I’m Listening: talk saves lives

We are trusted companions and loyal friends to our listeners. We know the power of talk saves lives. We meet people where they are and assure them it’s okay to not be okay.

I’m Listening

Devastated by the premature deaths by suicide of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden in 2017, our Seattle music team longed to express their sadness and effect change. They jumped into conversations with artists about hurting, healing, and hope – and the impact was so strong that we began amplifying mental health awareness across our platform. Today, it’s known as “I’m Listening.”​

I’m Listening uses the power of talk to save lives by hosting mental health conversations across all Audacy platforms – over the air on our 235+ radio stations, digital & social communities, podcasting, live events – and of course with our team internally too.

I want to let people know like even when you have dropped the number one song in the world and everything looks like it should be going great, you’re still allowed to have emotions and your emotions are valid.
