    Truly sad news. I've been following him since the BOL days. Best of luck to him.

    I will keep an eye out on what he does next with interest.

    It seems he was fired, or his contract not renewed. Some blogs stated that he didn't expect it. Must really be difficult for TwiT to have their news lead remotely managing studio. I really like the old setup where he, Sarah Lane, and Iyaz Akhtar host the TNT show inside the studio. I like Tom's grasp of the tech news, better than Mike Elgan's, based on podcasts I've watched where Mike Elgan guested. TNT show even won an award under Tom's leadership. Sad news for TWiT. Let's see where Tom goes.

    I was surprised by this. Sad news indeed. Tom's (fairly) unbiased opinions on tech news makes TNT really compelling to watch/listen. He always tries to see the other side of the coin, unlike most of the podcasts I listen to. I hope he still will be doing tech related podcasts though. I heard he will be teaming up with Scott Johnson. FrogPants Studios! - Tom Merritt and Scott Johnson launching a new show!
