Good news for progressive TV cable news junkies!  Cenk Uygur will be back on television.

Like Keith Olbermann, Cenk Uygur got a little too controversial for the suits at MSNBC and was nudged out. But Cenk and his "Young Turks" will soon be joining Keith at Current TV. In fact, they will be the lead-in at 7:00pm ET for Olbermann's 8:00pm "Countdown." Uygur's new show will begin sometime later this year. In addition, Current TV is looking to find a  a lead-out show for "Countdown" by January.

According to Uygur:

Current is the perfect home for our show. We wanted to be in a place that is both independent and truly progressive, not owned and encumbered by a media conglomerate. Does it get any better for a progressive than working where Al Gore and Joel Hyatt are your bosses, and Keith Olbermann is your colleague? ItŐs an honor to be the lead-in program for Keith Olbermann. Add to that we will work with David Bohrman, who has been creating unique and great television programming for decades. His vision for Current is exactly in line with ours.  When you bring all of these people together with The Young Turks, watch out, we're coming!
