Veronica Belmont Says Farewell to Tekzilla and Revision3

November 12th, 2013 at 10:42 by Patrick Norton in Announcements, Shows

It’s an exciting time for the Tekzilla production team –we’ve just launched Tekzilla Bites, HD Nation lives on after TechFeed, and we have two new shows debuting in the next month– but not all our news is full of awesome. After six years and hundreds of shows, our partner in tech mayhem, Veronica Belmont, is moving on. We’ll let her tell you more below.

She’ll be greatly missed.

Joining Tekzilla back in 2008 was a total no-brainer for me. I wanted to work in the web video world with people who were passionate about technology, doing something different, and knew how to have fun. In the almost six(!) years since then, Tekzilla — and the people who make it — have changed my life and career forever.

I’ve written several (very sappy) versions of this post, but I want to keep it short and sweet: Tekzilla is continuing to evolve in new and exciting ways, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to see how I can do the same.

It’s silly to say that Roger, Patrick, Robert, and the rest of the crew have become “like” family to me, because they really are. The entire production team has seen me at my best — and worst, I’m sure — and I’m incredibly grateful for everything they’ve taught me over the years.

So, what’s next? Well, I don’t know quite yet. I’m about to start production of Season 2 of the Sword & Laser YouTube show and complete work on our short story anthology, but beyond that I’m still deciding where I want to take the next step in my career. As always, there are irons (and broadswords) in the fire!

I just want to say thank you to Revision3 for so many great years and opportunities, and give a HUGE thanks to the thousands of fans and viewers of the show that have constantly kept us energized (and on our toes!) these past six years. We have the smartest viewers on the planet, and I look forward to meeting more of you both online and off. We’ll always have CES!

In the meantime, you can keep up with me as always on Twitter, or over on my blog, and I’m looking forward to seeing you at the next stop!

/hug
Veronica Belmont

    All my fav tech gals, making life changes. First with Morgan Webb (webbeat), Natalie DelConte (loaded), then Pelpina Trip (webbeat), now Veronica Belmont (Tekzilla). Who’s next…Cali Lewis (geekbeat)? Hope to see you back soon in the tech arena Veronica! You will be missed.

    Going to miss you on Tekzilla so much! I have been seeing you since the old CNET area. Sorry you will be leaving and hope you have the best future.

    @only1bigg:disqus Let me count the ways why you don’t ask a woman this question… oh wait, there’s only one: it’s none of your business. It will never be your business. I should hope you would know that given your handle.

    Good luck for you Veronica
