All Co-Hosts Erased from The New Screen Savers Intro

Update: TWiT paid for a billboard in Times Square to announce the news.

After the untimely demise of the world’s best tech journalist, Mike Elgan, we wondered what would happen to the intro for The New Screen Savers.

Leo and Lisa star in the sequel.

It appears the answer is that the demon succubus had an editor erase all of the hosts from the intro, just like all the faces have been removed from the TWiT show thumbnails where hosts have changed. Lisa and Leo can’t afford to pay to update artwork when there are $22k+ cruises to take.

This isn’t the first time they’ve played The Eraser.

The last episode with the old hosts in the intro was December 5, 2015. Mike Elgan’s employment was terminated after his last Tech News Today on December 7, 2015. The very next episode of The New Screen Savers, airing on December 12, 2015, featured the very clumsily edited — probably by poor Anthony — new intro featuring only Uncle Leo.
