Tech News Today

We’re barely a month into the new Tech News Today, and avid viewers ranging from our parents to some guy who randomly found us on his Roku are telling us they like what we’re doing!
We’ve been playing with the format all month, and zeroing in on what we think fans of daily tech news might want: Top stories, engaging interviews, and a healthy dose of humor and personality.
First, we want to give you a rundown of all the important tech news of the day-- It could be anything with a chip in it, the next social media platform, virtual and augmented reality, machine learning, self-driving cars, smart appliances, drones, and so much more. Beyond that, how are these behemoth tech companies fighting for our collectively sticky eyeballs? It’s all fair game.
But the important distinction is that, whatever we talk about, it has to be the stuff that affects our lives. To that end, we might choose to pass on things like mergers, acquisitions, and quarterly earnings. That is, of course, unless they truly mean something to the big picture.
We aren’t the only voice you’ll hear on this show, nor do we want to be. In addition to our creative team at TWiT, we are drawing heavily on the opinions and perspectives of our daily guests who will join us in contributing to the entire show. That guest might be a journalist, a podcaster, a YouTuber, or just a tech expert. If they share a passion of technology, their point of view is valuable to the greater conversation. We’ll also interview other journalists, experts, professors, and creators whenever stories arise that can benefit from their background and expertise.
Further, we want you to be a part of the show too! Send us your comments, suggestions, videos, voicemails, and social updates, and we’ll do our very best to bring you into the conversation.
We know that everyone is busy and you have endless choices of what to watch and listen to. Most of all, we want you to know that we value your time and are grateful that you've chosen to spend some of your time with us.

2016 Programming Changes

As we head into the new year and start the process of building our new studio, we will be making a few changes to our programming schedule.

Starting January 4, 2016, Know How is expanding to two episodes per week! One episode will be recorded offline and released on Mondays at 3PM, and the other episode will record live on Thursdays at 11AM. Monday’s Know How will be dedicated to lighter builds, tech reviews, and solutions for common tech problems, while Thursday’s show will focus on more involved projects and maker segments.

With the expansion of Know How, the show will also include coding tricks and projects, and we are canceling Coding 101 with its last episode to release on December 21, 2015. Father Robert Ballecer’s co-host Louis Maresca will still make regular appearances on Know How and This Week in Enterprise Tech, and we are excited that he will be staying on our network.

With Megan Morrone and Jason Howell taking over Tech News Today, we have decided that it’s time to merge our two daily news shows. With this merger our single daily news show will be called Tech News Today recording at 4PM each weekday, starting on January 4, 2016.

With the evolution of iPad Today into iOS Today, we are going to fold the content covered in iFive for the iPhone into this show. We will release the final episode of iFive for the iPhone today (December 16, 2015).

Before You Buy will also release its last episode on December 18, 2015. After careful consideration we have decided to fold marquee product reviews into The New Screen Savers and review relevant products on shows like MacBreak Weekly, Windows Weekly, All About Android, iOS Today, etc. To follow all of our reviews on YouTube, be sure to subscribe to the TWiT YouTube Channel and "save" TWiT Product Reviews & Picks to your playlists.

Lastly, we are increasing our presence at marquee tech events, conferences, and shows for 2016. We will be covering CES in Las Vegas (January 6-9); Developerweek in San Francisco (February 12-18); Mobile World Congress (February 22-25); SXSW (March 11-15); and more to be announced in 2016!

Tech News Today in 2016

As 2016 approaches, we are making a few changes to TWiT’s News Department.

Mike Elgan has decided to move on from TWiT to focus on his writing and resume his world travels. We wish him the very best, and he will still be a regular guest on both This Week in Google and This Week in Tech. You can follow his adventures as a "digital nomad" here.

We are excited to announce Jason Howell and Megan Morrone as the new hosts of Tech News Today. We look forward to this pairing and seeing how the show evolves in the new year. The redesigned Tech News Today launches on January 4, 2016, and you can subscribe here.

(Megan Morrone will be anchoring TNT in the interim, through the rest of 2015).

Stay tuned! We will have more updates soon on changes to the TWiT Live schedule for 2016.
