18 December '''Travis Penery'''<br />Everyone at UKGameshows.com is very sad to hear of the death of Travis Penery, one of our contributors and a long-standing member of the UK game show fandom scene.

He also wrote his own blog and contributed UK-skewing articles to the US game show site Buzzerblog. He died aged 29, following complications from a stroke.
