His hiring is part of a planned 2014 transformation and expansion of TWiT’s News Division, which includes our Breaking News coverage, as well as the launch of our new evening news show Tech News 2Night on January 13, 2014.
Between the late 1990s and 2003, Mike worked as chief editor for a variety of technology publications (including Windows Magazine), most of which he founded, co-founded or launched.
