WPT hostess Amanda Leatherman to leave the popular poker telecast

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Feb 19, 2010 Posted in US Poker News, WPT News | No Comments »

Poker News Daily has confirmed that Amanda Leatherman and the WPT have parted ways. Amanda has done an excellent job acting as the hostess of the show, and has interviewed just about every professional poker player at some point.

Leatherman has been the hostess since season 7, taking over the interviewing and special segment role made famous by Shana Hiatt: Other WPT hostesses have included, Courtney Friel, Sabina Gadecki, Layla Kayleigh, and Kimberly Lansing.

Of all the former hostesses, Leatherman definitely had the most poker chops, which she has utilized to make herself one of the best interviewers in all of poker.

The Internet poker forums are buzzing over where Amanda will land next, with most of the speculation revolving around PokerStars recently created North American Poker Tour. Another possibility would be for Leatherman to join one of the numerous poker broadcasts springing up across television and radio.
