Cenk Uygur Joining Current TV
Current TV has claimed another former MSNBC host: Cenk Uygur, who previously hosted “MSNBC Live,” will host “The Young Turks” ahead of Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown,” the network announced Tuesday.
The network will work with Uygur to develop a televised version of his online show “The Young Turks,” which covers politics and pop culture. The new show will air at 7 p.m. ET.
"Cenk Uygur has a strong grasp of what audiences seek: context and insight about the news and complex issues that affect their lives, unfettered by corporate influences. He has a unique and compelling way of boiling it down for his viewers," said Current Chairman and co-founder Al Gore.
