The New York Times writer Thomas Fuller has reported media organizations in the Bay Area are planning to coordinated coverage on the homeless crisis in the city. The Chronicle is dispensing with traditional news article formats and will put forward possible solutions to the plight of around 6,000 homeless.
Bay Area television and radio stations, The Chronicle, The San Francisco Examiner, Mother Jones and online publications, among others, agreed to publish their reports on homelessness on June 29.
Thirty news organizations have confirmed their participation. KQED, a public television and radio station, is also taking a lead role in the campaign.
