The Young Turks, a YouTube based political talk-show series aimed at young voters, will broadcast live from Satchmo’s lounge in Loyola’s Danna Student Center Oct. 31 at 7 p.m. CST for the eighth episode of a national, 12-campus tour focusing on this year’s presidential election. The show will air on The Young Turks YouTube channel and FUSION’s cable TV channel.

“From in-depth discussions on education reform and international terrorism, to man-on-the-street Q and As and game show segments, The Young Turks on FUSION is engaging college students and viewers nationwide leading up to the presidential election,” said Patricia Murret, Loyola’s associate director of public affairs.

According to Murret, The Young Turks political talk show is the most watched series on their YouTube channel with 4 billion viewers and 6 million subscribers.

“Loyola University New Orleans is pleased to be reaching such an important audience during one of the nation’s most critical and historic presidential elections,” Murret said. “We are also pleased to have been selected as a stop on The Young Turks’ 12-stop nationwide tour, and are in good company alongside universities ranging from USC to Harvard University.”

Loyola students may participate in the show’s live studio audience by registering through Eventbrite which can be accessed on the homepage of Loyola’s website. Participating in the event is free but limited audience spots are available.
