The Young Turks Cenk Uygur Fans Rally For MSNBC Slot

Posted: Friday, August 21, 2009 | Posted by Chico Brisbane | Labels: , , , ,

Could radio personality Cenk Uygur be making the leap from progressive radio to primetime cable television like Ed Shultz and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC. Uygur, a 29 year old attorney turned political talker is not shy about his desire to fill the 10pm slot at MSNBC following Rachel Maddow.

Needless to say, I don't care who you are, Maddow is going to be one tough act to follow. That being said, Uygur is no staranger to the cable news circuit and has made appearances on MSNBC, CNN's Headline News, ABC, Fox News, and Al Jazeera just to name a few. In spite of MSNBC being whisy-washy on looking to fill the 10pm slot, they won't have to look too far if Uygur's fans have anything to say about it.

In addition to his radio show The Young Turks, Uygur also host the internet show Meet The Bloggers. Currently The Young Turks YouTube channel garners more then 3 million hits per month and being a regular viewer myself, Cenk Uygur could very well be the missing puzzle piece to complete an awesome weekday lineup at MSNBC.

ChicoBrisbane.Com certainly hopes that when and if MSNBC decides to fill the 10pm slot, they realize that Uygur was made for that spot. It's got his name written all over it.
Matthews - Olbermann - Maddow - Uygur! - 5 days a week, what more could a progressive audience ask for?
