News UK has announced the launch of Nucleus, a first-party data platform. 

Using user data and contextual insight, Nucleus will enable advertisers to reach the brand’s 36.5 million digital readers, listeners and viewers, including audiences at the The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun, Virgin Radio, TalkSport and Times Radio.

The platform will offer advertisers access to what the publisher says is one of the largest known UK audiences, based on first-party data, in a more privacy-compliant, future-proof and accurate way.
