‘The Young Turks with Cenk Uygur’ to Launch on Current TV on December 5th

Posted by at 10:37 am on November 11, 2011

Cenk Uygur , the creator of the Web’s most popular and longest running politically themed news show, is coming to Current TV. Beginning Monday, December 5th, “The Young Turks with Cenk Uygur” will air nightly at 7 p.m. ET (will encore 10 p.m. ET, Monday-Friday) from Current TV’s Los Angeles studios.  Uygur recently anchored “MSNBC Live” at 6 p.m. ET, helped deliver that program’s strongest viewership among the 25-54 demographic and in total viewers since the show’s launch.  So Current may be a better fit for him after losing his slot to Al Sharpton.

“What we love about Cenk is that he has no fear,” noted Current TV President, David Bohrman.  “He truly understands the power of media and has no qualms about expressing his sentiment, exactly as he sees it.  His passion for the issues combined with his commitment to the truth makes The Young Turks an incredible addition to our lineup and another game-changer for Current TV.”

The Show will be a lead in to “Countdown With Keith Olbermann,” as a unique and no-holds-barred gathering place for progressives to meet and address the issues of the day. In addition, Uygur will offer his audience the opportunity to influence the show’s content, with comments, questions and challenges drawn from social media and current.com/theyoungturks addressed directly during the show each night.
