Vinnie Caravela, Alex Navarro and Brad Shoemaker, founders of A giant bomb team, announced today that they are leaving the site.
During record a live podcast on Twitch, the three announced that their last day was Friday. A giant bomb founder Jeff Gerstman remains in place for now.
A giant bomb was founded in 2008 by Gerstman and fellow journalist Ryan Davis after Gerstman contradictory shooting from GameSpot, and will eventually hire a few exes GameSpot editors such as Caravella, Navarro and Shoemaker to fill its ranks. At the time, he was distancing himself from other gaming media, focusing on a subscription model that relied heavily on its hosts’ ability to act as individuals rather than strict journalists.
After coming down from the ground in San Francisco, A giant bomb opened an office in New York in 2014, known as Giant Bomb East, which created a separate podcast and unique projects before the covid-19 pandemic and the departure of staff forced the team to reunite into one group. Other remarkable A giant bomb employees over the years include Patrick Klepek and Austin Walker, both of whom now work at DEPUTYand WWE podcast producer Dan Rikert and alive meme Drew Scanlon.
