New collaboration aims to strengthen journalism in Colorado

Editor & Publisher: Set to launch this fall, the Colorado News Collaborative (COLab) is an “independent media resource hub” founded by 10 leading news media outlets in the state, offering newsrooms the opportunity to collaborate with each other in a physical space at the Rocky Mountain Public Media’s new Buell Center for Public Media in downtown Denver.

In anticipation of the launch, a response team made of up Colorado Independent journalists Susan Greene, editor, and Tina Griego, managing editor, was formed. The Independent is one of the COLab’s founding members.

Griego told E&P this collaborative will help newsrooms across the state report and write stories with statewide impact that they may not have the time, ability or staff to do on their own reporting. In addition, it will provide training to the journalists. Griego explained that the partnership was a result of a confluence of events, but the main reason was to “marry (their) strengths.”
