Ana Kasparian is an Armenian-American left-wing political pundit and the co-host and producer for the online news show The Young Turks. Kasparian began working as a fill-in producer for The Young Turks in 2007, and is now co-host of the main show and host of The Point on the TYT Network. She also appeared on the TV version of the show that aired on Current TV.
Born in Los Angeles, Kasparian is the daughter of Armenian immigrant parents. Her great grandparents on her father's side experienced first hand the Armenian genocide in 1915. Ana was raised in the Reseda community of the San Fernando Valley. Kasparian grew up speaking Armenian as her first language and started kindergarten without being able to speak a word of English. Kasparian graduated from Valley Alternative Magnet High School of Van Nuys in 2004 and California State University, Northridge (CSUN) in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts, Journalism (BAJ).
Kasparian was an assistant producer with CBS Radio news stations in Los Angeles, first with KFWB and then KNX. She has also worked with AOL News, YouTube, TidalTv and On Point. After becoming a fill-in host in April 2007, Kasparian became the producer and co-host with Cenk Uygur of the progressive talk radio on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and internet show/TV show The Young Turks. Kasparian says that young people are interested in news, but "they see network anchors as simply folks who read tele-prompters." She co-hosted TYT University, a show focused on issues faced by university students for some years, and now hosts another TYT Network show, The Point. Kasparian is an agnostic atheist.
She completed her Master of Political Science in 2010. She now teaches a class in journalism at CSUN.
Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur have been involved with many interviews in the course of the Young Turks. One of those interviews was with controversial pastor James David Manning, a right-wing U.S. Protestant fundamentalist pastor, during which he said "your contributions to this show are your boobs, and not your brains." Kasparian "fired back" at the pastor, calling the remarks he made at her "sexist." She called pastor Manning "ignorant", and noted he was a man "who got a PhD from an unaccredited institution founded." Kasparian has been interviewed for documentaries, including The Culture High in 2014.
