Journalism Collaboration: Mountain West News Bureau

This grant supported the launch of a journalism collaboration, formerly called the Collaboration in the Mountain West, among lead station Boise State Public Radio/Boise, KUNC/Greeley, Yellowstone Public Radio/Billings, Wyoming Public Media/Laramie, KRCC/Colorado Springs and KUER/Salt Lake City. This news service focuses on land and water resource management, issues in the rural West and Western culture. The Boise-based managing editor guides six multimedia reporters to produce audio reports, news spots, editorial projects, and digital posts. Reporting airs on the member stations and is shared with national public media programs.
