The time has come for me to step down as CEO of Linus Media Group (and everything else under the umbrella). Let me tell you what that looks like: what’s changing, what’s not, and who is taking my place…

    I can only imagine what it’s like to run such a big organisation… you did amazing! Looking forward to the future of the channels.

    This takes a lot of humility and self-awareness. Excited to see the future of LTT!!

  3. Moose says:

    We love you Linus ❤ you the goat!

  4. What I Do says:

    I’m a dad of a tech kid. I wasn’t into tech until my son was. He turned me on to your channel and a few others. Your content has literally been a key for this athlete dad to know and relate to his super tech kid. And still, this video is yet another point of conversion where I can discuss the character of integrity with him. LTT is more than a tech channel.

    This move takes courage, self awareness, and trust. We appreciate you all the more, Linus! You’re an inspiration as a young business leader.

  6. Tigerslug says:

    I had a massive lump in my throat watching this, being a subscriber of the channel since the days at the house, I care about the direction of the channel, the quality of content produced and the employees. I thought this was the end briefly. Ultimately, I’m happy that you are finding space to be more yourself and work towards putting your energy into creating a space that you feel personally happy within the company. To have the oversight to see that this is something you need for yourself and Yvonne is incredible, and you should be proud of yourself. Live your best life Linus, and I hope this decision allows you to be more involved at LMG in a way that helps you to feel revitalised and gives you more capacity to give more to the things you love in life. You have been a goliath in this space and I don’t doubt you will continue to be, with the capacity to have a fresh and clearer perspective. Thank you for all the entertainment and knowledge you have provided, and I’m ecstatic to hear you are taking the steps to make your life an environment you feel comfortable in. I’m looking forward to seeing you more on screen!

    so much respect for what you and your team have built over the years!

  8. PaganLinuxGeek says:

    I love that your’re reaching out and tap your previous manager to fill the role. Shows respect and a smart use of known and proven talent. You’re an inspiration, man.

  9. Rory Kiefer says:

    This is smart, Linus. Being a CEO takes a type, and not being that type isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it takes losing some of yourself and some of your morality to be the kind of CEO we read glory stories about. You can still be super happy not being the CEO of this cool thing you helped create. All the best in the future. Looking forward to what’s next from you and your organization.

  10. Gary Serrano Jr says:

    Kudos to you Linus for being honest and open with yourself, you friends, your family, and your fans. It’s not the easiest thing to admit you need help and that you’re just tired. I have all of the respect in the world for you for doing this video! Thanks for all that you have done for this community!
