Ana Kasparian’s Age, Bio and Rise to Fame
The media star was born on July 7, 1986, to Armenian parents who lived at Northridge, Los Angeles, California, where she was also raised. Her first language, the one in which her parents brought her up with is said to be Armenia but she is without a doubt, a citizen of the United States of America.
Ana went to the California State University where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism in 2007. She would later major in Political Science and Government, graduating in 2010.
Ana credits her pursuit of a career in journalism to the journalist Barbara Walters of ABC’s 20/20 show. Her first job after graduation in 2007 was as an assistant producer in the Los Angeles CBS radio station. Although she was glad to have a job the enthusiastic journalist found the work to be very restricted as it did not allow her to do what she would have loved nor express her views on matters being reported. So in the bid to increase her job options, she enrolled for a master’s degree program.
The journalist landed her breakthrough job as a host for The Young Turks’ show and though she was quite sceptical about the name of the show, her thoughts were settled when it was explained to her that the name was referring to people who rebelled against society’s expectations. She was supposed to work on the show for two weeks but because of her keen interest in it, she managed to prolong her stay. In an interview with Forbes, she revealed that her love for the show was basically because it gave her the opportunity to air her views and not just follow a robotic manner of presenting news.
The talented journalist became the writer for Raw Story in 2015 and in addition to her journalism career, she is also a Professor and Lecturer at California State University, Northridge where she gives lectures on broadcast journalism.
