Glow Interactive Announces New Client, "Live from the Artists Den" TV Music Series on Public Television, With Campaign Launch to Harness the Power of Social Media to Drive Tune-In

Digital Communications Agency Kicks Off First Online Marketing, PR and Content Strategy Campaign for 4th Season of Hit Show to Connect Fans and Increase Engagement

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 2, 2011) - Glow Interactive, a leading New York-based interactive marketing, advertising and creative agency, today announced it has signed on as the agency of record to drive online marketing, public relations and digital content strategy for the fourth season of public television's hit show, Live from the Artists Den. The digital campaign is being led by Glow Interactive's Social Communications group and will kick off on December 2 to drive tune-in and viewer engagement in advance of the show's season premiere on February 3, 2012 featuring multi-platinum artist Adele.

"For our new season, we've enhanced and expanded our social media and digital channels to allow us to more effectively interact with and entertain our audience outside of the actual broadcast," said Mark Lieberman, Live from the Artists Den creator and executive producer. "Glow Interactive's Social Communications group has worked with us on an outstanding campaign to make Live from the Artists Den more of a social television experience."

The campaign focuses on utilizing digital and social media channels -- such as Facebook, Twitter, third-party blogs, digital properties like Hulu, as well as music, general entertainment and lifestyle outlets -- to increase user engagement, introduce the show to new fans outside of the traditional music scene and ultimately drive TV show tune-in. To do this, Glow Interactive is connecting writers and fans to the compelling stories and memorable music experiences of Live from the Artists Den through site and blog partnerships that leverage exclusive video footage for editorial placement; facilitate personal interviews with the artists and executives of the show; enable content distribution and social content activation; and drive social community growth via content and creative access.

"This is a major new initiative from previous seasons of Live from the Artists Den," explained Howie Kleinberg, president of digital communications for Glow Interactive. "There is something inherently social about music, and the executives of the show recognize social media as a powerful way to interact and engage with their viewers on a more personal level than ever before. That's what this campaign is about: bringing the musicians, the fans and the show all together through social media for an enhanced experience all around."

The fourth season features Adele, The Fray, Death Cab for Cutie, Kid Rock, Iron and Wine and Amos Lee with special guests Calexico and premieres nationwide on public television beginning February 3, 2012 (check local listings at
