Gore: Cenk Uygur joining ‘truly independent’ Current TV
Cenk Uygur and Al Gore announced this week that The Young Turks were taking their talents to Current TV.
The show will air weeknights in the 7 p.m. ET hour prior to Countdown with Keith Olbermann. It is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2011.
After leaving MSNBC in July, Uygur explained that the network “didn’t want to challenge power.”
“We want you to keep on speaking truth to power,” Current TV founder Al Gore told Uygur in a video posted on the network’s website. “You’re on a truly independent network now.”
