Young Turks (TYT) is a progressive American news and commentary
program on YouTube, which also serves as the flagship program of the
TYT Network, a multi-channel network of associated web series focusing
on news and current events. The program was created by Cenk Uygur, Ben
Mankiewicz, and Dave Koller. Currently co-hosted by Uygur and Ana
Kasparian, who are often accompanied by various in-studio
contributors, the program maintains an anti-establishment stance and
provides commentary on topics of varying news genres. The Young Turks
began as a radio program that premiered on February 14, 2002 on Sirius
Satellite Radio; it was later carried on Air America, before launching
a web series component in 2005 on YouTube.
In addition to being carried on the
TYT Network and YouTube, it is
also currently available on Hulu, Roku, and through a 24-hour feed on
Pluto TV. It has spawned two spin-off television series, one that
aired on Current TV from 2011 to 2013 and a second that debuted on
Fusion in 2016 as a limited-run program developed to cover the 2016
United States presidential election. The
Young Turks also served as
the subject of a documentary, entitled Mad as Hell, which was released
in 2014.[better source needed]

Young Turks live streams for two hours, with its story selection
and associated commentary broken up by format. Issues that the show
focuses on include the influence of money in politics, drug policy,
social security, the privatization of public services, climate change,
the influence of religion, abortion and reproductive rights, civil
rights and issues of injustice towards people of color and sexual
minorities, sexual morality, and the influence of corporations,
neutrality and establishment political thought on traditional news
media. The program maintains a liberal/progressive ideology in its
political commentary. Co-creator and host Cenk Uygur
describes himself as an "independent progressive" and asserts that the
show is aimed at the "98 per cent 'not in power'" and what he
describes as the 60% of Americans who hold progressive views.
The first hour, which is solo hosted by Uygur, focuses on American
politics, foreign policy and breaking news headlines. The second
hour – which is co-hosted by Uygur and
Ana Kasparian – provides
social commentary on a wide range of topics, both domestic and
foreign. The program also features a post-game show, in which Uygur
and Kasparian discuss their personal lives. Uygur has regular bits and
on-air interaction with other staff members who create and run the
show, including among others Jesús Godoy, Dave Koller, Jayar Jackson
and Steve Oh.
Each Friday, The
Young Turks features a panel of guests from the
worlds of politics, journalism, pop culture, sports and comedy –
dubbed the "TYT Power Panel" – that is led by Uygur and John
Iadarola in the first hour and Kasparian in the second hour. Along
with Iadarola, other fill-in hosts and recurring guests include series
co-creator/contributor Ben Mankiewicz, Jimmy Dore, John Iadarola,
Brian Unger, Hannah Cranston, Hasan Piker, Becca Frucht, Brett Erlich,
Wes Clark Jr., Michael Shure, Cara Santa Maria, RJ Eskow, Dave Rubin,
Gina Grad, Grace Baldridge, Samantha Schacher, Jayde Lovell and Kim

Young Turks is broadcast in a two-hour live stream format, which
airs Monday through Fridays at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The
program was originally based out of the living room of creator/host
Cenk Uygur, but it moved production to a small office in Los Angeles
after the show hired a limited staff to produce the program. When the
program was given a secondary live show on
Current TV in 2011, the
network provided a larger studio in
Los Angeles to house its
television and online broadcasts; production was forced to leave the
Current TV was sold to Al Jazeera, prior to the
network's conversion into the now-defunct generalized news service Al
In 2013, The Young Turks' production staff relocated temporarily to
new studio quarters at
YouTube Space LA in Los Angeles. In October
Young Turks launched an
Indiegogo campaign, aimed at raising
$250,000 in order to build a new studio. Fundraising completed with
$400,000 being raised. The program moved its production facilities
and staff operations to new studio facilities in
Los Angeles later
that year, with construction of their new studio being completed in
Young Turks was originally developed as a radio talk show that was
similar in format to a Los Angeles-based public access television
Cenk Uygur had hosted, titled The Young Turk. With the
help of friend
Ben Mankiewicz (with whom he had previously worked),
his childhood friend Dave Koller, and Jill Pike, Uygur began The Young
Turks as a radio program in February 2002 on Sirius Satellite
Radio. On the show's website, the title is explained as deriving
from the English-language phrase "Young Turk", meaning a "progressive
or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party"
or a "young person who rebels against authority or societal
In 2006, the program received attention for its 99-hour "Live on Air
Filibuster," conducted during Congressional hearings for the
Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. Hosts including Thom
Hartmann and John Amato filled in during the event, to allow the
show's regular hosts and contributors to rest or take breaks.
Prior to signing a distribution deal to carry the program on Air
America in 2006, the show was broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio, on
Sirius Left 143 and later 146, airing weekdays from 6:00 to
9:00 pm. Eastern Time; a day-behind rebroadcast of the program
aired on Sirius
Talk Central 148 weekday afternoons from 12:00 to
2:00 pm. Eastern. Being carried exclusively on Sirius for several
Young Turks was the first show to air exclusively on Sirius
Left that was not distributed through a syndication network.[citation

