An editorial staff of 37, bolstered by freelancers and backed by the Investigative News Network and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, will update iWatch content daily with up to a dozen original investigative stories and aggregated content on topics ranging from health care and national security to politics and the environment.  The new site will sell advertising and continue to rely on contributions such as the $1.7 million grant from the Knight Foundation received last year and $250,000 Huffington Post Investigative Fund money doled out by The Huffington Post's investigative arm with whom the CPI merged last year.

CPI also will continue its collaborative efforts with the New York Times, NPR, ABC and other mainstream news outlets to produce and distribute stories.
