Channel Awesome in 2009 had the family of contributors expand even more than the previous year as The Game Heroes and Team Four Star joined the ranks. In addition, more talent was brought in as the site's audience grew larger and larger. The site took in talent from YouTube and other places on the Internet as it continued to take the web by storm.
