About This Project

When the novel coronavirus pandemic hit, a coalition of Colorado journalists already had been talking about how to better serve the public by collaborating and sharing stories. The urgency of the situation accelerated the work. More than 40 Colorado news organizations—newspapers, TV, radio, and digital outlets—are now sharing their reporting through the Colorado News Collaborative, COLab for short. And on April 16, 22 outlets joined together to report about the impact of the pandemic on Coloradans. The result: COVID Diaries Colorado, stories of grit, ingenuity, and hope.
