Dash Receives Own Roadshow For LCS
Dash had announced his departure from the LCS analyst desk earlier in January 2023, but it seems that he isn't completely gone from the broadcast. Dash will be back for 2023, but instead of being confined to the analyst desk Riot have given him the creative freedom to for a new roadshow, which will follow players outside the arena.
This is means to give fans a closer look at their favorite players and to create a stronger connected between them. So while Dash is going to be able to explore other games as well with his hosting and analyst desk skill, but he won't be leaving the LCS completely, which should have some fans relieved.
