I-News, the Rocky Mountain Investigative News Network, is an investigative news organization initially founded as a private nonprofit but now part of the Denver-based public TV network Rocky Mountain PBS.

The network was founded in 2009 by Laura Frank, a former reporter for the defunct Rocky Mountain News. It had five full-time staff members as of 2013. Frank was initially supported by a fellowship at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the network has also collaborated with the university on a mobile media project.

I-News merged with Rocky Mountain PBS in 2013, with whom it previously had a partnership, as Frank became vice president for news there. As part of the merger, I-News merged with the public radio station KUVO and established partnerships with three other Colorado public radio stations.

I-News’ reports are published on its website and distributed through traditional media outlets, particularly public media. The network was initially funded largely by the University of Colorado, as well as through the Knight, McCormick, and Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundations. I-News began with plans to support itself through grants, corporate underwriting, syndication partnerships, and other services, though as of 2012, 84% of its funding came from foundations.

The network was a founding member of the Investigative News Network, a collaboration of nonprofit investigative news organizations.
