TVOT SF 2017 Keynote: Cenk Uygur and Ben Mankiewicz of The Young Turks

Cenk Uygur and Ben Mankiewicz

[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT SF 2017 keyote by Cenk Uygur and Ben Mankiewicz, co-founders of the online/social-video news organization, The Young Turks. The keynote was described in the show brochure as follows:  "Described by The Independent as 'the most watched online news show in the world,' The Young Turks has received well over 3 billion views on YouTube, where it currently garners over 200 million views per month. The left-leaning program is also the number-one news and politics show with Millennials, according to data from comScore, Tubular Labs and OpenSlate; and has given rise to The Young Turks Network, an MCN that distributes an extensive line-up of programming on YouTube, Roku, Hulu and other platforms. In this keynote session, The Young Turks co-founders, CEO Cenk Uygur and commentator Ben Mankiewicz, will discuss the strategic decisions--as well as the broader social, cultural and political shifts--that have given rise to the show's success; and outline how they expect The Young Turks show and network to evolve and expand going forward."

(Note: We will be publishing audio and video recordings of a range of TVOT SF 2017 panels and keynotes over the coming weeks; and we will be announcing the next TVOT show shortly.)
