America’s largest progressive news network - today announced that former Ohio State Senator, political icon, and self-proclaimed “hell-raising humanitarian” Nina Turner is joining the network as the host of an all-new daily live news show Unbossed with Nina Turner, slated to launch October 17, 2022. TYT continues its growth and expansion with the addition of Unbossed, where Turner will expose how the elites in government, the media, and other sectors game the system and how people can join forces to fix the corruption and restore democracy.
Sen. Turner said, "I am excited to continue my journey with the TYT family and to give voice to Americans frustrated with the current state of politics. Being the Executive Producer and Host of Unbossed gives me the opportunity to delve deeper into the ways in which the corrupting forces of our political system hinder the creation of a people’s agenda in this country. We will highlight the ways in which many of our elected officials are bought off by special interests and how those special interests impact the fabric of our daily lives. The team at Unbossed is ready to speak with the experts, roll out the receipts, and expose the corrupting forces and individuals that are a threat to collective liberty. We will bring soul, substance, truth, and hope to your feed every weekday. I can't wait for you to join me in October."
Turner is known for her political experience and leadership. She was the national co-chair of the Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign, served as a national surrogate for the Sanders 2016 Democratic presidential primary, and served as president of the grassroots organization, Our Revolution. On Unbossed, Turner will share her leadership and organizing experiences to give the audience the tools and motivation to make positive change happen in their communities. Viewers can expect strong commentary from Turner on the Biden Administration, establishment democrats, and what progressives need to do moving forward.
TYT founder and host of the flagship news and politics show The Young Turks Cenk Uygur said, "Nina Turner is one of the strongest voices in the progressive movement and American politics today. She has challenged the establishment in a way that has them running scared. That's exactly the type of fearless attitude we love at TYT. The media is supposed to challenge the powerful, not comfort them. There's a reason why the elites in Washington are afraid of Nina Turner, it's because she's Unbossed."
TYT recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and the company’s mission to drive positive change remains evident in the programming line-up. Additionally, the network is experiencing aggressive growth and has added new shows like Indisputable with Dr. Rashad Richey - most recently named the fastest growing news show in America by the Hicks Evaluation Group - The Watchlist with Jayar Jackson, and is continuing to add new contributors to their Rebel HQ channel.
TYT Head of Programming Judith Benezra said, “Senator Nina Turner is a powerful and influential leader of the progressive movement, and the addition of her voice to TYT's programming slate further affirms that TYT is the 'Home of Progressives.' The show's title Unbossed is inspired by Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm's signature campaign slogan, which perfectly encapsulated the principled trailblazer as uncorrupted by money in politics and beholden to no one. Unbossed with Nina Turner is an extension of that ethos, as Senator Turner will call out the elites in media, politics, law enforcement and the financial sector, and be the voice for the people they try to crush along the way.”
Unbossed with Nina Turner starts streaming on TYT on October 17th via YouTube.com/Unbossed, Facebook, and on Twitch, and will be available as a podcast on Apple podcasts, Spotify, Google podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Turner is currently a contributor on TYT with videos published daily on Rebel HQ.
