A new addition to WWE’s broadcast team.

Starting tonight after Friday Night SmackDown, NHL and MLB Network host Jackie Redmond will begin her duties as co-host of Talking Smack and Raw Talk. WWE announced that she has joined the company and is going to be co-hosting the aforementioned programs with The Bump’s Matt Camp.

Redmond broke into the broadcast journalism field in 2011 by way of ‘The Search for Canada’s Next Sportscaster’ on theScore Television Network.

Below is WWE’s write-up about her joining the company:

Jackie Redmond is set to join WWE as the new co-host of Raw Talk and Talking Smack alongside WWE Analyst and co-host of The Bump Matt Camp.

“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.”

A sportscaster with more than 10 years of experience, Redmond 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.

Redmond began her professional career by winning “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.

Join Redmond tonight as she makes her Talking Smack debut immediately following Friday Night SmackDown exclusively on Peacock in the US and WWE Network everywhere else.
