Josh Gates (Destination Truth) To Host Six-Hour Live Broadcast

Allison Scagliotti (Warehouse 13) Joins as Co-Host

Featuring Team Members From the Entire Hit 'Ghost Hunters' Franchise And More Syfy Stars!

New York, NY - October 28, 2010 - On Sunday, October 31 from 7pm-1am, join Syfy for the biggest Ghost Hunters Halloween Live event ever! This year's broadcast, featuring a live six-hour investigation at the Buffalo Central Terminal in Buffalo, NY, will mark the TAPS team's biggest live investigation: 18 cameras, plus four exclusive camera feeds on Syfy.com, will be stationed to capture haunts throughout the massive terminal.

Josh Gates (Destination Truth) will host the event, and for the first time will be joined by a co-host: Allison Scagliotti (Warehouse 13). Team members from the entire Ghost Hunters franchise, along with some special guests, will head into the dark depths of the abandoned building to take on the myriad of paranormal occurrences within its walls.

Investigators Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Amy Bruni, Kris Williams, Barry FitzGerald and Adam Berry (winner of Ghost Hunters Academy) will be joined by a cavalcade of Syfy stars brave enough to assume the role of paranormal investigator for the evening:

Meaghan Rath (Being Human)

Ben Hansen (Fact or Faked)

WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston

Special appearance by Joe Maddalena (Hollywood Treasure)

As always, syfy.com/ghosthunterslive will serve as the evening's online companion to the live hunt. This year, viewers will be able to interact with the team in more ways than ever, including:

live chats with members of the Ghost Hunters team from Syfy.com's interactive center

access to four live camera feeds inside the Terminal, exclusive to Syfy.com

the return of the popular "Panic Button," where viewers can alert the team to something they see on the live broadcast

photos and live updates throughout the evening's broadcast on Syfy.com and on Twitter (@ghosthunters)

In addition, Ghost Hunters Halloween Live will feature a partnership with the Dodge brand, who will serve as the presenting sponsor of the popular special. As part of the title partnership, the Dodge Grand Caravan will have a significant presence both on-air and online, all month long. On Halloween night, the Grand Caravan will play an integral role throughout the event, as the minivan's technology will be used to enhance the TAPS team's hunt throughout the six hours.

In October 2004, Syfy introduced Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson - plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night! The success of its spin-off series, Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters Academy, cemented the Ghost Hunters brand as the top paranormal franchise in cable. Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters Academy are produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television (Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter, My Fair Wedding). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as Sci Fi Channel, and currently in 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
