SAN DIEGO, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle
Beach® (Nasdaq: HEAR) and its Hamburg, Germany-based PC brand,
ROCCAT®, today announced it is the title sponsor of the
acclaimed The Gamer Hour program for a 12-episode arc
starting with a teaser episode today, and officially kicking off on
Nov. 17, 2020. Hosted by Esports Hall
of Fame broadcaster, Chris Puckett,
and produced by Esportz Network and Reuters Broadcast Solutions,
The Gamer Hour is a weekly talk show where Puckett
interviews top pro athletes, musicians, comedians, and actors about
their love of gaming. Conversations often cover what they grew up
playing, the games and accessories they're excited for, and how
gaming plays an important role in their lives today. As part of the
agreement, each episode's gaming session will be sponsored by
Turtle Beach when Puckett and his guest play on consoles, and by
ROCCAT when they play on PC. Each episode also features random game
challenges where viewers have the opportunity to win prizes
including the latest Stealth™ 700 & 600 Gen 2
headsets for Xbox and PlayStation from Turtle Beach, as well as
ROCCAT's award-winning Vulcan™ series keyboards,
Burst™ series mice, Elo™ series PC
headsets, and more.
"We're excited to be working with Esports Network and The
Gamer Hour to highlight the positive impact gaming plays in the
lives of some fascinating people," notes Ryan Dell, SVP Global Marketing at Turtle Beach.
"Chris and team at The Gamer Hour are developing amazing
content and we look forward to seeing more episodes."
During a varied gaming career going back to 2002, Chris Puckett has been an esports broadcaster,
player, producer, tournament lead, and commentator. Starting as a
professional player in the early competitive scenes of Halo and
Call of Duty, he quickly became one of esports' top personalities.
Since Overwatch League's inaugural season in 2018, his two years as
a primary host helped pave the way for his ongoing success.
Puckett's recent celebrity guests in The Gamer Hour's debut
season include rising NBA standouts Josh
Hart and Hamidou Diallo, and
top NFL wide receiver Kendrick
Bourne, among others.
"We are excited to be working with Turtle Beach as a leading
sponsor, and as a top brand that is well known in the gaming
industry," said Mark Thimmig,
chairman, CEO of Esportz Network. "Turtle Beach headsets are a
favorite of gamers, making The Gamer Hour the perfect
showcase for their brand and products."
Esportz Network's exciting new entertainment esports talk show
was designed to meet the ever-increasing demand for high-quality,
fun, and compelling video-on-demand esports and gaming programming.
The first late night show dedicated to all things gaming and
esports puts you the gamer – first and foremost – with your
favorite celebrities playing and talking about your favorite games,
every Tuesday night at 6 p.m. PST.
The show appeals to a broad audience including dedicated and casual
gamers through the draw of its celebrity guests.
Turtle Beach's Stealth 700 Gen 2 and Stealth
600 Gen 2 gaming headsets are the successors to the brand's
original best-selling wireless headsets, and were the first
cross-generation compatible headsets available that work with both
the current Xbox and PlayStation consoles as well as the
all-new Xbox Series X|S and PS5™ systems. On the PC side, ROCCAT's
all-new Elo 7.1 Air, Elo 7.1 USB, and Elo X Stereo PC
headsets combine the best of ROCCAT's award-winning German design
and engineering with Turtle Beach's audio expertise and exclusive
technologies. ROCCAT also recently introduced new additions to its
award-winning Vulcan keyboard design with the
Vulcan Pro, Vulcan TLK Pro, and
Vulcan TKL. The two Pro models debut
the brand's groundbreaking Titan Optical Switch™ that
registers response rates 100 times faster than standard mechanical
switches, with a lifespan twice as long at 100 million clicks.
ROCCAT's new Burst mice also use Titan Optical
Switch technology to be the fastest and most responsive
mice available, and the Burst Pro's translucent
honeycomb shell makes it one of the lightest mice at just 68 grams
while displaying ROCCAT's AIMO®
intelligent lighting like never before.

City Times Square Reuters studio, is available globally now on
