The Young Turks (TYT) is the name of a progressive political commentary program hosted primarily by Cenk Uygur. |
The show, known as The Young Turks, broadcasts via live web stream, YouTube and Roku. Politically liberal/progressive, TYT was founded in 2002 as a liberal talkshow on Sirius Satellite Radio as that radio's first original talk programming.
The Young Turks claims to be the first Internet TV news show and the world's largest online news show. Video of the show is streamed daily on their website and is available as a podcast.
The show offers Internet-only video content via their YouTube channel, which in April 2012 averaged 750,000 views a day, and over 750 million views since December 2005. On 20 April 2013 The Young Turks announced that their YouTube channel had received over 1 billion video views. The Young Turks offers a paid members-only Postgame Show, an Internet only wrap-up show.
The Young Turks also have a network of other shows on separate YouTube channels known collectively as the TYT Network. The shows are produced from a studio at YouTube Space LA in Los Angeles, California. From 2011 to 2013 a second show called The Young Turks with Cenk Uygur aired on Current TV.
