Dan Huard: Life as a TechTV/G4 Employee

Dan Huard, who just launched his successful site a few weeks ago and is looking to be a tech writer and columnist in his own regard (best of luck Dan, we’ll keep an eye on ya) finally gets to sitting down and answering the questions that everyone’s been plaguing him with: “What was it like at G4/TechTV?” From top to bottom, Dan paints us a portrait of doing a job he loves and enjoyed getting up in the morning for, and the gradual slide and decline from the TechTV that we all knew and loved to the tripe that sits on that same channel now. He explains what was really happening behind the scenes, and to be honest, between this and Wil Wheaton’s escapades below, I’m impressed that the G4 management would be so duplicitous in decieving their viewers and audiences-tricks like using G4 staff, friends, and family only signal a network that’s not big enough to fit the britches they wish they had, and yet refuses to eat their vegetables, if you catch my drift. If not, just read: Dan’s an excellent writer.

Hello, What a beautiful and awesome site. I adore what you’ve done with your setup and graphics. Thanks you so much.

I hate the fact that G4 has changed what was the best TV format ever. I watched it since 1997 and was the main channel my TV’s were ever on. My favorite shows were ‘Call For Help’, and ‘The Screen Savers’. I sad that Leo and Patrick are no longer on here.

I know a lot of people who stopped watching after all the changes. Games are cool, but the inside tech of it all is where its at.

I hope that one day, you…or someone restores that kind of format to TV. You guys really ruled.
