CUMULUS MEDIA’s Westwood One, America’s largest audio network, is inviting you to press play on Esports 30 with Kevin Knocke, the newest addition to Westwood One Podcast Network. Esports 30 with Kevin Knocke is an original podcast covering esports news and in-depth interviews with industry personalities, celebrities, athletes, influencers, and enthusiasts.


Host Kevin Knocke is a gaming industry veteran, professionally involved in esports for nearly a decade as both an executive and personality, first as a commentator for tournaments and later as a popular event host. Initial episodes of Esports 30 have featured Indiana “Froskurinn” Black, Caleb “WavePunk” Simmons, and Alberto “Crumbz” Rengifo. Other notables are slated to appear in the future, including Dr. Lupo.

“Esports is now big enough that it can’t rely on the sunshine and rainbows perspective that it’s the ‘next big thing’ so we need to understand how to develop a sustainable infrastructure for the long term,” said Knocke. “I’ll be inviting on guests with a broad viewpoint of the industry as a whole as well as game-specific experts who are willing to take an honest look at their game and reflect on improvements needed.”

“Kevin has a clear vision, deep-rooted experience, and a genuine passion for esports,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Marketing, CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “He’s a relatable expert offering a unique blend of interviews and honest discourse on what’s happening behind the scenes.”

In addition to breaking down the news and business side of esports, Esports 30 with Kevin Knocke offers a look at fascinating cross-industry connections – such as the relationship between gaming and mental health, as well as the crossroads of esports and fashion. New episodes drop every Tuesday at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, or wherever you get your podcasts.
