Benson worked as a castor in the competition and has been a long time commentator in the field of Esports. He left the league after an allegation surrounding him and has largely refrained from speaking about the said incident. However, he did let the community know that he’ll be coming with more info soon, and he has.
Hey friends, in case it is not clear, I'm no longer with Activision & the CDL! Unfortunately I cant say much due to advice from legal council (that should tell you everything)
What I can say is, the past week has been the best week of my life, hands down. More info coming soon!

Benson has new plans after departing Call of Duty League

The former CDL caster is aware of how hard things are in the Esports community and is willing to put in efforts to make things better for young talent.
“I would like to think I have helped aided so many different types of talent from so many different esports improve their crafts and I have so many experience in the industry I feel if I applied myself to help others, both up and coming talents and veterans alike, I could have a positive impact.
“I am going to start a Talent Development company with the aim of helping different type of broadcasters within esports.”
Benson will work this in different ways, as he mentioned. Be it through working with developers to procure the best out of a talent or achieving what is best for a show, or even to work with budding individuals and help them reach their potential.
He also thanked everyone who has been a constant support and states how eager he is to work things out. Benson also put forth that the idea was something he has been thinking of for 2 years. Finally implementing the same would mean a lot to him.
