America's #1 Audio Company Reaching 9 out of 10 Americans every month

Community Outreach

Our presence in, and responsiveness to, our communities enables us to deliver on our mission to give everyone in America a friend whenever they need one – especially in times of need.

Serving all of our communities across America is the core of what we do, and we place great emphasis on serving the neighborhoods and communities in which we live and work through our diverse portfolio of platforms and assets – broadcast, digital, podcasts, personalities, influencers, social, live events and more. iHeartMedia is dedicated to inspiring and creating positive change that improves the lives of others. The company's community programs are built on the idea that through public awareness and education we give Americans enough information for them to make informed decisions around important public issues.
