Aussie Babe Lynn Gilmartin Becomes New WPT Anchor

Aussie Babe Lynn Gilmartin Becomes New WPT Anchor A short while after joining the WPT team to host the Alpha8 high roller broadcasts, Lynn Gilmartin has now replaced Kimberly Lansing as the televised poker series’ lead anchor.
Kimberly Lansing became the first ever female anchor of a major poker series when she joined the series three seasons ago, but has now left the show, although she was quick to point out she was not retiring from TV.
Commenting on the change of hostesses for the WPT weekly broadcasts, WPT Chairman Adam Pliska said: “Kimberly will always be part of the WPT family, even if she’s no longer sitting in the anchor’s chair. We’re saddened by her departure as Kim helped define the anchor role and elevate the World Poker Tour episodes to another level. We’re thrilled that Lynn is able to step in and carry on the tradition of providing the expertise and fun Kim has brought to our events and broadcasts over the past few years.”
Kimberly Lansing will now make her final television appearance at the WPT Foundation Ladies’ Night Invitational on September 5th, where she will be playing poker and helping to raise money for a number of women’s charities, alongside such poker pros as Vanessa Rousso, Lily Kileto, Jessica Dawley and Liz Lieu.
In the meantime, Lynn Gilmartin has already assumed her new anchor role at the WPT and is currently hosting the series’s first televised event of Season VII, the WPT Legends of Poker at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California. Lynn Gilmartin’s past hostessing experience comes from working with PokerNews and ESPN Australia, and commenting on her new position as the WPT lead anchor, said:
“Joining the WPT team for Alpha8 was dream come true. Kimberly is someone I’ve admired since I first started working in poker and now, to follow her on the WPT? I have some huge shoes to fill and am overwhelmingly honoured to be given this opportunity.”
