The CBS news program known as ’60 minutes’ will be covering the CPL winter event this year. For those of you who have never heard of 60 mintutes, It’s been in Nielsen’s Top 10 programs a record 23 consecutive seasons and an average of 14 million viewers tune into the broadcast every week. It is a very mainstream program in the USA; Dustin Hoffman, Jim Carrey, and Alicia Keys have all been featured on the show recently. Now its time for the CPL’s turn.
Okay heres the good news.. 60 Minutes will be focusing primarily on the competitors of the USA national Painkiller qualifier for the $1,000,000 CPL World Tour. Not only could you guys be travelling to America to play in the first Painkiller world tour qualifyer, but theres a large possibility you could be on TV and viewed by over 14 million people aswell!
I am very pleased to see this anouncement. It will surely help e-sports a hell of a lot and I would like to thank the CPL for their grand efforts.
