The WPT has released their official statement on
“Layla Kayleigh brought great edge, whit, and personality to the World Poker Tour as hostess in Season VI, and we sincerely wish her well as she continues to explore her TV career. We are currently casting for the Season VII TV hostess role, and look forward to introducing her to everyone soon.”
Rumors are also swirling that
Mike Sexton’s contract is up, he is not expected to return (his wife is pregnant with his first child). Linda Johnson’s last episode will be the WPT Ladies Night at Bellagio. I don’t know what will happen to Van Patton. It is unknown if GSN will renew the WPT contract, the new CEO is alleged to be anti-poker. I think we are looking at the end of the WPT.
Remember the last time
While we don’t think this is the end of the WPT, it will be interesting to see what direction the company will take in the near future.
