  • Catherine Reitman

    If this bio were left up to Catherine, she would explain in detail how she could consume up to 17 ounces of steak (if it were prepared properly)... but much to her frustration we though we'd elaborate:

    Before Catherine Reitman started making her own name in Hollywood, she spent years studying and perfecting her craft in some of the most prominent theater programs in the nation. She attended Ithaca College's prestigious BFA program and received a minor in film from the University of Southern California. Her studies continued in London as well as the Groundlings School, where she performed in their Sunday Company.

    Catherine has been a regular on hit TV shows including "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "The Real Wedding Crashers" and has guest starred on "How I Met Your Mother," "No Ordinary Family," "Reaper," "Kath and Kim," "Campus Ladies" and Starz "Hollywood Residential."

    Her film credits include "Friends with Benefits," "I Love You Man," "Knocked Up," "Post Grad," and "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" as well as several embarrassing cameos in her father's films when she was a wee girl. What tickles her the most, however, is her weekly movie review show "Breakin' it Down with Catherine Reitman" where she discusses what is in your local box office AND kills her sound guy... passionately.

  • JV

    JV grew up hooked on radio. In high school. he used to skip out on classes just to listen to his favorite radio shows. He was a regular caller and fan of one show in particular that inspired him to take it up as his own life passion.

    JV put together one of the most successful morning radio show's in the Nation called The Dog House. It was rated number 1 for 10 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has also worked in New York and Los Angeles an two very big radio stations.

    JV's show has always been surrounded by controversy, so it led to a couple of back o back terminations. It was during that time that JV discovered a new passion...talking to people through a web cam and a microphone at the same time. JV picked up a home camera, took it to the streets, and then brought what he captured along with his opinions back to his little home studio. The end result was a lot of people calling him and telling him that he should check out Revision3.

    JV is back on the air in San Francisco at Wild 94.9 every morning but he says, "I really have become a fan of Diggnation and the other shows on Revision3...although my show is different, I really hope that the fans DIGG my episodes."

    JV loves making observations about the world that he lives in, hence the name, JV's World. He said "although I'm giving my take on topics, events, and pop culture, I really want to hear what the audience has to say about these topics."

  • Martin Sargent

    Internationally adored farceur Martin Sargent has been delighting audiences for decades. Sargent got his start in media as a plucky young editor at PC/Computing magazine, and it is generally accepted in publishing circles that the periodical shuttered its operations as a direct result of Sargent’s exodus to pursue television projects. At ZDTV, TechTV and G4TV he hosted shows including The Screen Savers and Unscrewed with Martin Sargent. Since then he has done several pilots for such television powerhouses as Comedy Central and USA Network, and hosted shows on the Internet as well as mobile phones. Every show he has ever hosted or been affiliated with has either been cancelled or, in the case of his pilots, not picked up to begin with. He now hosts Web Drifter on Revision3, as well as Internet Superstar, a show he shoots in a shed in his mom’s backyard with absolutely no funding or support. In a nutshell, his once promising career, which reached its zenith in 2002 when he interviewed Vin Diesel, has utterly shat the bed.

    He also has his very own blog -

  • Nixie Pixel

    I grew up gaming on the computer and consoles like the Atari 2600 (Video Olympics FTW!). I'm still a PC purist at heart and have always been a bit (a lot) of a technology geek. I'm being constantly impressed by how far games have come and are going, so far beyond when I used to play Kings Quest for hours, a DOS based adventure where I had to type "GO NORTH AND PICK UP KEY" I am convinced it will only be a matter of time until we're breaking out the virtual reality games.

    I was born of Russian descent and was adopted by a wonderful family, grew up in Massachusetts where I spent most of my childhood years, then moved to Iowa (the middle of nowhere to be exact) as a teen as an effort by my parents to calm the "wild child" in me. After this wild child gamer girl grew up to be a wild gamer chick, I thought I'd try out something different and head out to the coasts of California. I love to travel and just recently spent a month in Europe, exclusively to check out the Love Parade, a 1.5 million strong electronic dance party/rave (oh, watch out for the Space cakes in Amsterdam ;).

    I recently left my job as a master control operator at a television station to pursue my dream of starting my own business. I've done everything. Well, almost everything. Along the way I rediscovered my love for talking about games and for video and music editing, and hope to see that I am accepted as a Suicide Girl, though I'm too much of a nervous nerd to put myself "out there" yet. However, I tend to do things impulsively, so be on the look out for those pictures in the near future. {insert evil laugh here}

  • Sarah Lane

    Sarah Lane is a television and Internet personality as well as an avowed cat fanatic. She is most notable for hosting a number of shows on the network, including Tech News Today, iPad Today and The Social Hour. She was also previously known for hosting TechTV's The Screen Savers, G4's Attack of the Show! and Revision3's popSiren.

    One of Sarah's first jobs was segment producing in San Jose, CA, for a TV show called New Media News. In those years the first internet bubble had not yet burst, and she spent a large chunk of her time interviewing 25-year old CEOs about their Next Big Things. Sarah would like to say that during these interviews she had the incredible foresight to see through all of their fatally flawed business models, but that would be a bit of an embellishment.

    As the Senior Segment Producer for a computer-centric show called "The Screen Savers" at TechTV in San Francisco, Sarah's daily subject matter got her even more hooked on all things geeky. Ok, maybe not all things. But many things. Many things geeky. Anyway, after a couple of years, Sarah moved into an on-camera position, which gave her the ability to share her many things geeky with a very large audience while wearing lipstick and eyeshadow. She often brushed her hair, too.

    In 2004, Sarah migrated south to Los Angeles to work for G4 and was the first female co-host of the network's daily live variety hour "Attack of the Show!" She lived in Santa Monica and ate a lot of Mexican food and occasionally wore hair extensions and false eyelashes on the set. LA was fun.

    In 2006, Sarah took a year off to travel the world. Highlights included Turkish baths, the Trans-Mongolian Express, and loose definitions of toilets in the Indian subcontinent. After a year abroad, she was anxious to get back to her tech roots and join the Internet television revolution.
