Tom Merritt would lead the DTNS/TechCrunch reporting team.

According to reports, TechCrunch is eyeing a possible takeover of the immensely popular Daily Tech News Show. DTNS, run by Tom Merritt, would fall under the umbrella of the massive AOL company with the ensuing corporate resources to allow Merritt to essentially supplant TWiT as the premiere destination for daily tech content. In the buy-out, Merritt would reportedly retain complete editorial control but ultimately answer to his bosses at AOL in New York.

rkZR1jIhNo word yet on how Sarah Lane is taking the possible news. The editorial board at TotalDrama is certain that she’d be thrilled, but we don’t yet have a comment from her.

UPDATE: Apparently the report is untrue, as Tom as responded on twitter to a fan’s question.

  1. This site is satire, parody, and fun. Taking most posts literally will spoil it for you.

    So no, Techcrunch is not buying DTNS.

    They are looking at bidding on the TWiT assets at the upcoming bankruptcy auction.

  2. Quit making stories up. You could get sued someday, oh but wait, maybe you trolls want to get sued by Leo, Sarah, Tom, Lisa, Mike and the other people formerly and still on TWiT? I mean, find things to do.
    And before you say anything, I didn’t have school today because classes were cancelled due to the snow.

  3. Tech crunch video should embed his you tube show everyday. Delete old episode and embed new. They get zero control or ownership. It will make the TC site more viable for video as a place to go. TC doesn’t have to create everything when there is free content.

    To be nice, they should maybe offer to pay for hosting if they make money off of it.

    Youtube embeds are free.
