HenryG retires from on-air talent role
Henry "HenryG" Greer has retired from the role of broadcast talent as he is about to take on a new ambitious challenge, the Brit has announced.
The 32-year-old leaves a highly successful career as a commentator behind after realizing the job he had occupied for the last six years was no longer making him happy, as he grew tired of the relentless work schedule and of the lack of evolvement of tournament broadcasts.
In the announcement made through an in-depth interview with DBLTAP, HenryG admitted that the sexual assault accusations made against him in June, which he maintains are false, played a huge part in the decision to step away from the microphone sooner than he had originally planned.
Speaking about his future, the Brit teased that his next move will be "a colossal one for the CS:GO community" as he prepares to take on a new challenge, about which he will officially reveal more details on Monday, September 7 at 20:00 .
HenryG took up commentating in the latter half of 2014, when he made his first big appearance as a member of the Gfinity G3 tournament's on-air talent lineup. Over the course of 2015, he teamed up with Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett and worked at his first two Majors, ESL One Cologne and DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, and the pairing soon went on to gain mass popularity.
According to Liquipedia, by mid-2020 HenryG has worked at over 150 tournaments, which includes the last ten Majors and a plethora of other big prestigious arena events such as ESL One Colognes in 2017 to 2019. His last as a commentator was the Gamers Without Borders charity event at the end of May.
