YouTube veteran Kassem ‘G’ Gharaibeh has landed a new gig at gamer and pop culture-focused TV and digital network G4 as a member of its on-air talent team.
Gharaibeh will bring his comedic chops to G4’s content across all platforms, including to its flagship series Attack of the Show!
Gharaibeh’s hire arrives ahead of G4’s long-anticipated relaunch, which is slated for later this summer. The network first bowed in 2002 and ceased operations in 2014. A revival on both linear and digital platforms was announced in July 2020.
“Kassem is a gifted comedian and one of the first YouTube creators to popularize San Diego Comic-Con through his hilarious man-on-the-street coverage of fan culture on the convention floor,” Grace Lê, G4’s director of development, said in a statement. “In addition to being an award-winning host, Kassem is incredibly knowledgeable about geek and pop-culture and we’re so excited to bring his talent and expertise to G4’s programming.”
Gharaibeh launched his YouTube channel in 2006 and was one of the co-founders of seminal multi-channel network Maker Studios, which was subsequently acquired by Disney.
Other recent announcements at G4 ahead of its relaunch include the addition of esports pundit Alex ‘Goldenboy’ Mendez to its on-air talent team, the return of popular game show Ninja Warrior, and a partnership with the WWE for a video game competition series later this year hosted by pro wrestler Xavier Woods.
