated, targeted marketing campaigns. In addition to the network offerings across cable and on-line at iVillage, Women@NBCU will offer additional female-focused marketing opportunities including the "Today" show, NBC prime-time programming, select content on cable properties such as CNBC, as well as utilize NBC Universal's most powerful web and mobile properties.

"This strategy is right in line with our entire enterprise sales approach which focuses on creating customized marketing solutions targeted to a very specific demographic. When you are talking about women in particular, NBCU has a particularly desirable group of assets that can provide clients with a number of innovative opportunities," said Mike Pilot, President, NBC Universal Ad Sales and Marketing.

Women@NBCU reaches all women across all demographics, including the most affluent and desirable on television. A demographic category much sought-after by advertisers, women control 80% of all consumer purchasing across every brand category. In addition, studies indicate that the majority of women (75%) influence the purchasing decisions of others by recommending products to their friends and family. Day-to-day sales efforts for Women@NBCU will be handled by Senior Vice President Susan Malfa, who will add this to her current responsibilities overseeing Bravo and Oxygen Ad Sales.
