The Company History
Founded in 1978 by Monica Davis, Teleclip, Inc. is a multi media and broadcast news monitoring firm headquartered in Austin, Texas. A number of strategic alliences have enabled Teleclip to provide media news monitoring in most 210 media markets across the nation and the world.
In 1981, Teleclip, joined thirteen other North American news monitors as founding members of the International Association Broadcast Monitors (IABM). Now a much larger organization, IABM remains dedicated to fostering the exchange of information among its members, maintaining goodwill with its broadcast partners, and working to safeguard the public’s right to access news information.
A true pioneer in the industry, Teleclip developed a relationship with the City of Austin well over 30 years ago providing the public with continuing access to news coverage. The Austin History Center currently houses newscasts recorded by Teleclip Inc., dating back to April of 1984, thus making Teleclip one of the longest archiving monitors of local newscasts in the United States.
In 1997, Teleclip again took a leadership role in building News Data Services, Inc. (NDS), a corporation comprised of independent news monitors that share a common computer database. NDS currently gathers news coverage from most of the 210 media markets across the U.S., and in several foreign countries. Services include news monitoring of broadcast news, radio news, internet news and social media news monitoring.
in 2006, Teleclip began recording digitally making a transition from recording and archiving news recordings on VHS tapes to a digital format in DVD and MPEG SD quality video. The immediate response by clients was extremely favorable and overwhelming, and the change to recording in the digital age began. Clients began to obtain news segments electronically on DVD, CD-ROM, and by electronic delivery.
in 2009, Teleclip began offering a new online media dashboard service to help clients organize, compile, and analyze the media content reported in the news from multiple sources to include television broadcast, radio broadcast, internet news content, internet blogs, and social media sites. Tel-eView provides a single portal access point for clients for all their media tracking needs.
in 2012, through our partnership with NDS, multiple newscasts in local markets and national networks are now being recorded and captured in HD quality video and available for video copy from our news monitoring services. Some markets have limited archives, so check with a sales contact for more information.
in 2013, Teleclip expanded the radio monitoring capabilities by adding over 100 markets of radio content to the database using new audio to text indexing technology that provides clients will faster reporting of radio news content. Over 21,000 hours of radio are being indexed monthly with a growing expansion of new radio content being added daily. Clients are now able to search, report and clip radio coverage in near real time from markets and stations that have never been indexed before.
