About Us

Zenger is the world’s first digitally native wire service. Owned and operated by journalists.

Zenger aims to:

  • Restore trust in news, and to reward journalists and news outlets in a new way for producing stories that inform, entertain, and hold leaders and institutions accountable.
  • Zenger’s model is to reward its open network of journalists by sharing advertising revenue with the people who create the content.
  • We pay quickly and electronically. No more paper checks from out-of-state banks, months after you publish.
  • Zenger provides wire stories to news outlets, for low or no up-front cost, and shares advertising revenue with them. Instead of subtracting from their bottom line and deepening a struggling industry’s challenges, Zenger adds to their top line.

Zenger is dedicated to bringing high-quality news content to overlooked communities and promoting the broadest possible variety of voices and subjects.
