Brian Tong, the former co-host of StirTV and Nightshift, has a new gig as a CNET TV show host. (Fellow co-host of StirTV Jeannie Mai recently aired Dude, Where’s Your Style? on the Style network) CNET, where people go to discover the latest in tech and consumer electronics, and a property of CBS Interactive, announced the official release of “The Apple Byte”, a new online show devoted to consumers passionate about all things Apple. NVIDIA is the exclusive sponsor for this weekly show, hosted by CNET editor Brian Tong, an ex-Apple employee. The show will feature the latest news, how-to tips, and insights on what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to the company and its products.
Every Friday at 4:00 PM PST, Brian Tong, who also hosts CNET’s Prizefight, will dish out quick tips to consumers on how to work with their favorite Apple product – including an iPod, iPhone, or Mac. The show will feature an “App of the Week” segment which showcases new applications for Apple products, interviews with CNET editors, and a unique perspective on the latest happenings in the world of Apple. Tong offers a unique perspective as both an outsider and insider – previously he had worked at the company.
“Whether you love or hate Apple, this is a show for everyone,” said Brian Tong. “There’s no doubt that the company is known for generating huge buzz. We’ll explore the hype and report on everything that’s on Apple’s radar.”
