Gorkana - the essential network for PRs and Journalists
Thousands of organisations rely on us for the most accurate and in-depth intelligence on the media, journalists and bloggers to create PR programmes that hit the mark - every time.
Gorkana was founded by two PRs who ran out of patience with existing resources for managing relationships with the media. Too many cold trails. Too many journalists getting calls on subjects they no longer wrote about. Too many hours spent manually creating media contact lists.
These issues continue to drive our obsessive quest for accuracy, detail and to help PRs and journalists develop relationships based on trust and mutual benefit.
Our customers tell us that the quality and depth of our intelligence is exceptional, add that to our enthusiasm to provide the very best in personal service and that's what makes us the most recommended media database in the UK.
This can all be put down to the genuine value we put on our relationships, with you and our journalists. Over 103,000 journalists rely on our daily media alerts to keep track of changes within their industry, and they talk to us - first. About their stories, their deadlines, and their career moves - and then we tell you.

165,000 journalists and bloggers: find profiles complete with photos, direct lines, twitter handles, email addresses, beats, sectors and departments. We've got their biographies, career history, education, industry awards. Their likes and dislikes, interests, preferred meeting formats and more.
35,000 media outlets: readership, circulation, ad rates, print/deadline days and all the latest changes across each editorial department.
And if we haven't got what you're looking for just ask us: to follow up a sensitive journalist move, get a copy of a certain journalists' biography, or to find out more about a specific publication. Our research team love a challenge.
Our unique all-in-one database, monitoring and analysis service means we can analyse coverage of all national and key regional journalists and provide you with live coverage analysis of the last 30 days, so you know what themes, people and organisations are in the news.

Whether it's consumer, financial, European or US editions, we've got the roundup of all the latest career moves, editorial team changes, journalists on weekend call, and new publication launches.
Like we say, we truly believe it's not just about the data, it's about the relationships, so all our customers are exclusively entitled to join us at our hugely popular weekly events and meet our network of leading journalists. It's your chance to hear directly about their beat, how they prefer to work and practical tips for pitching. That's the tricky bit done, then, it's over to you to cultivate those critical relationships.
