Kevin Pereira And Adam Sessler Leaving G4
There’s only one channel you turn to for video game news and reviews, and that is G4, specifically X-Play and Attack Of The Show. Now the two most important faces of the two most important technology shows are parting ways.
Adam Sessler, who has already departed due to contractual disputes, has been involved with G4 since its old format ZDTV and “Gamespot TV” in 1998. He was also the editor-in-chief of gaming content.
News broke that Kevin Pereira would be leaving Attack Of The Show on Tuesday, May 9. He began working for the network as an off-screen production assistant in 2002 who received airtime on Attack by 2006.
Pereria has seen the entry and departure of Sarah Lane and Olivia Munn (who went on to write a book and star in the NBC sitcom Perfect Couples). Current co-host Candace Bailey joined in 2011 and will presumedly continue after he leaves on May 31.
I have been watching both shows for several years now and will miss Kevin Pereira especially. He is a great talent with excellent (slightly self-deprecating) comedic timing and interviewing skills.
The lack of Sessler’s in-depth reviews, appearances on The Golden Mullet Awards, and Game Break will also leave a hole in my chest.
Pereira took to his blog, writing that he intents to sharpen his producing skills. He partnered with Super Creative which has “a few television shows in the works” including ono on SyFy.He took to Twitter to write “Still reeling over reactions to my departure from @aots. I’m touched by the support and honored by everyone’s appreciation. Thank you.” Adam also responded in April, Tweeting “Thank you to everyone with your exceedingly kind wishes and thoughts. I think I’ll finally take a nap…”
