Chartbeat Announces the Most Engaging Stories of 2018

Jaa

Chartbeat, the leading content intelligence platform for publishers, today announces the Most Engaging Stories of 2018, the articles that were read most this year based on highest Engaged Time. Selected from over 60 million pieces of content published on thousands of media sites around the world, the top stories serve as a snapshot of the year’s major events and highlight the themes that resonated most with readers.

2018 saw familiar political and social themes rise to the top, including Brexit, the Trump administration, the #MeToo movement, and climate change, but it was the deeply investigated and deeply personal stories of human struggle from publications like CNN, The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Rolling Stone that topped the list again this year.

“Each year, the Most Engaging Stories list proves the power of storytelling. We learn more about the world, of course, but we also learn more about how to make sense of it and each other,” said John Saroff, CEO of Chartbeat. “The depth of humanity we see in the journalism this year is astounding – especially of the publishers at the top, in particular, CNN, BBC, The New York Times and our greatest year-over-year riser, New York Magazine.”

Brian Stelter’s CNN's Anthony Bourdain dead at 61” holds the top spot on this year’s list, earning 29 million minutes of engaged time. Stelter’s lede, “In death, as in life, Anthony Bourdain brought us closer together,” exemplifies this year’s overarching theme: in the stories and challenges of others, we better understand ourselves. This theme is something echoed by many of the top stories, including New York Magazine’s nine entries.

"We've been very happy to see so many readers engaging deeply with our journalism in 2018,” said Ben Williams, digital editor at New York Media, “And we think these hits show off not only the wide range of New York Media but also the range of stories that audiences will respond to: deep, candid interviews; fly-on-the wall access; entertaining longform narratives; sophisticated profiles; sweeping political analysis; and more."

The top ten most engaging stories that follow CNN’s Anthony Bourdain tribute are:

Knopp Biosciences Expands Research Collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s to Characterize Effect of Dexpramipexole in Inflammatory Diseases16.1.2019 14:00Tiedote

Knopp Biosciences LLC, a privately held drug discovery and development company focused on delivering breakthrough treatments for inflammatory and neurological diseases with a high unmet need, today announced the expansion of its research collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to further elucidate the eosinophil-depleting mechanism of action of Knopp’s lead investigational drug, dexpramipexole. Eosinophils are white-blood cells that play a central role in several debilitating conditions, including asthma, hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES), and other inflammatory diseases. Dexpramipexole has been shown to selectively reduce eosinophil levels in multiple clinical trials, including a Phase 2 study in HES and a Phase 2 trial in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. Knopp is advancing dexpramipexole into Phase 2 development in severe asthma and Phase 3 development in HES. The research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is being led by Patricia C.

NexPlayer Supporting Low Latency HLS & DASH Streaming on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs16.1.2019 12:52Tiedote

As part of their mission to provide the most advanced feature set, NexPlayer has added low latency functionality to its media players. NexPlayer allows you to enable low latency streaming with HLS and DASH on all devices, solving the latency problem and improving the OTT viewing experience. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190116005301/en/ Latency is a serious issue for streaming services, as live playback with HLS and DASH typically falls 30 seconds to a minute behind the live event. With linear TV only 6 seconds behind, OTT viewers find out what happens via social media or text before seeing it firsthand. Now with the support of NexPlayer, media organizations can achieve sub-6 second latency on Android, iOS, Smart TVs, STBs, PCs, and Macs. In the past, the only ways to achieve low latency were through proprietary end-to-end protocols or by foregoing ABR support. Both methods have considerable drawbacks. Propr
