Kevin Pereira announced via his personal blog that he is leaving G4’s Attack of the Show at the end of the month.
Some of you may have already heard the news. I am leaving Attack of the Show. I have been with G4 for the past ten years, and have clawed my way up the corporate ladder from production assistant to executive-producer and host…. It has been a wild, unpredictable, incredible journey filled with occasional struggles and countless once-in-a-lifetime opportunities…In due time (May 31st to be precise), I’ll face that reality.
Pereira is now the second G4 personality to be leaving the network, as Adam Sessler, who hosted X-Play, recently quit due to a contract dispute.
On his blog, Pereira says he is working on some new projects, which includes a new show that will air on SyFy, including other digital content.
In response to those who say that Attack of the Show is dea, Pereira said,
Change is often met with fear and uncertainty, sometimes with sadness or anger; and occasionally that negativity manifests itself into horrific visions of a falling sky. Yet each time Attack has been “over”, it has re-invented itself and ultimately persevered. While I’d love to take full credit for that, I can’t in good conscious…From our interns, producers and writers to our entire studio crew, everybody at Attack bleeds passionately to inform and entertain on a daily basis. That will not change…I have no doubt they will continue to create amazing things, and further cement the fear that this moment is my “Dunkleman”. No offense, Brian.
