Seriously, what is happening?!
If you've ever watched a Philip DeFranco video or have even a marginal knowledge of YouTube history, then you will have 100% heard of SourceFed. Founded by the YouTube Original Channels Initiative, this quirky news show quickly became one of the most popular personality-centred productions on the entire platform. But now, five years after it was set up, it will officially be closed, one week from now.
News broke earlier this week that Group Nine Media, the Discovery-backed company that supports various media brands, will be closing down SourceFed and other popular shows such as SourceFedNERD and People Be Like. To celebrate the success of their channel and say farewell to fans, several old and current hosts all came together to present what could potentially be the final episode of Table Talk. No, you have something in your eye.
You can watch this final SourceFed party in the video below.
The channel, which boasted a total of 1.7 million subscribers and 906 million video views, saw the likes of Philip DeFranco make a name for himself as a businessman as well as an Internet star.
In another video shared to the SourceFed channel, Ava Gordy, Mike Falzone, Candance Carrizales and Steven Suptic all gathered together to announce that this would be their final week on the channel. They also shared how fans could get involved with saying goodbye with a bang by joining their final podcast episode and watching their farewell live-stream on Friday March 24th at 5pm EDT. And then, it's goodbye.
