While an official press release is yet to come, Leo has finally given up on holding the secret back and let the beans spill in the last 5 minutes of his “Tech Guy on KFI” radio show this week and let it be known that, as suspected (and leaked on the G4 message boards) that Call for Help will begin airing on G4 Television starting August 29th at 11AM EST.
Set your Tivos and PVRs folks, this is great news! Many people had suspected it all along, but I’ve been duped by people with random internet posts too often before to fall for this one without it coming straight from the horse’s mouth. And while the attention is ramping up over this announcement, keep in mind that an official press release is still to come, so keep an eye out for that.
In the meantime, this is great news, and whether you like or hate G4, it’s definitely cause to celebrate!
UPDATE :: Looks like Leo’s made the official announcement. It’s kind of sad that G4 won’t see fit to make an announcement of their own (I’m more than skeptical of G4’s motives with regard to the silent inclusion of Call for Help to their lineup, their failure to post a press release, and their choice of timeslot-it rings setup for failure to me) but Leo knows the story and knows that anyone who would be watching would be checking on the official word from him, and he’s got it.
