As VP of global broadcast at Blizzard Entertainment, Pete Emminger leads all broadcast production for Blizzard esports. Pete is responsible for developing and managing all of the broadcast technology tools and overall execution of live broadcasts across Blizzard’s esports programs, including the Overwatch League.
Pete began working with Blizzard Entertainment in 2013 as a consulting technical producer, and moved into his current position at the beginning of 2017. He played a key role in the first edition of Heroes of the Dorm that aired on ESPN in 2015, and has been deeply involved in all of Blizzard’s large-scale esports productions ever since. Most recently, he’s been instrumental in developing a permanent broadcast home for esports at the Blizzard Arena Los Angeles in Burbank, California.
Pete is a fine arts graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. When he isn’t facilitating live broadcasts to every corner of the globe or parsing real-time game statistics, he devotes himself further to his passion for esports by dreaming up new and better ways fine-tune the spectator experience.
