G4 Fires Entire Staff of TechTV

The Laporte Report: Comcast Fires TechTV Staff

This is horrible -- after reading Leo Laporte's blog, I've just learned that G4 has fired the entire staff of TechTV. This is a dumb move I think -- G4 purchased the rights to TechTV to gain the viewership that's been following TechTV. The viewers watch TechTV because of the TV personalities that's been on the various programs.

Now, they've fired the staff and possibly the popular TechTV personalities -- which is a stupid move -- because the viewers you're hoping to gain with the purchase of TechTV will most likely not watch the shows cause the personalities won't be there.

I've started a online petition that I'm planning on faxing to Comcast and G4 at the petition conclusion, which is June 17.
