Over the past few months, SourceFed has undergone a significant reshuffling, with founding members departing the offbeat news program and fresh faces replacing them. The latest personality to add her name to the SourceFed cast is Bree Essrig.
Essrig is best known for her personal YouTube channel, where she posts everything from impressions to song parodies to drunken movie reviews. We’ve previously seen her on other channels as well; she served as a host for The Young Turks’ PopTrigger and appeared in the Dr. 1Up web series on Machinima Prime.
With SourceFed, Essrig will serve as one of several presenters for the channel’s typical blend of serious news and offbeat, humorous commentary. Here she is, in her first week on the job, delivering a typical SourceFed story alongside co-host William Haynes.
“We are very excited to have Bree joining the Discovery Digital Networks family and the SourceFed team,” said Jeremy Azevedo of Discovery Digital Networks, which owns SourceFed thanks to its 2013 acquisition of Philip DeFranco’s digital portfolio. “SourceFed is the ultimate destination for pop culture news, anchored by the best personalities on the web. Bree is a rare, multi-faceted talent, and I can’t wait to see what her unique mix of humor, intelligence and creativity will bring to this incredible brand.”
Essrig’s arrival at SourceFed comes three months after Joe Bereta, one of the channel’s original hosts, left to join Defy Media. Essrig is one of several new hosts who have joined the team, and she has already appeared in a number of videos that can be found on the SourceFed channel.
