G4 announced today that Pereira would be leaving the show after 10 years (6 years co-hosting it) to focus on his new production company, Super Creative, but not before covering E3 2012 first.
After more than a decade on the air, host Kevin Pereira is leaving G4TV's Attack of the Show. Attack will celebrate Pereira’s contribution to G4 with a month-long look back at his most memorable comedy sketches, interviews, and hilarious off-the-cuff moments from the show. The Pereira-palooza will culminate on May 31, his final day on AOTS, before Pereira delivers his final live, on-location coverage for the gaming world's biggest event, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), from June 4-7. In other words: Kevin’s going out large.Pereira says he plans to continue creating television shows, interactive applications and live experiences. “I plan to turn my attention to full-time with my production company Super Creative and live touring nerd-carnival leetUP," Pereira said.
“For the last ten years, G4 has provided me a phenomenal career filled with countless once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and the chance to work with some of the most driven, talented and passionate people in the business,” said Pereira. “I want to thank our viewers for allowing me to inform and entertain them each and every week.”
Pereira started at G4 in 2002 as a lowly production assistant, but leveled-up to co-host of Attack of the Show! by 2006. Along with AOTS, Kevin was a staple of G4's extensive live coverage from the world’s largest nerd-gatherings, including E3 CES and Comic-Con as well as countless trips to exotic locations all over the world for various pop culture related events and happenings.
