Chris "Chhopsky" Pollock is the former Editor-In-Chief for ProvingGrounds.tv. Chhopsky has had multiple careers in his esports tenure, from the League of Legends LPL broadcast, caster, interviewer, journalist, and now currently works for Demonware, a programming subsidiary for Activision-Blizzard. Many new faces to esports will not recognize his name, but he is attributed to be one of the key people in helping the LPL reach western audiences.
Esports journalism could be in crisis mode. Several esports media sites have closed down throughout recent years and it becomes increasingly difficult to justify working in the space. Esports Heaven sat down with Chhopsky to discuss the shuttering of ProvingGrounds.tv, unpaid work in esports, funding, and the future of esports journalism.
