The Travel Channel is releasing a new ghost-hunting series called, ‘Trending Fear’ and a Harrison resident is one of the hosts.
Paul Bradford, ghost hunter, lead investigator and local hosts the show along with Adam Ellis and Jen Lewis.
“I got into the paranormal at the age of, I guess, 5, when ‘Ghostbusters’ came out,” Bradford said. “I grew up wanting to be a Ghostbuster, really.”
Bradford is from the United Kingdom. This isn’t the first ghost-hunting show that he’s been a part of; he was also in Syfy‘s “Ghost Hunters International.”
“The idea was very different from what I’d done before, as well as the fact that it was there to help people as opposed to just check out how cool this location is,” Bradford said. “It was one that was going to deal with going into residential locations, peoples homes and trying to genuinely help these families understand what’s going on, and even if we can put some sort of closure on that situation.”
There are six episodes, each one in a different part of the country. The episodes feature voodoo, haunting, ghostly voices and more.
So far in Greater Cincinnati, Bradford has visited Bobby Mackey’s, the Mansfield Reformatory and hopes to visit more haunted sites throughout the region.. He also participates in area Comic Cons and the Renaissance Festival.
“Again, I’m just a huge nerd,” Bradford said.
“Harrison is very similar to where I grew up, as a kid, back in England,” Bradford said. “It’s rural, but it’s developing. To be fair, 30 minutes down the road, you have the city. It’s close to Cincinnati but not too close.”
After eight weeks of filming, “Trending Fear” will premiere on Friday, Dec. 20, at 11 p.m. on the Travel Channel.
Bradford will be live-tweeting from @GhostGuyPaul during the premiere, using #TrendingFear. Bradford says he will try to respond to as many people as possible.
