The Sess is out.
Adam Sessler, host of G4’s X-Play, has officially parted ways with G4 and the program that he has hosted for over 13 years. Sources have indicated that this move stems from disagreements between Sessler and the network in regards to his contract. Regardless, it can be said by all that this is a sad day for one of gaming’s only dedicated television shows. Today, Sessler’s representative spoke to the issue at hand and assured the madding crowds that the beloved icon of games journalism would remain a stalwart of the industry.
Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam’s last episode as host of G4’s “X-Play” airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV’s “Gamespot TV” in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie “noobz” and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.
Though he may be leaving his stomping grounds behind, it appears that Adam Sessler will remain a player in the industry, a move that, as a lifelong watcher and admirer of Sessler’s work, puts my troubled heart at ease.
