This January I’ll be moving to Los Angeles. I’ll still host Tech News Today and Frame Rate. I’ll do them over Skype at least to start. I will also continue to host Sword and Laser. Audio is over Skype already and I’ll fly up to Petaluma to shoot Sword and Laser video once or twice a month. Which will give me a chance to be in studio for TNT!
Why would I do this? because my wife, Eileen Rivera, was offered an insanely awesome job at YouTube’s LA flagship studio. It’s a dream job for her. And thankfully, Leo Laporte at TWiT is supportive of my need to move and will allow me to continue to host from afar.
In fact, it will give TWiT a chance to make remote hosting better than it has been until now. We’re already talking about the best ways to set up our “LA Bureau”.
Eileen starts in November, but I won’t move until after the first of the year. Just in case the Mayans are right. No need to pay for the truck if there’s not going to be a planet in January you know.
Yes, this will affect the dynamic of TNT slightly, but I think we’re good enough to accommodate it. Frame Rate shouldn’t change at all.
So all in all, I’m looking forward to the move and hopefully most of you who follow my stuff will hardly notice.
Except for my deep deep tan.
