Kimberly Lansing Bio

Kimberly Lansing grew up in Southern California in the town of Rancho Mirage. Kimberly Lansing has a look of an all American Girl, she is the sweet, friendly, gorgeous, and fun. Kimberly Lansing graduated from University of SC and started her career writing for Associate Press. After hosting a couple of news stations, in a very short period of time she got a job at People Magazine covering Hollywood red carpet events. She was introduced to the game at her birthday party. She immediately felt in love with the game and started to play online poker poker games. Her passion for poker landed her a new job on OnGame Network’s Poker Classic at the Casino de Barcelona.

Then, in March 2007, she reported at the World Poker Tour Celebrity Invitational Tournament for People Magazine. It was there that the WPT took notice of Lansing’s good looks and charming personality, in addition to the natural way she talked about poker. She was offered a job as their online hostess, a position that hadn’t previously existed and was essentially created for her. Lansing took the job, and did it well – soon she was traveling the tournament circuit, reporting live from the casino floor with news and interviews that were miles away from the flat and boring clips that had become common in the industry.

For most of her career Kimberly Lansing has been basically known as an entertainment reporter, but, as she admits, there’s a big difference between covering the Hollywood crowd and reporting on Professional Poker Players. In poker, there’s really nothing uncomfortable about it. When Kimberly Lansing is interviewing a poker player, well, it’s grueling out there. They’ play online poker games for hours upon hours upon hours, so you never know what you are going to get, what kind of a mood. Sometimes it’s more difficult getting it out of them – getting the entertainment out of them because when you are on camera you want people to stay there and watch it so you need to find something newsworthy or interesting about it, but there is nothing that Kimberly Lansing has to ask poker players that makes her nervous.
