STRENGTHENING PUBLIC-SERVICE JOURNALISM FOR ALL COLORADANS

The Colorado News Collaborative IS AN INDEPENDENT, NONPROFIT, STATEWIDE JOURNALISM COALITION, MEDIA RESOURCE HUB, AND IDEAS LAB.

Our networks and projects unite Colorado journalists of all delivery formats, business models, and geographies with allies and supporters to navigate the future of local news and accountability journalism in our state.

WHAT WE DO

COLab and its partners support an informed and engaged civil society through:

We build capacity in the Colorado news ecosystem by supporting collaborative reporting projects, topical or timely peer-led networks, and individual mentorship and training by experienced professionals.

We help strengthen connections between Colorado newsrooms and the communities they serve, through a commitment to community listening and continued innovation to better serve Colorado residents.

We help Colorado newsrooms explore next-generation business models, design and share best practices, serve new audiences, and diversify revenue streams.
