Miller Kaplan Arase Expands Media Practice

North Hollywood, Calif.-based Miller Kaplan Arase (FY15 gross revenue of $38 million) has reached an agreement with Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Hungerford Nichols CPAs + Advisors to assume its broadcast client relationships.

Millar Kaplan Arase currently prepares market revenue share and other reporting for a majority of the U.S. television markets and will now take on the added reporting responsibility in about 40 television broadcast markets, including: Chicago, Philadelphia and Dallas, which were previously served by Hungerford Nichols.

“We are very excited to be able to introduce the capabilities of our online reporting platform and team of media specialists to the management and sales executives of the television stations in these markets,” says Millar Kaplan Arase’s media partner, Andrew Rosen, in a statement. “We are also very pleased that we will now be able to provide more comprehensive reporting to the ownership groups that oversee the stations in the more than 120 TV markets we now serve”.

Miller Kaplan Arase is a Baker Tilly International member firm. It works with 2,500 media properties within TV, radio, outdoor and other mediums and counts virtually every radio and television broadcasting company in the country as a client. The acquisition signals Hungerford Nichols’ exit from the broadcast industry after 40 years.
