I’ve been on a Young Turks binge lately, just absorbing anything and everything by the seminal online news network. And now, they’ve given me more to cover: In the aftermath of their 1 billion views party, they’ve now grown their on-air talent by two.
Lending credence to the notion that The Young Turks are stepping up their game en route to 2 billion views, the news and politics channel has just added veteran hosts Dave Rubin and Cara Santa Maria to the network.
Rubin is the host of a panel show, “The Rubin Report,” which will bring more depth and comedy to The Young Turks network, while Santa Maria, formerly of the popular “Talk Nerdy To Me” on the Huffington Post, will add science knowledge and information in her new role.
Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks is naturally excited about the new additions.“TYT is all about authenticity and having fun,” he said via a press release. “ We know from working with Dave and Cara that they bring both of these qualities to the table. We’re excited to be a billion views strong and continuing to grow. We’re always looking for new ways to bring information to our viewers.”
Hiring attractive and smart people to break down current events is certainly one good way to do it.
