Listen better.

You want to create the most relevant, useful and original journalism? Hearken helps open up the reporting processes to get valuable feedback pre-publication. You have limited time and resources, your audience has limited attention. Make the right decisions.

Hearken’s public-powered model has proven to be a foolproof way to identify story ideas that are basically guaranteed to connect with readers. Nearly every time we do a Hearken-based story, it soars to the top of our analytics.
— Andi McDaniel, Senior Director of Content and News, WAMU
We’ve gone back to the basics of journalism... grassroots, public-powered, bottom-up journalism where we’re listening a bit more. And we have found some incredible uplifting stories that have gotten national attention.
— Chris Gibson, UK News Editor, BBC
