NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Publishers Clearing House (PCH), a leading digital entertainment and commerce destination for millions of US consumers, has been ranked as a top “Multi-Category” publisher by Comscore with more than 17 million total unique visitors for the month of December 2019. The “Multi-Category” segment includes some of the most recognizable consumer-facing publishers in the business, such as Google, Buzzfeed, Sony, and AxelSpringer, and destinations that contain multiple content areas such as entertainment, gaming, and e-commerce. 

In addition to cementing Publishers Clearing House as one of the top Multi-Category media properties in terms of scale, Comscore also confirmed its superlative level of consumer engagement across PCH’s diverse portfolio of entertainment properties. Consumers spent an average of more than 10 minutes per visit according to Comscore’s latest figures, well exceeding industry averages.

“Consumers are familiar with PCH’s products and brands, but many in the media business are unaware of the scale of our growing digital operation,” said Steve Bagdasarian, President, Media, at Publishers Clearing House. “Beyond the scale of our community, the time they spend on each visit to PCH reflects our commitment to providing unique experiences that are as fun and joyful as they are interactive and engaging.”
