What some of your media peers are discovering with Hearken
Make record-breaking stories:
“The first post we did with Peak Curiosity went super viral. It did so much better than any other post we have ever done on our website. It was eye-opening for me. Given the size of our Facebook following, I didn't think we could reach that many people. But we can and should continue to strive for it.”
— Jake Brownell, Programming and News Producer, KRCC
More directly serve your audience information needs:
“The most rewarding thing about Hearken has been the direct interaction with listeners. In this business, it's hard to avoid a sense of separateness from our audience. Even in this social media age, so much of our communication goes one direction. This is a refreshing multi- directional engagement platform that makes us better in lots of ways.”
— Mack Linebaugh, Director of Digital Services, Nashville Public Radio
Inspire cross-team collaboration:
“M.I. Curious is one of the places where we can bring multiple teams together to work on a story. Reporters and editors work with digital and social team members to develop a plan around audience engagement and storytelling. Hearken helped us build this kind of teamwork on other stories as well.”
— Mark Brush, Digital Media Director, Michigan Radio
Grow your membership base:
“During our Spring fund drive, we heard from a lot of listeners that they enjoyed Carolina Curious. Even our negative feedback would be along the lines of “We want more frequent Carolina Curious’ pieces!” We’ve also had a high amount of listeners who have either increased their donation after being in a story or became new members.”
— Emily McCord, News Director, WFDD
We partner with 100+ newsrooms around the world, across print, TV, radio, podcast, digital-only, events as well as museums and schools.
