Jeff Belanger

Jeff Belanger, Author of over a dozen books, Television personality, paranormal investigator and many other roles, this man is a walking encyclopedia of paranormal information, speculation, hypothesis and history.

Some of you may recognise Jeff from his appearences on Ghost Adventures, Paranormal Challenge, the hugely popular cable television, and internet show “30 Odd Minutes” or from various other television interviews or appearances on such television, radio shows & channels as:

The Maury Show
Sunday Morning: with Charles Osgood
The CBS Early Show
The History Channel
The Travel Channel
Biography (Channel )
PBS (Channel)
Living TV (Channel)
..and that's just a very small sample of the networks and radio broadcasters Jeff has appeared on, this is one busy man!

After watching a lot “30 odd minutes” recently, I have pondered why Jeff isn't a household name, not just in the paranormal world, but in the community at large, his easy-going demeanour, vast knowledge and sense of humour lend him an approachable, and somewhat “I feel like I know that guy” feel, which is probably why he is a sought after lecturer on all things paranormal, and also why he isn’t a household name, because, quite frankly, he isn’t in your face and self promoting quite as much as a lot of lesser knowledgeable investigators in the field, who inevitable come crashing down with a mighty thump when their “google search” based research falls short – more kudos to you Mr Belanger!
Jeff was born in 1974, and studied at Hofstra University graduating with a B.A. In English, he then went on to become editor of “Main Street” a bi-weekly entertainment newspaper in Fairfield county, Connecticut – currently, besides all his public appearances, he also works as a marketing and public relations consultant for private and public sector companies.
