About the Chris Pirillo Show

In 1996, Chris Pirillo launched Lockergnome, intent on delivering personality-infused tech answers to his audience. In 1998, he authored the authoritative book on e-mail publishing - further establishing himself as a thought leader. WHO AM 1040, a popular Midwestern talk radio presence, invited him to start hosting a weekly "tech show" broadcast in early 2000. His presence was ultimately noticed by both talent and executive producers at the television network, TechTV. He moved from the middle of Iowa to San Francisco in 2001, and began hosting "Call for Help" - driving a live, interactive program that focused on solving common technology frustrations. As a monthly columnist for CPU Magazine, Chris continues to keep readers informed and entertained as only he can do. For more information, visit
