MONTGOMERY, AL (WALB) -

Raycom Media is proud to announce the launch of InvestigateTV, an innovative OTT app designed to deliver quality, impactful on-demand journalism content to viewers. Raycom Media President and CEO Pat LaPlatney made the announcement Thursday at the annual Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) conference in Orlando, FL.

InvestigateTV is the result of a dynamic collaboration involving a local broadcaster, a non-profit newsroom and a top journalism school, all invested in the importance of quality investigative work.

The app will showcase longer-form reporting from Raycom Media as well as a select group of partners including ProPublica, News21 at Arizona State University’s Cronkite School of Journalism, and NerdWallet.

InvestigateTV is available right now on Roku and will be released to other digital streaming services soon.

"We know viewers are interested in meaningful investigations that dig deeper into issues they face in their everyday lives," said LaPlatney. "We are thrilled to offer InvestigateTV, a place to highlight the tremendous efforts of our Raycom Media National Investigative Unit and our outstanding content partners. This gives us the ability to aggregate investigative materials, including stories that our local stations generate. Then it is bundled into one, easy, on-demand viewing experience."

In addition, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is investing $188,000 in Pulitzer Prize-winning ProPublica, so that the non-profit news organization can collaborate with Raycom Media in producing original investigative reporting for InvestigateTV.

InvestigateTV highlights in-depth stories that matter most to viewers. Raycom Media Chief Investigative Reporter Lee Zurik says the InvestigateTV team is both a watchdog and a resource for consumers.

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, and more information can be found on investigatetv.com.
