My radio show is changing channels on XM starting this weekend. Look for The Tech Guy on America’s Talk – XM Channel 158.
The show airs live Saturday and Sunday from 2-5p Eastern and is repeated weekends from 8-11p Eastern and Wednesdays from 4-7PM Eastern. Please tune in and call in at 88-88-ASK LEO!
More affiliates joining the Tech Guy network: Palm Springs (KNWZ-AM 970, KNWH-AM 1250, KNWQ-AM 1140) will be airing the show live on Sundays starting in Mid-November, and San Diego (KOGO-AM 600) will start airing the Sunday show from 12p-3p at the same time.
The radio show is doing quite well. Not only did we sell out all advertising in 2007, we’ve consistently added new markets thanks to Kurt Kretzschmar and his great team at Premiere radio networks.
With the addition of the following stations we’ll be in 35 markets and on XM satellite.

Thanks to the general managers and program directors at these stations for picking up The Tech Guy!
Some of the TWiT hosts will have short segments on the show. The plan is to have one three minute segment each hour at around 23 minutes past the hour. This week Steve Gibson and Paul Thurrott will be on talking security and Vista, respectively. Next week Amber MacArthur, Dick DeBartolo, Merlin Mann, and Ron Rosberg will join the line-up.
Our national launch sponsors will be DSLExtreme and Carbonite (thanks guys!), and thanks to KFI and Premiere Radio Networks for making it happen!
The new chat channel at irc.dslextreme.com is #techguy. The new call-in number is toll-free 1-888-8 ASK LEO (that’s 1â€“888â€“827â€“5536).
