Charly Arnolt (AKA: Charly Caruso) has officially left the WWE.
Arnolt will be joining ESPN on a full-time basis in April as part of a new, multi-year contract extension.
In addition to her ESPN Podcast First Take, Her Take, Arnolt will continue to contribute to select editions of ESPN’s morning debate show First Take and the network’s signature news and information show, SportsCenter. Arnolt will regularly appear on ESPN+’s weekday morning show SportsNation along with other digital shows across the industry-leading sports streaming service as well.
It is so incredibly exciting to become a full-time member of the ESPN family,” she said. “I look forward to continuing to grow with such a talented group of professionals and I can’t wait for all the opportunities that lie ahead.”
Arnolt also posted this on Instagram: “I am SO excited to announce I have accepted a full-time position with ESPN! It feels so rewarding to take this next step in my career with a company that has really fostered my growth, and given me a bounty of huge opportunities, since first bringing me on board in 2018. As I take this monumental next step in my career, I can’t do so without thanking so many of the people at WWE who I’ve spent the last nearly 5 years with. Thank you to those on and off camera who I had the chance to connect with not only professionally, but personally. Some true gems! And of course, thank you to the WWE Universe, a network of some of the most loyal fans in the world. I hope you all continue to stay in touch because your encouragement means everything! Lastly, thank you so very much to my family and friends who have believed in me and my dreams every step of the way. It’s been quite the journey! I love you all.”
Arnolt joined the WWE in 2016 as a backstage NXT interviewer and soon moved up to the main roster often hosting the WWE pay-per-view kick-off, pre-shows and taking over the position held previously by Renee Young.
