i-Watch News was the flagship English language evening news program of Radio Philippines Network.

The news program replaced the network's longest-running English language news program NewsWatch.

It was originally anchored by former 103.5 K-Lite disc jockey Carlo Tirona and recording artist Aryana Lim. Lim has since pursued other endeavors and has been replaced by former magazine editor, former 99.5 RT (now 99.5 Play FM) disc jockey and actress Lexi Schulze.

iWatch News targets the youth audience especially college students and young urban professionals. It differentiates itself from other newscasts by offering more reports and news features that appeal to the younger crowd.

iWatch News aired for the last time on January 11, 2008.
