Graham, who got his start playing Quake 3 competitively, has been a voice of note in the eSports scene for years. In addition to hosting multiple shows on OneMoreGame.TV, Graham has created eSports content for DirecTV, Dish Network, Samsung, and G4TV. Moving forward, Graham will focus more on the business side of things at TwitchTV, managing relationships and working with leagues, personalities, tournaments and other organizations in an effort to further promote pro-gaming.
Harding, who also made a name for himself as a pro-gamer and caster, will also be bringing many years of experience to TwitchTV. Most recently, Harding was the eSport manager and competitive feature designer for Funcom’s Bloodline Champions.
The announcement of Graham and Harding’s new roles in business development at TwitchTV is exciting because if pro-gaming is ever going to reach a larger audience, it needs more people like this steering the ship. Graham and Harding have lived the life as competitors, casters, and hosts; they understand the audience, the community, and most importantly, the games.
