Tom launched Daily Tech News Show, a placeholder name that stuck, in 2014 with the support of Patreon subscribers who knew him from Tech News Today. “People didn’t want the TWiT show to end,” he says.

In its first decade, Daily Tech News Show’s subscribers have continually supported the show’s fundraising goals, most notably with the addition of co-host Sarah Lane in 2017, who had previously hosted programming with Tom at TechTV and TWiT.

Sarah Lane is a media creator with 25 years of experience producing content for television and online platforms. She was the first co-host of G4’s daily live variety hour Attack of the Show! and has hosted and produced programming for TechTV, Revision 3, Current Tech, TWiT and TechCrunch. At TWiT, Sarah produced, hosted, and edited various live shows across the network, including iPad Today, Tech News Tonight, iFive for the iPhone, and The Social Hour. She joined TechCrunch in 2015 as its first executive producer of video and hosted TechCrunch’s daily video show Crunch Report. She managed buildouts for new VOD platforms at Lionsgate and before joining Daily Tech News Show in 2017.

Since premiering on January 2, 2014, Daily Tech News Show has covered the most important tech news of the day with regular expert contributors including Dr. Nicole Ackermans (functional morphology and neuroscience), Nica Montford (artificial intelligence and machine learning), Shannon Morse (security and privacy), Patrick Norton (home theater) and Tim Stevens (tech and automotive). The show broadcast live from the Consumer Electronics Show floor from 2018 to 2020 and has covered major tech events and trends including Apple and Samsung product launches, Worldwide Developers Conference, the rise and possible fall of cryptocurrency, and advancements in robotics and artificial intelligence.

As Daily Tech News Show celebrates ten years in podcasting, hosts Tom Merritt and Sarah Lane look forward to exploring new technology trends, returning to live events, and arranging a meetup with their fans. Support from the show’s community remains strong, Sarah says. “People want to hang out with people they like and learn something.”
