“I’m Listening,” Audacy’s (NYSE: AUD) flagship program created on the belief that the power of talk saves lives, is continuously committed to delivering more mental health conversations, resources and pathways to help over 200 million listeners. Each year, Audacy activates “I’m Listening” through national campaigns featuring artists, celebrities, and athletes who share their experiences with mental health. Partnering with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), these events help raise awareness and support of issues that we all face in our daily lives.
"It all started on May 18th, 2017, in response to the tragic loss of Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, sadly something that seemed to be recurring in Seattle for far too long. We were at a loss and had to do something, so the Seattle team opened the mic and started talking on air, and others joined in, both famous voices and the voices of our audience. It was raw, it was emotional, it was real,” said Dave Richards, Senior Vice President Programming, Audacy. “For me it's personal -- we all have a connection with someone we know and love who's struggling. And too many people are afraid to show and share their vulnerabilities. Thankfully each year, ‘I’m Listening’ shares more stories of hope, letting people know they are not alone, and each year the conversation really does become easier for more people to join. The more people we connect with the better. We know first hand, talk saves lives."
