Cenk Uygur Net Worth: Cenk Uygur is a Turkish American political commentator, internet personality and political activist who has a net worth of $3.5 million. Cenk Uygur has earned his net worth as host of the talk show " The Young Turks" and his many appearances on television. Born Cenk Kadir Uygur on March 21, 1970, in Istanbul, Turkey, he rose to fame as the main host and co-founder of progressive Internet talk radio show and eponymous TV show, The Young Turks (TYT). Even though he was born in the cosmopolitan heart of Turkey, Uygur was raised from age eight in the United States. Once he got his law degree from Columbia Law School, Uygur started working as an associate attorney at law firms in Washington, D.C. and New York. In February 2002, he launched The Young Turks with an aim to create a show that will be mainly liberal, but yet entertaining. His moderate Republican political views were long gone when he started commenting politics with the progressive eyes of a liberal. A staunch critic of both the Republican and Democratic parties as he was, Uygur appeared on MSNBC as a political commentator in 2010. Later on, he hosted a weeknight commentary show on the channel for nearly six months, until Al Sharpton took his place. But soon after he left MSNBC, Uygur filled Keith Olberman's shoes serving as the chief news officer of a show on Current TV that started airing on December 5, 2011.
