Leo Laporte Losing ‘The Tech Guy’ Early Next Year?

Update 2: Leo is denying he’s cancelled. It’s still not on the calendar past February 24. #twitlive chat below, from before AmenFatherBob was muted, then kicked and banned.

<AmenFatherBob> hey Leo... is it true TTG has not been renewed next year? It's not on the twit calendar after Feb. 18, 2018
<~Leo> ha ha ha AmenFatherBob - nice try troll
<~Leo> just to reassure you the Tech Guy was renewed early and will be on the air at least througn 2018
<~Leo> although judging from Premiere's interest there is no reason to think the show won't continue as long as I can still do it.
<~Leo> yeah the contrace is Dec-Dec but they contacted us in July to make sure I wanted to continue
<~Leo> the troll is really desparate for material apparently

Update 1: FMCP is transitioning away in January and leaving TWiT entirely in September.

Thanks to Bob in the comments for pointing it out.

Leo Laporte’s feelings toward his staff and viewers, brought to you Epson’s new EcoTank printer and Carbonite. You gotta back it up to get it back.

Hurricane Lisa Laporte made landfall earlier this month, but it appears further devastation is poised to strike the Eastside Shoebox Studios in early 2018.

Leo Laporte’s golden goose and retirement planThe Tech Guy — appears to be ending its run under Leo Laporte.

Is it because iHeart is going out of business? Is it because nobody except grannies, truckers, and Elliot call into The Tech Guy?

Maybe they fired him because he won’t even show up on time for the one job where someone else pays him. Or perhaps it was that time he showed his dick?

Either way, after February 24, The Tech Guy won’t be on TWiT, according to the TWiT calendar.

Can you see the difference? It’s about $300,000 — roughly 13 Leo-sized cruises.

The show, which was first exclusively broadcast on KFI AM 640 in Los Angeles, California, was picked up for syndication by Premiere Networks (then Premiere Radio Networks) in February 2007.


It appears Februrary is his contract non-renewal month. Will the sword of Damacles finally fall at the same time as the Apple adpocalypse?

However, in case this goes into negotiations, let’s help liberate Leo Laporte from iHeart Radio’s lineup. Tell iHeart why Leo Laporte is such a terrible on-air personality. Examples:

  1. Leo Laporte’s knowledge is super-dated.
  2. He relies heavily on the chatroom googling the answers for him.
  3. He misrepresents the recorded tease every single week.
  4. He constantly makes fun of his fans, the same people who save him every week by answering his caller’s questions.
  5. He’s a straight up racist, pervert, sexist and asshole.

Feel free to mention liking Rich Demuro filling in for Leo on a few weekends, if you enjoyed him more.

Thanks to a commenter who pointed this out to us. We have moved the discussion that ensued in the prior post’s comments to this post to keep the discussions relevant.

Leo Laporte Can’t Even Show Up to Work On Time

I'm late for a very important date.
I’m late for a very important date.
Leo Laporte only has one job where he’s not the boss, and he can’t bother to show up on time.

Watch the video below to watch everyone freak out when he doesn’t show up for The Tech Guy and it seems like Nathan starts a re-run (#Soup says the same thing at the beginning of every show so it’s hard to tell if it’s a re-run or feedback).
