Career[edit]

Morrone was on-air talent, a producer, and a web producer for Tech TV, appearing on technology-related television show The Screen Savers until 2003.

Following the 2004 merger of G4 and TechTV, Screen Savers host Leo Laporte created a podcast and video network called TWiT.tv. Morrone guest co-hosted Inside the Net in 2006.[3] From 2007 to 2008, Morrone co-hosted the Jumping Monkeys: Parenting in the Digital Age program with Laporte.

She returned to TWiT in 2015,[4] having guest co-hosted Inside the Net in 2006.[3] hosting the final year of both iFive for the iPhone and Tech News 2Night, co-hosting iOS Today with Leo Laporte (2015 on), and co-hosting a relaunched Tech News Today with Jason Howell, starting in 2016.
