HuffPost Alums Pivot to Late Night Talk Show Aimed at Millenials

You may most recently remember him, Jacob Soboroff, from the west coast end of HuffPost Live. She, Cara Santa Maria, is a former senior science correspondent for The Huffington Post and host of embedded HuffPo Web series Talk Nerdy To Me.

Together the pair are now co-hosting TakePart Live, the weekday late-night talk show component (12 a.m. ET/9 p.m. PT) of Participant Media’s new TV network Pivot, which launched yesterday. The pair looked comfortable on their handsome new set as they discussed – yes, live – Edward Snowden and various other topics.

The program promises to find the “conversations and stories that matter to Millennials” and hopes to establish itself as a key part of a Participant spin wheel that also includes takepart.com. Pivot is just getting rolling as far as broadcast partners  are concerned. On AT&T U-Verse for example, you can find Soboroff, Maria and co. at channel 1492.
