Tonya Hall Quits TWiT

Where in the World is Tonya Hall?

Six months ago, we asked “Will Tonya Hall Ever Be Allowed On-Screen Again?

Today, we have the answer: No.

The substantial woman whose marquee entertainment show — Marketing Mavericks — was put on permanent hiatus in 2015 was demoted to a podcast booker.

Soon after, she humiliated Sarah Lane, herself, the TWiT Network and journalism in general at the Crunchies.

Tee hee!

Tonya Hall’s reputation may have first started to suffer in 2014, when she threw an advertiser under the busnow official TWiT policy — but we appreciated her larger-than-life personality.

She will now retire to the great state of Colorado, the least obese and most active state in the nation.

TWiT had a party and nobody invited Leo Laporte. How could they have forgotten? He admits again in the video above that he has to buy friends. It would be sad he if hadn’t created the problem himself — pretend an appropriate link is here since the entire site would apply to this statement — over the years.

Farewell, Tonya Hall. Farewell.

Thanks to an anon from #drama for the video.

  1. I’m going to miss Tanya shaking her fucking ass all over the set. Remember that time she bent over in front of Leo on The New Screen Savers and he got a fucking hard-on? I can’t blame him, from the looks of those leggings she wasn’t wearing any underwear. Skanky, nasty thang.

    Colorado will be great for her. I’d like to roll a spliff in her butt cheeks, and by spliff I mean my cock.

  2. Hi Tonya,

    They moved me downstairs into “Storage B”. You’re right near me in the “Colorado” storage room / windowless cubbie hole.

    Did you get to keep your red stapler?

  3. Was someone with terrible writing skills responsible for this shit?

    Did a program auto search this site for “Tonya” and then put connecting words between the search results which were converted into links?

    Leica try and get new writers here. I appreciate finding out what’s going on at TWiT here but you have to give up on humor and links.

    If the untalented Lecia had a drop of analytical ability he would put 2+2 together and realize the new hire in the previous article is probably replacing Tonya or A current TNT host is quitting.

    Some guy linked a video showing Leo saying he is moving out west. What’s the deal? Is that a 2nd home?

    1. We suspected Jason is fired/offsite producer. His AAA2 show was canned. He came back to host shows yesterday though when Leo left. Many people were asking if he was fired. Unlike #FakeNews, we waited to see if that was the reason before writing about his departure.

      We have the clip of his “moving to Washington or Oregon”. It’s not impressive. He was just lying to the guests in his office studio as usual. Another version of “oh we loooooooooooooooooooove Oregon”. He’s not going anywhere.

      Thanks for the input, as always.

      1. I wish Total Drama bothered to put in short, twitter-like notification of “developments” with TWiT. I just don’t watch TWiT regularly anymore. By accident (TWiT) I learn there’s a new guy who’s hosting ScreenSavers and TNT. How long has Jason not been showing his face on shows? Do unemployed tech bloggers actually move to Petaluma in hopes of getting a part-timer paycheck at TWiT studios?

        Is the FMCP gone yet? Do they still do the Enterprise show?

      This sad, pathetic troll site is still here? Wow.

      Criticizing low-level employees at an irrelevant podcast company is a great use of time.

      Jesus Fucking H Christ. What a bunch of complete losers.

      Milton (or is it @RealDonaldTrump),

      Thanks for stopping by and the insightful comment. So glad you and your daughter are together again.

    1. The first thirty minutes was shit with a 15 minute story about how Leo and Steve feel in love and 15 minutes talking about how great last pass is even though they have had multiple security issues lately.

      What’s the deal with last pass and Steve? He really have a hard on for last pass.

      The rest of the show wasn’t literal shit, but I don’t remember a single story. Probably some rehashing of the trusty ol’ TLS rambling.

      I look forward to next tech snap.

  4. The only reason Jason has stuck around is because he has a kid. If he were single or just he and his wife he would’ve been gone a long time ago.

    Leo cannot attract top talent to 1, Petaluma and 2, to a podcast network made up of predominantly geriatric hosts.

    TWiT had a really good thing going at peak Brick House Era. Sarah, Tom, Iyaz, Shwood, hell, they even got Veronica Belmont to buy in! Now it’s just a bunch of old farts playing out the string.

    We went from Leo’s attic to the cottage to the brick house and now to this strip mall dump. I wonder what’ll be next? IT’s not going to be pretty.

        Makes you wonder…what happened?

        Was there an event we can think of?Something that changed the course?

        His handling of Tom Merritt’s move to LA. I get being angry. He just built a $1m studio and your lead host says he’s going to Skype in for every show? Hit the bricks!

        The problem is Tom was the heir apparent. He was the best host on the network. He brought the best out of Iyaz, Sarah and Jason. He brought in guests like Veronica Belmont, Shwood and Scott Johnson that added new and interesting dynamics to the shows.

        Once he left, the vibrancy of the network went with him. Again, it’s geriatrics. Say what you will about Leo now, but he used to be a great host. He gets by only on knowledge now, as he clearly doesn’t prepare for any shows.

