HenryG, popular CS:GO caster, retires from his broadcasting role
After an illustrious career as an esports caster, former CS:GO pro Henry "HenryG" Greer has decided to retire. He has covered more than 150 events which include 10 Major tournaments in a span of 6 years.
His commentary alongside another legendary caster Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett will be sorely missed. The duo of HenryG and Sadokist is considered to be one of the best casting pair of CS:GO.
The job no longer made him happy
In his interview with DeKay, HenryG commented that, "I realised that I was pretty much done with commentary. It simply wasn’t making me happy anymore. I was jaded beyond belief at the schedule of work each and every year and the broadcasts in general just weren’t evolving in any sort of groundbreaking way." Henry also thinks that with CS:GO going online owing to the covid pandemic, it is time to hang-up the microphone and explore new ventures.
One of the reasons for retiring earlier than planned was the sexual assault allegations made against in June, which he affirms are false.
He adds, "I have certainly had feelings of retirement for a while now, but I had a road-map for how I wanted to go out. In my way. There was more to do.That opportunity has been gutted from me."
A big next move
Henry adds, "I have been very blessed in my career and have achieved almost all of my goals and tangible objectives." He was winner of the ‘Esports Broadcaster of the year’ towards the end of 2019.
He has further commented that "I have never been hungrier to conquer my next challenge."and "On the 7th of September - you’ll see that I’m not kidding when I say that my next move is going to be a colossal one for the CS:GO community." Fans are eagerly waiting to see what their favourite caster brings to the table next.
