Sessler Leaves G4, Departure "Not On Amicable Terms"
Love him, hate him, indifferent; however you feel, it's still the end of an era.
According to Kotaku, gaming personality and television host Adam Sessler has left G4. He was the host of the well-known show X-Play, which has aired in various forms since 1998; he teamed up with Morgan Webb for the latter part of his run. Apparently, he has left due to a "contractual dispute" and unfortunately, the split was not amicable.
Said a representative for Sessler:
"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."
...we can't decide if that last part is meant to be a joke. Sessler went on Twitter to make a brief parting statement of his own:
"Thank you to everyone with your exceedingly kind wishes and thoughts. I think I'll finally take a nap..."
Okay, so who wants the hosting gig? Who's up for it?
