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 her hosting Ginx TV’s The Bridge, and the ESL Hearthstone Premiership Final in January.

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.
