MSNBC hires Cenk Uygur

Guest commentator named contributor, substitute anchor

MSNBC has hired frequent guest commentator Cenk Uygur as a contributor and substitute anchor. Uygur, the founder of popular live web video show “The Young Turks” (Uygur is Turkish), began appearing as a regular Friday guest on the net starting at the beginning of the summer. He has filled in for regular MSNBC staffers on “The Ed Show, “The Dylan Ratigan Show,” and “Countdown with Kieth Olbermann.”

When the Peacock cabler announced last year that it was searching for a 10 p.m. news show, Uygur tried and failed to get “The Young Turks” picked up for the 10 p.m. slot that eventually went to Lawrence O’Donnell. “Turks” is broadcast on XM/Sirius satellite radio.
