As of 2017, the best way to contact the Ghost Hunters team is through their TAPS website (that site’s contact form wasn’t working the last time I looked, but you can email [email protected] ) or Facebook. You’ll also find Jason on Beyond Reality.
Here’s my original article about contacting Ghost Hunters. It includes other ways to reach the cast, SyFy, and information about joining a similar TV show.
It’s easy to contact Ghost Hunters’ TV stars and producers, if you’d like to. It depends on what you’re looking for — to follow the stars’ careers, learn more about the Ghost Hunters TV show, or meet the cast & crew, personally.
One general way to find information about the Ghost Hunters’ TV show – through Season 11 – is via SyFy.
That’s the cable network that ran Ghost Hunters for many years. You can visit the site the Syfy.com website and – if it’s still there – click on the link for the Ghost Hunters TV episodes.
You’ll find several options, from direct contact with Syfy, to related forums.
If you want to be part of a show like Ghost Hunters, look for casting calls at the Syfy.com website and similar pages at other networks’ sites.
Or, search online using phrases such as “casting calls,” “ghost TV shows,” and so on.
Comments are disabled on this article, due to the large number of people who try to use this site to reach the TAPS team. Fiona is not part of TAPS and never has been. As of 2017, she rarely investigates private homes, and only at the request of a fellow professional. If you’re tormented by a ghost, see this list of professionals.
At almost every ghost hunting event I attend, long-time fans of Ghost Hunters always ask me why Grant Wilson left the Ghost Hunters TV show.
This question just won’t go away.
On the show and at the TAPS website, Grant explained why he left the Ghost Hunters show.
It wasn’t a sudden decision. It wasn’t related to interpersonal relations with fellow cast members.
From what I saw, Grant got along fine with everyone on the investigation team.
Nothing was inappropriate or hostile, on either side.
As Grant has explained, he simply wanted more time for “other aspects of [his] personal life.”
Not a surprise
His decision did not surprise me. Grant has always been an excellent paranormal investigator. However, I believe that his talents are greater in creative fields, including music and the visual arts.
Several years ago at New Hampshire’s Spalding Inn (which Grant and Jason and their families owned), a few of us were relaxing on the hotel’s porch.
I was completing a landscape painting on the hotel’s porch.
I said, “When I get to the end of the road, I won’t say, ‘Gosh, I wish I’d investigated one more haunted location’. I’m more likely to say, ‘I wish I’d painted one more painting’.”
Grant paused and said quietly, “So true.”
I wasn’t sure if he was simply agreeing with me, or if what I said resonated with him. For many of us involved in paranormal research and the arts, it’s difficult to balance paranormal research and our creative interests.
When a hobby becomes a career
Whether you’re a professional ghost hunter or it’s a hobby, your interests may change. Many – perhaps most – ghost hunters started investigating because they had questions. Often, it’s one particular question.
Some ghost hunters find the answers they seek.
Others conclude that there are no real answers. At that point, they might quit ghost hunting.
Others continue with renewed interest.
I know that Grant was looking for an answer to a paranormal encounter from his childhood.
Did he find it? I haven’t a clue, and don’t know if that was a factor in Grant’s decision.
Nevertheless, I applaud Grant’s decision. He was ready to re-prioritize. Many people – in any field, not just TV – reach that point when their careers become too demanding.
Also, life in “the industry” can skew anyone’s perspective on life and what’s truly important.
So, when Grant Wilson left Ghost Hunters, I wasn’t surprised. The show required a lot of his time, and took him away from his wife and children. I can’t imagine how difficult that was for him, missing memory-making moments as his kids were growing up.
Grant is still ghost hunting
Grant hasn’t vanished from ghost hunting. He still appears at some ghost-related events and conference. He’s just reorganized his time to have more time for what he loves most.
I think that was a smart decision. Having known Grant for over 10 years, I was uneasy about how unhappy he seemed, the longer he was on the show.
Even away from the camera, he said and did things that didn’t seem like the Grant I knew & liked.
Oh, I know how much he loved being on the show. I also saw what it was doing to his personal life.
Now, he gets to meet fans, continue his research, work on creative projects, and enjoy time with his family.
It’s wonderful that Grant’s fans remained so enthusiastic about his work on the show and his personal well-being.

Some of Grant’s books
Ghost Files combines all the creepy stories – and things you didn’t see on TV – from Grant & Jason’s earlier books, Ghost Hunting and Seeking Spirits.
Read it as a printed book, because it’s 560 pages long. That would be a lot to scroll through on a Kindle reader.
(That location was among the “investigations” featured on Extreme Paranormal.)
The Haunted Collector TV series wasn’t nearly as bad as Extreme Paranormal. But, at times, it still made respected researchers such as John Zaffis look… well, stupid. Even gullible. And, some thought he was downright criminal.
In real life, John and his team are among the most honest, ethical and open-minded researchers in this field.
I winced watching the show, seeing what I knew were contrived, uncharacteristic scenes.
But, yes. Maybe.
On the other hand, shows such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures increased interest in ghosts and ghost research. That’s been helpful.
The latter show has featured some preposterous scenes. I sigh and say, “It’s just TV.” I don’t know Zak and his crew, personally, so I’m not sure where the just plain silly things come from.
So, in general, I say yes, ghost hunting TV shows brought more credibility to the subject of ghosts.
People may joke about ghost-related TV shows, but they keep watching them. Privately, I think most people want to believe in an afterlife. Many people want to believe in ghosts, too.
Ghost-related TV shows have given the field enough credibility to attract new researchers. We’re at least one step closer to finding real ghostly evidence.
I believe that shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures have moved paranormal research forward. More people are looking for evidence, and we have more tools to document what we find.
While it lasted, Ghost Lab was another important TV show. The Klinge brothers were daring and honest. Ghost Lab impressed me as much as — and often more than — any other ghost hunting TV series.
If that’s all those shows did, they’ve still made a valuable contribution to the field. I think there’s been an uptick in belief since the shows aired.
Personal field research makes a bigger difference than TV shows.
But, to get people into the field for serious investigations, they have to be interested.
I think ghost-related TV shows were very helpful towards that end.
