Current TV Counts Down to The Young Turks

Ahead of the December 5 debut of The Young Turks on Current TV, the show has been introducing website visitors to various behind-the-scenes team members. It’s a great way to put a different face on the program.

Jackson started out as an intern on The Young Turks’ radio show and offers a good primer on how to pronounce Cenk Uygur’s name.

Other show staff profiled this week include director Jesus Godov [video] and producer Dave Koller [video]. Both have been with the program since the very beginning.

The back alley location for the interviews and convivial tone of each portrait bodes well for the program. It’s going to be really fun to watch how Jackson and co. make use of this expanded TV platform opportunity.
