AZcentral.com reports that on a national level, advertisers and audiences have proven a fairly even match, but local advertisers have been at a disadvantage because of smaller budgets and lack of control over on-screen content such as product placements, tickers and bugs, according to high-tech entrepreneur Roy Baharav.
