Tech News Today

Tech News Today is the TWIT network's first daily tech news show. The original hosting panel included former CNET personality Tom Merritt, abc news correspondent Becky Worley (Tue-Thu), and Tech News 2Night anchor Sarah Lane (Mon/Fri) with producer Erik Lanigan. After Becky's departure, Sarah Lane began co-hosting every weekday. After Lanigan's departure, Jason Howell took over as producer. Later Iyaz Akhtar joined as co-host though, due to the limiting factors of space and equipment, he could only be on air when there was not another in studio guest. Starting in June 2012 the show format was changed, opening with The News Fuse daily headlines in order to open up more time for discussion of the top stories.

In December 2013, Iyaz and Tom both left TWiT. Mike Elgan was hired as News Director and took over hosting bringing with him a major format change. In February, Sarah Lane began anchoring Tech News 2Night and stopped co-hosting Tech News Today. While there are many recurring guest co-hosts, there has not been a replacement for Sarah's position.

The show currently airs live weekdays at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET with the on demand download available later in the day.




The theme for TNT was created by Dan Lueders, who created the themes for many other TWiT netcasts including iPad Today.
