Leading subscription television channel and program production company, XYZnetworks today announced that after seven highly successful years Andrew G will be leaving the Network to pursue other creative opportunities.

During his time with Channel [V] Andrew has presented a range of music shows including, Andrew G’s Excellent Adventure, whatUwant, Australian Idol Extra, the popular touring live bus shows and BIG DAY OUT live broadcasts.

Bruce Mann, Chief Executive Officer of XYZnetworks says, “Andrew has had a wonderful run with us, having been with Channel [V] for seven years. He is a great talent and we wish him all the best with his endeavours.”

Andrew G said, “Channel [V] taught me so much – from live television, to dealing with the world’s most famous musicians, to entertaining 5000 people at a bus show in Dubbo. They’re a fabulous crew of people to work with and I was blessed to be a part of making fun, inspirational and groundbreaking television with them.”

    That was in the Perth newspaper yesterday exactly word for word.

    You’ll be missed, G. I think I finally just outgrew Channel V.

  5. Jeffro says:

    I go away for a couple of weeks and on my return I find that G is leaving [v]!! So [v] will be G-less, and G will be [v]-less! Does that mean your e-mail address will be changing to something like andrewgthatguyformerlyfromv@yahoo.com?

    I know my quirky limericks have been sorely missed while I’ve been away… NOT! I might even add some comments to the last few posts if/as (maybe that should be “as if”) time permits.

    And my lame website is back up and running too.

    After a long stint with Channel [v]…
    Time for ‘goodbye’ from Andrew G.
    After seven great years,
    A change of careers,
    But I hope he’ll still be on TV.

    Wow. Shock. Channel [v]is you to me. Although it has been going down hill lately.

    You’ll be missed.

  7. Kimsa says:

    You will be missed on V. But it is time for you to do other things. It is always important to learn and grow and after 7 years it is a good time to try something new. But will we still see you on Australian Idol Extra? Because I actually liked that show almost more then the actual one. I hope they give you a party with some nice vegan treats…..goodluck and please keep us up to date with whatever else you get up to. Cheers G.
