Reckon is committed to deep exploration of tough and important issues facing the South. We do this through authentic conversations that lead to thoughtful actions. We know this place intimately, and we join with our audiences in telling stories about shaping our region’s future. 

Reckon was founded in 2017. With support from the Google News Initiative, we recently refocused Reckon to listen deeply to our readers about which topics we cover and how we cover them. We also bring people together with social media, community conversations and events. 

Nationally, our journalistic work has garnered major awards, including multiple Emmys and a Pulitzer Prize. We have partnered with the International Center for Journalists, Solutions Journalism Network, Facebook and other community-building brands to forge paths and tell the stories of our South.
