Ana's Kasparian Upbringing and Career Beginnings

Anahit Misak Kasparian was born in the United States on July 7, 1986, to Armenian immigrant parents. As a child, Kasparian enjoyed dancing ballet and performed professionally from three to nineteen.

She attended Valley Alternative Magnet High School and graduated in 2004. She completed a bachelor's in journalism at California State University, Northridge, and a master's in political science at California State University, Los Angeles.[1]

Besides having a journalism background, Kasparian's decision to become a journalist was "triggered" by Barbara Walters, a well-known American television personality.[2]

Kasparian entered the journalism world right after getting her college degree, becoming an assistant producer at CBS Radio news stations in Los Angeles.

In 2005, she joined The Young Turks as a co-host and quickly established herself as one of the most prominent voices on the channel.

The show's name, however, was criticized for its association with the Ottoman Empire and its history of human rights abuses, particularly against ethnic and religious minorities such as the Armenians. Cenk Uygur, the show's founder, chose the name as a symbol of the show's progressive and populist stance.[3]

Today, the TYT network is one of the most popular and widely-watched independent news and talk shows on the internet, with millions of viewers tuning in every day.

Kasparian has also won a few awards for her journalism work, including a Host and a Streamy Award for Best News and Culture Show and Webby for Best Web Personality.

She is also a feature writer for Raw Story and a journalism professor. In the fall of 2013, she began teaching broadcast journalism at California State University Northridge, where she earned her degree in journalism and her graduate degree in political science.

Many universities, conferences, and political events have featured Kasparian's keynote speeches, including Politifest at UCLA, The State of Women and Girls Address at USC, and the Berkeley Forum.

Among the many established publications in which Kasparian's work has appeared are the New York Times, Time Magazine, and many others.[4]

In 2016 Kasparian was also placed on Forbes's “30 under 30” list, which was another significant accomplishment in her career.[5]