(AM) and KNSS-FM) in
Wichita, Kansas each weeknight from 7:00 to
9:00 p.m. Central Time and webcast by RadioPower.org.
On February 2, 2009, TYT was removed from the broadcast schedule of
America Left, a progressive talk channel carried on Sirius/XM Channel
167, and replaced by an additional hour of The
Bill Press Show. The
program returned to Sirius/XM on March 16, 2009. In late 2010, TYT
announced through its
Facebook page that it would discontinue carrying
the program on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio; the last edition of The
Young Turks to be carried on the service aired on November 19, 2010.
TYT rejoined Sirius/XM in 2017 with the show being ran on SiriusXM

Young Turks was the first daily streaming online talk show, having
begun airing in that format in 2006.
In August 2007,
Ben Mankiewicz left the show to serve as a contributor
for TMZ's syndicated entertainment news program TMZ on TV. At
roughly the same time,
Jill Pike left to pursue a job in Washington,
D.C. Ana Kasparian, then working as an intern for the program, was
hired to do pop culture-focused segments. Mankiewicz eventually
returned to The
Young Turks as a regular correspondent.
During the 2008 elections, the show developed close ties to Brave New
Films. The program aired commercials for the independent film
production company and featured actors such as
Robert Greenwald and
Jonathan Kim as guests.
On July 30, 2013, The
Young Turks launched a
TYT Network app on
Roku, which features much of the same content that is already
available for free through the program's
YouTube channel, which has
over 2.9 million subscribers and generates 50 million monthly
views. The network is among the few channels to generate more than
1 billion views since launching on YouTube, which does not market
a channel on the
Roku app store.
Young Turks COO Steve Oh acknowledged
that making the
TYT Network available on
Roku was the first part of a
strategy to continue the network's growth, regardless of what medium
in which its viewers are watching its content, with the intent to
figure out a way to monetize its programming through multiple
distribution channels, rather than relying on one or two larger
channels (such as
YouTube or cable television distribution). The
network also announced plans to unveil native apps for iOS and Android
devices. Oh also noted that the network's representatives were
speaking with other media platforms about expanding its programming.
In April 2014, The
Young Turks began offering its content on Hulu.
With this, it began providing a condensed 30-minute version of the
program featuring excerpts from the full two-hour daily show, along
with a 30-minute weekly version of its daily pop-culture show
PopTrigger, with other shows being added shortly afterward. Oh stated
Hulu launch that, "as
TYT Network has grown from a single show
to an entire network, we've consistently found ways to bring our shows
to more people[..] We've long admired
Hulu as a leader of online video
and both parties saw an opportunity to bring digitally-native politics
and pop culture talk shows to Hulu's audience." He also stated that
the company is pitching shows to cable network, but had no immediate
plans to revive a television broadcast as either a relaunched program
or a show similar in format to the one it formerly produced for
The website's yearly revenue was roughly US$3 million in 2013.
According to Cenk Uygur, "about a third of the revenue comes from
subscriptions, and the rest comes from
YouTube ads." At that time, the
company maintained a staff of 30 employees. In 2014, the company
received a US$4 million investment from Roemer, Robinson,
Melville & Co., LLC, a private equity firm led by former Louisiana
Governor Buddy Roemer. In December 2016,
TYT Network launched a
crowdfunding campaign aiming to raise US$2 million for the hiring
of four further investigative teams. Five months later, the aim
was met. In August 2017, it was announced that The Young Turks
have raised $20 million in venture-capital from WndrCo (owned by
Jeffrey Katzenberg, prominent financial contributor to DNC as well as
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns), Greycroft,
3L and other corporations. TYT claim that the funds will be used to
double their staff.
In November 2017, TYT fired field reporter
Jordan Chariton following
sexual assault allegations against him. Chariton vehemently denied
the accusations and has stated he's considering legal actions.
In mid-December 2017, Politico reported that TYT was courting former
Dan Rather to host a news show. On Jan.
21, 2018, TYT confirmed that it will show The
News with Dan Rather, a
half-hour "untraditional evening newscast" weekly on Mondays in the
time slot before the main
Young Turks show.
As of April 2013, TYT had approximately 4,000 paying subscribers
By August 2016,
Cenk Uygur reported that number had increased to more
On April 20, 2013, The
Young Turks announced that its
had received over 1 billion video views.
By October 2016, the total number of views for the TYT Network's
YouTube channel had surpassed 3 billion.
As of September 2017, the program's
YouTube channel averages a daily
hit count of 2 million views per day.
In a September 2006 article, U.S.
News & World Report contributing
writer Paul Bedard described TYT as "the loudly liberal counter to the
right-leaning presets on my Sirius Satellite Radio." In 2014, The
Independent described it as "the most-watched online news show in the

