A reporter published false information about a cast member from "Ghost Adventures" last Tuesday. According to the Empire News report, one of the cast members of the popular ghost-hunting television series got fired from the show. "Ghost Adventures" host Zak Bagans posted on his Twitter page today that the rumors weren't true.
Entertainment contributor Raoul Stockton of Empire News published an article about "Ghost Adventures" star Aaron Goodwin last week. The piece was titled "'Ghost Adventures' Star Gets Fired, Reveals Disappointing Truth About Paranormal Television Series" and was posted on July 28. In the article, Stockton claimed that Goodwin got fired from Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures" due to an interview where Goodwin allegedly went on an 8-minute rant about the Travel Channel making him fake evidence.
Aaron Goodwin has been fired from the Travel Channel television series Ghost Adventures, according to Travel Channel executive and spokesman Richard Roscolelli. Goodwin was fired from the series following a rant while being interviewed on a popular podcast. During the interview on the Are We Alone show hosted by Joshua Sweeney, Goodwin went on about an eight minute rant about how the Travel Channel took everything that was authentic and truly paranormal about the show and made a mockery of it by making the crew record its own voices in place of actual EVP’s (Electronic Voice Phenomena) when filming did not reveal enough evidence to satisfy producers.
Goodwin posted on his Twitter account yesterday that allegations toward him in the article are false. According to Goodwin, he is currently in Ireland filming episodes for season 10 of the "Ghost Adventures" series.
During the two-hour podcast, Goodwin dished out the disappointing facts. It did not stop with the Travel Channel making them record their own EVP’s but he says they actually made them go back and film reactions of the crew so that they would act surprised when hearing things that did not actually occur.
Goodwin was quoted in the article saying:
If we film all night long and came back with uneventful material, they actually make us go back, and act out scenes. It’s sickening really,” said an angry Goodwin. “This started off as a real thing, it is just not consistent and active enough for the big-shots at the network, so they basically have turned us into liars. We have been committing a fraud in my eyes and I’ve just about had enough.
According to Stockton's report, Travel Channel spokesman Roscolelli claims that all three cast members of the series are involved in a nasty feud and the show will go on without Goodwin.

The popular paranormal program premiered on the Travel Channel on October 17, 2008 and the network recently announced in April that they renewed "Ghost Adventures" for another season. The series returns this fall for its tenth season with 13 new one hour episodes and it will remain in its Saturday night time-slot. A new "Ghost Adventures" spin off series called "Ghost Adventures: Aftershocks" also premiered this year.
After the conclusion of season nine, Goodwin was featured in an episode of Nick Groff's new online series. Goodwin appeared on the Travel Channel's new series "Ghost Fit" in which he shared his pre-lockdown ritual.
