FBLA Exclusive: Cenk Uygur Signs as a Contributor at MSNBC

The host of The Young Turks – YouTube sensation Cenk Uygur told us that he is now a paid contributor at MSNBC. He will be on air regularly and fill-in host now as needed. Uygur has been subbing for Dylan Ratigan and Ed Schultz this year. This week he guest hosted the prime time spot for Keith Olbermann. This, of course is really exciting for YouTubers everywhere as one of their own has been given a real job. As we’ve said before, Cenk is the Tila Tequila of political talk shows. The Internet vet him and now he’s on the ol’ teevee.

Uygur tells FBLA, “It’s basically serving as a sixth man coming off the bench whenever any of the shows need me.” As if we understand sports metaphors.

Congrats Cenk!
