popular productions; Call for Help, which was a live call in show for fans seeking technology assistance and The Screen Savers, a television show centered around computers, new technologies, and their adaptations in the world. He was also an on-air talent at times as well as an occasional fill-in host on Call for Help. Chang remained in this capacity until the spring of 2004.
On March 25, 2004, Comcast's G4 gaming channel announced a merger with TechTV. This move became hugely controversial among loyal fans of TechTV. Around May 6, G4 announced the termination of 250 employees from the San Francisco office by July 10, 2004, allowing approximately 80 to 100 employees to transition to G4's main office in Los Angeles, California if they agreed to relocate there. Chang was terminated and did not make the move to Los Angeles.
In late 2004, an early pre-alpha version of ScopeTech, a technology opinion website founded by Dan Huard with Chang and Robert Padbury, was created. Chang no longer contributes to ScopeTech.
Chang left the gaming website GameSpot in late 2005 to go work for DL.TV, which covers a wide range of technology related topics and is streamed live every Thursday (it was streamed live twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays until episode 189). After serving as a camera operator and frequent guest host, he succeeded Patrick Norton as producer and host for DL.TV.
From March 2006 to October 2006, Roger appeared on the weekly technology podcast from Ziff Davis media called Whats New Now hosted by Jim Louderback.
Chang announced in December 2007 that he would be leaving DL.TV to join Revision3 in January 2008.
Chang also frequently appears as a panelist on This Week in Tech. It was on this show that he explained he was leaving DL.TV to join Patrick Norton and Jim Louderback over at Revision3.
At Revision3, Chang has joined Tekzilla and Systm vidcasts as the senior producer (and probable feature host).
