Ginx eSports TV has announced a brand new daily show called The Bridge that will see industry professionals discussing the latest goings on in the world of eSports.
The dedicated eSports channel has managed to secure former ESL caster and host Alex “Machine” Richardson, ESL stage host and BBC reporter OJ Borg and professional streamer Marcella “Nysira” de Bie as the hosts of the new show.
The first episode will air on November 28th at 8pm and will be three hours long. It will be broadcast on the Ginx eSports TV channel on Sky and Virgin as well as on the Ginx Twitch channel. Broadcasts will then continue every weekday and will all be three hours long, which is a lot of content.
In order to try and make a big splash with the first episode guests such as Duncan “Thorin” Shields, Jorien “Sheever” van der Heijden, and Owen “ODPixel” Davies have been lined up, according to Dot eSports. Other big names will also be featured on the show via call ins.
“We threw the reins over to the fans, the players and the content creators and asked them if they could build it how would it be,” said Producer David Kangas. “So we’ve ended up with The Bridge, a crossing place for eSports where we can talk to whoever we want, about whatever game we want, whenever and however we want. That feels like a great starting point.”