The first linear television incarnation of the program began as an
hour-long show that premiered on
Current TV on December 5, 2011.
Co-created and hosted by
Cenk Uygur (who executive produced the series
with original program co-creator Dave Koller, with Jesus Godoy, Jayar
Jackson and Mark Register serving as producers), the program was
co-presented by Ana Kasparian, with Ben Mankiewicz, Michael Shure,
Brian Unger, Wes Clark, Jr. and RJ Eskow as contributors and
correspondents. It was filmed at studio facilities in the Los Angeles
suburb of Culver City.
Current TV announced the launch of a separate television broadcast of
Young Turks on September 20, 2011, with the program intending to
air Monday through Friday evenings at 7:00 pm. Eastern Time
beginning in the fourth quarter of 2011. It was the second news and
opinion program to air on Current, alongside Countdown with Keith
Olbermann, and was part of a strategy to refocus the network's prime
time schedule around progressive talk programming (which was followed
by the debut of
The War Room with Jennifer Granholm
The War Room with Jennifer Granholm in January 2012).
According to the show's website, the show was titled The Young Turks
Cenk Uygur to differentiate itself from the popular web
series. For two years, the two separate shows were produced each
Monday through Thursday, with a one-hour break between the production
airtimes of the television and web shows. In a press release,
representatives for Current described TYT as "a group of progressive,
outspoken journalists and commentators discussing politics and pop
culture" and founder
Cenk Uygur as bringing a, "uniquely progressive
and topical commentary about politics and pop culture."
On January 2, 2013,
Current TV was sold to Qatar-based broadcaster Al
Jazeera, which announced plans to reorganize the channel as Al
Jazeera America, focusing on world news and investigative content with
a more neutral tone; with the move, the channel would discontinue its
talk programming slate, including The
Young Turks with Cenk Ugyur,
which ended its run on
Current TV on August 15, 2013, shortly before
the network's relaunch.
In an interview with the
Los Angeles Times, Uygur commented that with
the discontinuance of the television broadcast, he was relieved to
move on and focus on his web show and the
TYT Network site, stating
that he had been "exhausted from doing the two shows at once" and that
he was glad to put his energies there, as he believes that the future
of media will gravitate towards online content. Uygur also noted that
he talked with
Al Jazeera after the company bought Current, reaching a
mutual agreement not to continue with the television broadcast due to
the change in ideological tone that
Al Jazeera America would
maintain. However, members of The Young Turks' on-air contributing
staff, such as
Michael Shure (who served as a political and general

Young Turks on Fusion
Young Turks returned to television with a weekly, hour-long
program on Fusion, The
Young Turks on Fusion, which premiered on
September 12, 2016 for a twelve-week limited run. Hosted by Ana
Kasparian and John Iadarola, the program – which was broadcast from
college campuses around the United States, in a live-audience format
modelled after ESPN's College GameDay – focused on coverage of the
2016 United States presidential campaign. The show also featured Cenk
Uygur, Jimmy Dore, Ben Mankiewicz, Hannah Cranston, Hasan Piker and

Young Turks political movement has been associated with involvement in
the Armenian Genocide. The company's founders deny such a
connection and maintain that it finds its origin in the English
language idiom that is independent of Turkish politics. According to
the American Heritage Dictionary, one definition of a Young Turk is "a
young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or
political party."
