Local Journalism Initiative

Our partners cover COVID-19 in cities and towns across America

Even before the COVID-19 crisis hit, FRONTLINE had begun working with five local news organizations on long-term investigative projects. Now we're expanding that support as these newsrooms pivot to cover the profound impacts of coronavirus on their communities. We're highlighting this rapidly developing coverage from our partners: the Tampa Bay Times, Oklahoma Watch, Rocky Mountain PBS, New Mexico PBS (KNME-TV) and Milwaukee PBS. We’ll also be co-publishing their long-term investigative projects. Read more about our Local Journalism Initiative here.

The Local Journalism Initiative is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
