On July 7th, Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. announced it had entered into a joint venture with Torstar Corporation. As a result, the two organizations will work together to create an online news platform called AFK.
AFK will launch a crowd-sourcing contest called “Find a Host”. Six finalists will be selected to participate in a series of challenges throughout the summer with a winner scheduled to be chosen as the channel’s main host this coming September.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Torstar on the launch of a channel that will combine our expertise in building engaged online communities with Torstar’s commitment to quality content,” said Adrian Montgomery, CEO of Enthusiast Gaming.
Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. was founded in 2014. The organization is currently based in Toronto, Canada.
