Martin gets ripped, by the RIPTIDE!
Martin Sargent, of TechTV and Infected infamy was canned late October from his post at Revision3. Jim Louderback, CEO or Revision3, stated in a blog post that:
We’ve had a number of great successes here at Revision3, including Diggnation, Tekzilla and The Totally Rad Show. But not everything pans out. Just as in the past, when we ended shows that just weren’t building audiences or driving revenue, we had to make changes. As you may have heard, today we had to make some tough staffing decisions as we ended the run of a few of our shows.
For our long-running Photoshop show Pixel Perfect, it’s the end of a show that’s done over a hundred episodes, and delivered essentially a graduate level course in graphic design and technique. For PopSiren and Internet Superstar, it’s the end of 2 shows that had great promise, but never really found their audience.
Internet Superstar was the Sarge's latest show, after the end of Infected and Web Drifter.
His drunken humor and fake Olive Garden commercials will be greatly missed. I leave you with one of his most entertaining and informative episodes of Infected, number 27, the pornography special.