        I get the impression he wants out, or at least wants to scale back his role. Tom could’ve allowed him to do that because he can carry the flagship shows. Take Leo away now and the network implodes.

        I trace the downfall back to that. I’m curious what others think.

        1. Shwood and the Mormon cartoonist are hardly missed.

          The blame can probably be put squarely on Lisa, her lack of experience and the fact that the bosses were fucking in secret. It just took a while for pieces to start falling off the SS TWiT but my guess is that Leo’s professional and personal life were both ruined as soon as he met Lisa.

    1. Jesus H. Christ, if you hate it here so much, why do you keep returning? Are you that lonely for companionship?

  5. This woman was toast after that comical train wreck of an interview w/blitzed Sarah and all those people- who had *NO* god damn fucking clue who Laporte was, at a tech conference…

  6. Still staggering around punch drunk after JH hosted SN, I blundered into WW being hosted by Megan “Mom” Morrone. We now have a infinite number of monkeys writing infinite Happy Days scripts with infinite AHFs jumping infinite sharks.

    And if Oath Doge is puzzled by SG love of LastPass, what about Steena of Yubico with Yubikey?

    I’d like to see Twit added to “The Blacklist” where Red puts the FBI onto Leo (The Netcaster #33), Jeff Jarvis (The Jibbering Plonker #72) and Elaine Rivera (Matron Giggle Pop #12*).

    *for dragging Tom to LA, destroying every interesting episode of AAA & doing it all for a glittering YouTube career which has now been dumped for some other endeavour of towering irrelevance

    1. You mean Eileen Rivera, but YouTube didn’t pan out? I see she is at Fandango and still living in LA. Hrmph! Yes, Tom was our final hope.

      Sounds like I quit SN and WW just in time to miss the guest hosts. It’s hard to imagine but the current guest hosts (including the FMCP if he’s still around) are worse than Leo’s inattentive and argumentative presence.

        I definitely think there’s something to the Leo/Lisa dynamic that turns people off. If Leo is giving you schtick, you can’t turn to anyone in the back office because they all report to Lisa, who is his wife.

        It’s funny, whenever talent is about to get on par with Leo: Erik Lanigan, Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, he pushes them away. He wants to scale back and vacation more, yet he wants to be the sole face of the network. It’s sad, really.

        1. I forgot to add: Tom is back on TWiT, along with Calacanis and others that were “blacklisted” because the network is clearly in trouble. It’s only a matter of time before Dvorak pops back in.

            Tom was on TWiT a few weeks ago. He has been on about once a quarter over the last 2 years. He even hosts when Leo is out of town.

            They’re desperate.

        Jibbering? Sober up next time if you post… this is shit even for one of my cookie cutter troll fans.

        You killed TWIG. You accepted Leo’s flattery of “public intellectual” (are you or aren’t you?) You dined out on the faux outrage of some minor issue with Verizon well past the used by date. You bored everyone witless banging on about the politics of German privacy laws. Why didn’t you run your own podcast elsewhere for anyone interested in your hobby horses? Did you seek independent assessment of you performance on the show and how effective a contribution you were making? Did you spend any time taking a larger view of the TWIT network and its audience and consider where you were taking TWIG? If you were an occasional guest on TWIG and TWIT that could have worked well. But that’s not what happened. You killed TWIG.

  7. Liar LaWhore just read a disclaimer on TWiT that stated that shows may not start on time, and he said he added it because he was tired of people complaining that he wasn’t starting on time!

    And when did he add it? Just recently, after years of starting late because he’s a lazy fat fuck.

    Only a goddamn narcissist would claim that they don’t start on time due to “technology” rather than him being late and an inconsiderate fucktard.

    Hey dipshit: maybe if you could keep people longer than a year everyone would be good enough at their jobs that you could start on time virtually EVERY time. Asshole.

    1. Before that he was once again ‘slamming’ the great Dvorak.

      But it’s bound to be an amazing episode. Luminaries of the week are Sylvether the Cath, Jerry Seinfeld’s wall-mounted bicycle and that Gamergate tranny. They don’t need JCD, that nut.

  8. That big fat piece of whale shit has to slate Dvorak at least 2x a week. As if I was turned off by that lousy panel on TWiT, then he has the nerve to take a shot at JCD as the show closes? (Chad Johnson leaving was one of the biggest losses we rarely mention. He booked great guests.)

    Get over it, Leo. JCD is a legend. You’re an old horndog who drove his daughter insane because he fucked the boss.

    1. True Dat wasn’t Abby going to a great school in the east coast until she started abusing weed along the same timeline when Leo was bedding Lisa while still married to Jennifer? Also if anyone checks out the Shoe Box move special you hear Lisa manically saying that the east-side of the the train tracks is the poor-side of Petaluma when Leo cuts her off and refers to a random PokeStop in area – Leo was like, “u kno we live here and shit”. LOL, good pick Leo. How’s is Art is Anal doing?
