‘Ghost Hunters’ Investigator Grant Wilson Quits SyFy Show

When there’s something weird in your neighborhood, who are you going to call? Not Grant Wilson. The lead “Ghost Hunters” investigator announced today that he will be leaving the SyFy “documentary” series.

ScreenCrave report that Grant Wilson has been the lead investigator on “Ghost Hunters” for the last eight years. Wilson said that he was leaving the show to focus more on his personal life.

On the most recent episode of “Ghost Hunters,” Wilson said:

“It is with mixed emotion that I am announcing my departure from the cast of Ghost Hunters. While paranormal investigating has always been and will remain a passion for me, after enjoying nearly eight successful seasons on television, I have made the decision to leave the series in order to focus on other aspects of my personal life… I will deeply miss working with [co-investigator] Jason [Hawes] and the rest of the dedicated investigators and crew that have become like family, and I wish them all the best as they continue to follow their passion and realize the vision of TAPS.”

“Ghost Hunters” is currently the longest running show on the SyFy channel and will continue without Grant Wilson.

Co-Investigator Hawes said:

“I will miss working with Grant on a daily basis, and am indebted to the level of dedication and expertise he has brought to our field. I can’t imagine having a better partner through it all… both on the show and off…. While I fully support his decision to move on from the series, this longtime friendship — as well as our business partnership — will continue off-camera for years to come.”
