Happs’ mission: Empowering broadcast journalists

The existing live news model is broken. It's geared toward a profit-driven motive that overemphasizes entertainment value and depends on fear and rage in order to drive ratings. Happs provides an antidote.

Happs is a community of broadcasters sharing, in real time, everything newsworthy that's happening globally. Happs enables journalists to expose stories and truths that need to be heard in the interest of serving social justice and transparent democracy. If you want to see what's happening on the ground around the world at this exact moment, or tune into informed discussion on these subjects, Happs is the place for you.

We believe in journalists and want to empower them to do their best work. Right now, too many journalists are frustrated and feeling forced to work within a broken framework. They’re tired of working for media companies that care more about profits than quality journalism. We champion these journalists because society needs people informing us, speaking truth to power, and exposing things that would otherwise get swept under the rug.

Also, many experts, activists, students, and citizen journalists (not to mention viewers) are tired of the news business being a closed circle of people who all think the same way and feed each other the same stale information. As an open platform, Happs changes that equation and lets everybody participate. Plus, viewers can interact directly with journalists and their subjects in a way that’s completely different from the current live news model. Fresh voices means fresh perspectives.

Happs makes broadcast journalism an open source system. It’s radically inclusive; if you share our values for good journalism, a reverence for the truth, a respect for others, come broadcast and watch on Happs.

Have a question about Happs? We’d love to hear from you.
