Frankie Ward spent the past ten years as a producer, but it was only when she produced coverage of the 2015 League of Legends Worlds Quarter-Finals at Wembley for the BBC, that she realised that she could make gaming her career.
Moving to Twitch as a producer for Twitch Studios in July 2016, Frankie occasionally popped up onstage to cover for hosts who needed a break. This led to signing with agency Code Red, hosting Ginx TV’s The Bridge, and the ESL Hearthstone Premiership Final in January. Since going full-time as a host in April 2018, Frankie has desk hosted games including NHL 18, CSGO and PUBG and become the face of the Omen Esports Report, alongside Pala Gilroy-Sen. In June 2018, she was given the huge opportunity of co-hosting the PC Gaming Show at E3 – a show that reached an audience of over two million viewers, and made her mark on the Counter-Strike esports scene in the reporting role at the ESL Intel Extreme Masters CS:GO Major Championship the following February.
Bringing humour and wit, as well as enthusiastic knowledge to the events she hosts, Frankie’s outlook is that, now esports is a serious business, we can start having fun with it.
