World Poker Tour (WPT) introduced today Layla Kayleigh, the new WPT hostess for Season VI. Layla will make her debut tonight at the Mirage Poker Showdown, kicking off the first Season VI final table.
Specializing in celebrity interviews, video game industry events, and pop culture trends, 25-year old Layla is already well-versed in television and media. Her vast resume includes being an on-air correspondent for Fox Sport’s “Best Damn Sports Show Period” and The Vegas Insider, as well as co-hosting G4’s Attack of the Show and hosting “The Feed” news segment.
The London native has also previously hosted for MTV in Britain, ABC Football, and on Al Gore’s Current TV, and can be heard weekly on Sirius Maxim Radio on the Covino and Rich Show. Layla has been featured in Maxim Magazine and played the lead role in the feature film “A Simple Promise,” due out in 2007.
“From the first casting interview with her, we knew Layla would be a great fit for Season VI,” said Robyn Moder, Executive Vice President, WPT Studios. “Not only does she have an impressive TV background hosting in the sports and entertainment world, but she is energetic, intelligent and strikingly beautiful — the perfect combination to engage WPT fans. We are thrilled to welcome Layla to the WPT family.”
WPT Season VI episodes will begin airing in early 2008 as part of GSN’s Monday night casino lineup where the network has built a substantial following in the casino game genre. Season V currently airs every Wednesday night on the Travel Channel at 9PM Eastern/Pacific.
