Initiative has won traditional and digital media buying and planning duties for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, writes Andrew McMains. The assignment includes SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Sesame Place, Discovery Cove and SeaWorld's other U.S. theme parks, which combined to spend $42 million on media in 2011, per Nielsen.
