Bad news for regular viewers of the Syfy channel (there are viewers of Syfy, right?  Those exist?), as it was announced on Wednesday night that Grant Wilson, co-lead investigator of Syfy’s “documentary” series Ghost Hunters, will be departing the show.

After eight years with the show, Wilson will no longer be a paranormal investigator TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society).  Whether or not this has to do with back strain due to carrying heavy proton packs, or the travails of swimming in thick, viscous pink slime beneath the streets of New York City in an effort to prevent the rebirth of a seventeenth century Carpathian tyrant, it is not known.

Wilson announced after the most recent episode of Ghost Hunters that he has “decision to leave the series in order to focus on other aspects of my personal life” and that he 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.”

After eight years, Ghost Hunters has become both Syfy’s longest running series, as well as their flagship program.
