The Voices Who Bring You ELEAGUE

ESPN: “For almost every game, there is a voice. Someone the viewer sees, hears, and connects with while the individual commentates or casts the game. For English soccer, there was John Motson. For Monday Night Football, there’s Al Michaels. For the Olympics, there’s Bob Costas. And for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the second biggest esport in the world, there’s Anders Blume and Auguste ‘Semmler’ Massonnat.”

“For the past couple of years, the dynamic duo has casted nearly every major event. From the Laxness Arena in Cologne, Germany to the Polyvalent Hall in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, Anders and Semmler have been right there to commentate on all of the greatness of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive history.”

“Come this Friday night, the two will have a new challenge: present Counter-Strike to viewers of basic cable’s most-watched entertainment channel, TBS, which will premiere Turner and WME|IMG’s new esports venture, ELEAGUE. It’s not the first of its kind, with DirecTV hosting the Championship Gaming Series — which is commonly known for its failures — in 2007, but it’s the first to be produced by one of America’s top networks.”
