The Young Turks Are Now on Hulu, Too

/ Mar 24, 2014

The Young Turks are now on AOL On

The Young Turks Network, quite possibly the biggest name in journalism on YouTube, is expanding to Hulu.

The network, which was founded and is led by former Current TV host Cenk Uygur, is launching two shows on Hulu based on the news outlet’s existing fare on YouTube. “The Young Turks,” a condensed 30-minute version of TYT’s self-titled two-hour daily show, as well as a 30-minute weekly version of its daily pop-culture show “PopTrigger,” will be accessible via a new TYT channel on Hulu. (The channel itself can be found on Hulu’s third-party networks page.)

“The Young Turks” is hosted by Uygur and Ana Kasparian, and covers the news of the world (politics, economics, pop culture, social trends, and lifestyle) with a progressive bent — which has led the show to grab more than 30 million views a month on YouTube per month, according to the company. The Young Turks Network overall, which includes other owned-and-operated shows like “PopTrigger” and “TYT Sports,” generates more than 60 million views on the world’s biggest video site.

Now, the company has its sights set on the world of video outside of YouTube.

“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,” said Steve Oh, COO of TYT Network, in a statement. “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.”

Oh also tells the LA Times that TYT Network has its sights set on cable, pitching various weekly show ideas to networks — though with no intention of simply doing a cable version of what “The Young Turks” already is on YouTube.

TYT joins other YouTube-based content providers like Geek & Sundry, Above Average, and Base79 in launching channels on Hulu.
