MONTGOMERY, AL – InvestigateTV, Raycom Media’s innovative OTT app, announced a new content partnership with Investigative Network, a first of its kind non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to producing video- and film-based investigative content. This relationship means viewers will find even more investigative content on the newly released app.
InvestigateTV is both a watchdog and a resource for its viewers. Lead by Raycom Media’s National Investigative Unit, the OTT channel features in-depth stories on topics that matter most to viewers, such as government corruption, corporate greed and healthcare issues.
Investigative Network is a non-profit investigative journalism organization comprised of a nationwide network of experienced, award-winning journalists. It joins InvestigateTV and a growing list of exceptional content partners including ProPublica, News21 at Arizona’s Cronkite School of Journalism, and NerdWallet.
“The Investigative Network is honored to partner with Raycom Media’s National Investigative Team in protecting the public through our investigative reporting,” said Brian Collister, Chief Investigative Reporter at the Investigative Network.
“Brian Collister is one of the best broadcast investigative journalists in the country,” InvestigateTV’s Director of Investigations Lee Zurik said. “He’s a national award-winning reporter who has a track record of producing strong accountability journalism that matters to viewers. We are excited to add this content to the InvestigateTV app on Roku.”
“We’re thrilled to have Investigative Network join this important initiative. We are fortunate to have content partners that share our same passion for quality investigative journalism,” stated Raycom Media President & CEO Pat LaPlatney.
InvestigateTV is available right now on Roku and will be released to other digital streaming services soon. Viewers can search “InvestigateTV” to find the app on their Roku devices. InvestigateTV will be added to Amazon Fire and Apple TV later this year. InvestigateTV is on Facebook and Twitter (@investigatetv), and more information can be found on investigatetv.com.
