Listening Post Collective MENU

MEET OUR LISTENING POST COLLECTIVE MEMBERS

The Listening Post Collective is a vibrant and collaborative network of partners across the US. The Listening Post team focuses on two things.

Supporting our members

We help establish projects and mentor local media working in communities that have news and information gaps. We provide funding, help conduct local research, and offer project support and coaching to local actors who seek to expand their community’s voice in media and make sure residents are better informed.

Sharing and learning

Through our playbook, newsletters and our toolkit, we share our strategies with a community of reporting outlets, journalism schools, and engaged journalism projects around the US. We also seek to learn from that same cohort, and collaboratively explore sustainability, reach, representation, and impact of local journalism.

Values 


Truth 


Truth​ is the foundation of all great journalism, ​but truth in news is not simply the regurgitation of facts and quotes​. We commit to delivering stories that incorporate the highest standards of journalism through the use of in-depth reporting, data, diverse perspectives, human-focused storytelling, creative formats, and exhaustive sourcing. Our goal is to slow down, to develop long-term source networks, and to pursue stories that help establish shared truth in public decision-making.

We recognize that our ​community​ is made up of many interrelated and interconnected communities. In our journalism, we seek to establish healthy community dialogue, to examine solutions that solve systemic problems, and to cover the issues that matter the most to all of us. 


Equity


By embracing the value of ​equity​, we commit to elevating the voices of the people most impacted by decisions and policies, and we strive to reach audiences in vulnerable communities with journalism that empowers and inspires them. We recognize that media coverage has a natural tendency to prioritize vocal, powerful, and organized interests, so we work to ensure that our coverage represents balanced, diverse, and equitable perspectives.
