Philip DeFranco

Nominated in Creator of the Decade

About Philip DeFranco

Philip DeFranco has come a long way from shooting videos with a $20 B&W camera. For the past decade, The Philip DeFranco Show has set the standard for YouTube news. Posting almost every day, Philip keeps 5.8M+ subscribers informed in well researched videos covering pop culture, politics, society, and many other topics. But his biggest contribution to YouTube may have been SourceFed, a channel where multiple hosts touched on a wider range of topics in various shows every day. Sadly, after five years, SourceFed posted its final video in 2017. But Philip can still be found on his own account, as well as TheDeFrancoFam and Philly D channels in parenting videos and vlogs, respectively. Always ready for more, he launched a Patreon campaign in May to help further expand his news empire!
