The Young Turks Sees Iowa Viewer Surge

Los Angeles-based political news site The Young Turks says that it saw record ratings for its live coverage of the Iowa Caucases earlier this week. The online news and politics show said it saw 256,000 unique views over the course of its seven hours of live coverage, which was the largest audience ever for a live broadcast for the company. The broadcast featured founder Cenk Uygur, plus Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, Ben Mankiewicz, Jimmy Dore and Jordan Chariton. The Young Turks says it has been running its daily live streaming show for ten years; the show has a particularly strong following among millennials.
