Amanda Leatherman is replacing Kimberly Lansing as the World Poker Tour's online updates hostess. Her announcement video is on the front page of the World Poker Tour site now. She's done poker reporting for Poker Wire, PokerNews.com, and Poker Road, and will continue to work for the latter. "I'm a poker player and have been for quite a while now," Amanda said, "so I am very comfortable talking about hands and strategies. Plus I know a lot of the regulars on tour and it’ll be a lot of fun to talk with them on the webcam." That's her and boyfriend Joe Sebok (who cofounded Poker Road with dad Barry Greenstein) in the photo below.
The WPT's press release also says "In addition to welcoming a new Live Updates hostess, WPT is currently in discussions with candidates for the television hostess role." We'll soon find out if Kimberly Lansing will replace the departing Layla Kayleigh as hostess of the World Poker Tour.
