Colorado Media Project: A coalition of Colorado newsrooms is joining forces to share vital COVID-19 news coverage and strengthen accountability journalism across the state – with a mission to better meet the urgent information needs of all Coloradans.
Covering the wide-ranging public health and economic crises of COVID-19 is the latest initiative of the newly formed Colorado News Collaborative – also known as COLab. Most Colorado newsrooms are already offering COVID-19 coverage for free to the public, and professional journalists have been declared essential workers by Governor Jared Polis.
Participating newsrooms aim to coordinate coverage to avoid duplication and maximize resources; cover more stories about people and communities statewide that are currently going untold; collaborate across newsrooms on data-driven accountability journalism; and facilitate wider distribution of stories, in both English and other languages, in order to better serve the public.
