Richard Lewis JournalistELEAGUE

Dexerto’s Editor-at-Large, Richard Lewis, has been announced as the host of PGL Major Stockholm as part of a star-studded broadcast team for the showpiece event.

PGL has announced the on-air team for its upcoming Counter-Strike Major, with Richard Lewis, Dexerto’s Editor-at-Large, included on an impressive talent list that appeals to nostalgia.

The broadcast team for PGL Major Stockholm, the first CS:GO Major in two years, includes most of the biggest broadcast names in the scene, including a few that have been fairly detached from the game. Daniel ‘ddk’ Kapadia has been commentating on Valorant almost exclusively for the past 12 months, while Matthew ‘Sadokist’ Trivett has made only a handful of broadcast appearances in the last two years in a variety of roles.
