WWE today announced the hiring of sports broadcaster Jackie Redmond as their newest member of the WWE broadcast team.
The 34-year-old Canadian will be the new co-host of Raw Talk and Talking Smack, joining Matt Camp from The Bump.
“As someone who grew up on Stone Cold Stunners and Rock Bottoms, I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am to join WWE,” said Redmond. “There is nothing quite like the WWE Universe and I am so grateful for the opportunity to engage with the most passionate and dedicated fans in sports entertainment every week on Raw Talk and Talking Smack.”
Redmond has been a sportscaster for over 10 years and currently serves as a host and reporter covering hockey for both the NHL Network and Turner Sports. She previously spent six years as an anchor for Rogers Sportsnet in Canada, covering all sports as a reporter and hosting a variety of studio programs, including Sportsnet Central and WWE Aftermath.
She began her career after winning the Gillette DRAFTED 3: The Search for Canada’s Next Sportscaster on theScore Television Network in 2011, becoming the only female winner in the show’s five-year history.
