TechCrunch is about to embark on a brand new adventure. We’re coming at you in a way that you’ve never
seen heard before.
World, prepare yourself for TechCrunch Radio!
We’re collaborating with the fine folks at Sirius XM to connect with our readers in a brand new way. John Biggs and I will host the show, and each week, we’ll dedicate a good portion of our show to a TechCrunch pitch-off, where startups can call in and pitch their product over the radio to John, myself, and a guest judge. Winners will grab tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt.
We’ll be launching the show on Tuesday, September 9, live from the Disrupt SF Startup Alley. For the first half of the show, we’ll be discussing the launch of the new iPhone, which is going down just hours before. Then, we’ll pluck a few startups from the Alley and let them pitch their wares.
TechCrunch Radio will air every Tuesday evening at 3pm PT/6pm ET for six weeks. If it’s a success (and it will be), we’ll keep at it until we’re as big as Howard Stern.
If you’re a fan of Fly Or Die, our TC podcasts, or our regional TC Meetups, chances are you’re going to love this show. Plus, we’ll be able to chat out the news and the latest issues outside of the hellish depths of our comments system. John and I are excited and honored to be connecting with you guys this way, and we hope you’re excited, too.
The 6-week series will debut on Tuesday, September 9, at 6:00 pm ET live from the TechCrunch technology conference. Each week, “TechCrunch Radio” will air Tuesdays at 6:00 pm ET with a replay at 6:00 pm PT, drive time for both coasts, on Indie, channel 102, and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. Subscribers will also be able to listen via SiriusXM On Demand through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices and online at siriusxm.com. You can get a free trial of the service here.
