TAPS co-founder Grant Wilson has announced that he will be leaving Ghost Hunters in May this year.

Seattle Pi said:

Wilson's announcement on Wednesday's episode delivered 2. 2 million viewers - the show's biggest audience in 15 months, according to Entertainment Weekly.

IMO the show has run its course. I'd guess Grant is simply jumping ship before the inevitable sinking.

Or he wants to concentrate on other aspects in his personal life.

People speculated the show would not last any longer due to the amount of controversy surrounding the show and its investigators. However; IMO no thanks to the controversy it has gotten more people to watch it. Who's to say he is leaving permanently? He could always say; I changed my mind or did what I had to do and come back. Besides, they'll find another excuse to keep the show going by putting together another find the next ghost hunter. BTW... not a fan of the show at all if you could tell! :)

I have enjoyed this show since the beginning.  It is a lot of fun to watch and speculate about the sounds and sightings.  I like Grant and wish him the best.  I will continue to watch Ghost Hunters and still enjoy the show.

I love this show, but really sorry Grant is leaving he was my favorite.

I think Steve should replace him, until Grant returns :)

As I understand it from the TAPS 18 forum, Grant is still a member of TAPS,The Atlantic Paranormal Society he founded with Jason.It's just he won't be on the show any more. I wouldn't rule out maybe him showing up for something special like a Halloween episode maybe in the future,it's possible. It may be that this was causing family problems,a nd he decided that it wasn't worth all the wear and tear on his family.

This will probably be Ghost Hunters " Jump the Shark " moment.

All down-hill from here.

( Watch, they'll probably fill the void with celebrity guest investigators )

It's mildly entertaining so I don't make it a point to watch it. I do like seeing the historic buildings.

They once showed some hangers flying towards them from offcamera... which were TOTALLY NOT thrown by the sound dude who is never acknowledged as existing...The show pretty much sucks.

When a dog was brought in to find paranormal activity I realized they were no longer trying to find any evidence they simply wanted to entertain. It was severely disheartening. Grant was the my favorite. But yeah I think 2008 or 2009 was the last time I enjoyed the show. Best wishes to grant. He seems like a real good hearted person. Farewell grant. Jason I never trusted you. Farewell GH.
