Update – the Klinge Brothers are once again participating in private investigations and paranormal events which are open to the public.
You can follow their activities at Everyday Paranormal.com.
“The time has come for us to get back to our lives and concentrate on other endeavors. So it is with the duality of a heavy heart and excitement for our future that I announce our official departure from the paranormal scene.”
Complete Announcement from Everyday Paranormal Facebook:
“Hello. This is Brad Klinge, Founder of Everyday Paranormal. Today, August 7th, 2012, marks the end of an era and the beginning of another.
I started on this journey twenty-two years ago after my experience in 1990 on the battelfields of Gettysburg that most of you now are aware of. Years of research and thought went into my scientific study of how this paranormal stuff actually works leading up to my 2007 formation of the investigative group Everyday Paranormal.
In just two short years of ground-breaking research, techniques, and analysis, we all of a sudden found ourselves on the Discovery Channel filming “Ghost Lab” in 2009. It was a whirlwind two seasons and 26 episodes.
Barry and I both left our real careers and pursued the paranormal full-time despite taking drastic pay cuts and major time away from our families to do it. We sacrificed our personal lives for the advancement of true paranormal study, and we were absolutely successful.
Those 26 episodes allowed us to investigate 52 broadcasted locations around the country in addition to hundreds of other places by invitation. In just three short years after starting to film “Ghost Lab”, Everyday Paranormal is now one of the most (if not the most) respected paranormal research team not only in the United States, but around the world in nearly 60 countries.
We successfully took over the world, and it is something I am very proud of. Anyone can capture evidence, but how many people can say they have actually been able to scientifically quantify the results so much so that activity has become predictable and the techniques by which to get it have become repeatable?
The answer is Everyday Paranormal.
But now Barry and I (known more commonly as The Klinge Brothers), are stepping down from the day to day leadership and operations of Everyday Paranormal. The time has come for us to get back to our lives and concentrate on other endeavors. So it is with the duality of a heavy heart and excitement for our future that I announce our official departure from the paranormal scene.
Here is what will happen…
We are handing the reigns of Everyday Paranormal to our good friend Johnny Houser.
As you may know, we met Johnny a couple years ago when we filmed a “Ghost Lab” episode at the Villisca Ax Murder House in which he runs. Johnny is a awesome guy–very laid back, very dedicated to the paranormal, and very well-liked in the community (not to mention he kicks ass on the guitar).
We are confident that Johnny will continue the tradition of Everyday Paranormal and will continue to take it to the next level. He will be continuing with the film series we started for Roku called “The Dead Truth”, and you will see him around the country representing EP at conventions and lectureships. He will also continue to be on the EP Facebook page, and he will be creating a whole new EP website.
While Barry and I will always be the founding fathers, Johnny will now be captain of the ship. Will you still see The Klinge Brothers at paranormal conventions and such? Possibly, but not likely–at least for a good period of time. The Klinge Brothers will now be taking over the world in another way……but that is a whole other story.
I will be working with Johnny over the next couple of months to make sure everything transitions smoothly. As I mentioned, he will be continuing to edit episodes of The Dead Truth, so there are still a few episodes with Barry and I in it that have not premiered yet.
Barry and I will be attending the Ft. Mifflin event in Philadelphia this weekend (8/11/12) and we will be at the East Texas Ghost Con in Marshall, Texas, the following weekend (8/18/12). Those are the last two times that you will see us, so if you can make it out, it will be well worth it.
I hate long good-byes, so we shall see yall around somewhere in the future. Thank you for helping make Everyday Paranormal what it is today.
Please welcome Johnny to his new leadership role and give him the same support you have always given us. We wish him the best of luck taking care of the baby I raised. Remember Johhny…we know where you live!”
