Shawn King, founder and host of The Mac Show, the longtime radio show about everything Mac, has resigned. Mac Show productions, the group behind the show, issued a statement indicating King’s resignation was effective immediately.
According to the statement from Mac Show Productions, King resigned due to “philosophical differences.”
Executive Producer Mark Stevens, will assume hosting duties until a new host is found.
“It’s always disappointing when something like this happens,” said Stevens. “When the same market conditions affecting everyone in the tech sector forced a re-focusing of our product, Mr. King chose not to agree with our plans for the future and this is the unfortunate outcome. Since we’ve had such good initial response to our new direction, we feel strongly that we need to continue, and hope the audience will stay tuned as we enter this new era of the show.”
The Mac Show is set to launch a new format on January 30, 2002.
