Leo Laporte is leaving TechTV. Actually he’s being pushed out.
“management and I had come to a very satisfactory agreement about a new work schedule and salary, but at the last minute TechTV’s outgoing owner, Vulcan Ventures, insisted that I sign away all claims to shares they had given me some years ago. I was unwilling to do so, and they held my job as hostage.”
He’s a cool guy who has taught tons of clueless newbies about computers, so it’s a little sad to see him leave.
