Current TV has lined up its production team for its next primetime program, “The Young Turks.” Steve Lange has been named EP of the show, with Roland Woerner serving as senior producer and Genji Keen as director. Cenk Uygur is the primary host of the program, though he will be joined by his “TYT” colleagues Jesus Godoy, Ana Kasparian, Jayar Jackson and Dave Koller during the show.
Lange was previously a VP for the NBC O&O in Los Angeles, and has served as EP of the syndicated entertainment news show “Extra.”
“Steve, Roland and Genji all share Cenk’s passion for telling it like it is. This is a seasoned group of television veterans who bring years of expertise to the table and will be able to deliver a first-class, multi-platform production, live, each and every night,” said Current president David Bohrman in a statement. “We couldn’t be more pleased about having them join the Current TV family as we launch an ambitious roster of nightly programming that is sure to be a conversation starter in the coming election year.”
