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, 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 has numerous events in the pipeline that she’s chomping at the bit to announce.
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.
