Why people use media monitoring

Monitoring of the media Media monitoring is a simple and efficient, though rather laborious method allowing one to keep track of all relevant news on a market, company, person or event. Only regular sifting through multiple sources guarantees surefire results.

We at WPS have been involved in this business since 1992 and offer a full range of Russian media monitoring services to researches, journalists, diplomats, PR professionals and businesses across the world.
Services, organized by source type, are geared to cover virtually all Russian media.
