Kevin Rose, one half of the hosting duo behind Revision3’s most popular web series of all time, Diggnation, is apparently not leaving the web show after five years, despite a report by TechCrunch today to the contrary.
The TechCrunch report from Michael Arrington cite a source that they “believe is accurate,” claiming that Rose will be leaving the series. It didn’t however mention any time frame for the departure.
While not responding directly for comment, Rose instead turned to Twitter-and his 1.1 million followers—to make a statement on the issue:
A statement we received from Revision3 confirmed this as well: “Kevin and Alex will remain hosting the show through at least 2010 . We will also be announcing an exciting new video project of Kevin’s on Revision3 in the coming months.”
The series, along with TekZilla and Scam School, makeup the Revision3’s most watched web series with over 200,000 views per episode (over 1 million monthly views) and an even more impressive cultish following at live tapings of Diggnation at events like SXSW. While Rose recently took over the CEO role at Digg.com from Jay Adelson, there was no indication that he would stop making the weekly series.
Another live Diggnation is scheduled for June 25th as part of Revision3’s fifth birthday party celebration in San Francisco.
