Leave it to the youthful and inventive host of Web program The David Pakman Show to turn today’s announcement into a viewer guessing game. Per the video below, Pakman (pronounced “Pack-munn”) shared a bunch of voicemails from Wednesday and overnight, in response to his request for viewers to surmise the identity of today’s “special guest:”

Several fans of the show were spot-on with their suggestion that Thursday’s drop-in would be Cenk Uygur. Together with his The Young Turks co-host Ana Kasparian, Uygur officially welcomed Pakman into the TYT YouTube fold.

Pakman has grown his donation-supported program with some constant and very clever use of social media. FishbowlLA looks forward to seeing how the current events show grows under TYT stewardship. Uygur also hinted that there will be several more TYT network partnership announcements in the near future.
