How did Cenk Uygur build his net worth?
Cenk Uygur's net worth has been built on his success with "The Young Turks," the leftist YouTube political commentary channel he co-hosts with Ana Kasparian.
Born in Turkey and living in the US since the age of eight, Cenk Kadir Uygur is a left-leaning journalist who rose to internet prominence with his popular podcast, The Young Turks. His roots are in law and journalism, and his political interests and oratorical skills equip him to produce and host this liberally-rooted show. The result is the production of insightful yet entertaining political commentary, which his viewers can't get enough of.
His show launched on Sirius satellite radio in 2002 and then on the Air America radio network in 2006 and 2008.
Uygur has claimed since 2011 that "The Young Turks" is the largest online show in the world and, in 2015, boldly stated his was the first on the streaming service.
Uygur expanded into a network of channels and shows by leveraging the popularity and viewer appeal to founding "Pop Trigger" in 2007. Over its lifespan, "The Young Turks" has accumulated eight billion views and over 13 million subscribers across all the platforms they stream. Video of the show is streamed daily on TYT.com, as well as on YouTube, various streaming platforms, a handful of local television channels throughout the US, and podcast platforms.
The channel is monetized with ads, although they say they'll refuse to work with brands that do not espouse their values. As far back as 2011, it was reported that TYT had made $1 million from ads displayed to viewers. They've made many millions more since then.
In 2017, TYT raised $20 million in funding led by 3L Capital. Besides ad revenue, TYT makes $10/month from each of its 30,000+ monthly subscribers.
Cenk is the uncle of ex-TYT commentator turned streamer Hasan Piker.
