Megan Morrone (born Megan Wells Olesky on March 15, 1973)[1] is an American writer and former television personality. She is best known for her role on the technology-related television show The Screen Savers on TechTV – a cable and satellite channel which has since been taken over by G4. Reportedly, Morrone quit The Screen Savers to raise a family and write for one of Microsoft's consumer websites. Her last day on The Screen Savers was October 3, 2003, although she occasionally returned for guest appearances. She now runs the Jumping Monkeys website devoted to her three children and to child-raising issues and Jumping Monkeys podcast with Leo Laporte devoted to parenting. She announced in February 2009 that the podcast, at one point on hiatus, would not be returning.[2]

Morrone earned a BA from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.[3] She currently lives in Northern California with her husband, Marco, and their three children, Annabella, Milo, and Huck.[3]

Morrone agreed to fill in for Amber MacArthur on the TWiT podcast Inside the Net during MacArthur's four-week vacation in September 2006.[4]

On January 7th, 2015, announced that Morrone will resume hosting shows on the network.[5] Her first shows back are: "...Tech News 2Night" and "iFive for the iPhone."
