It was announced earlier today that Renee Young will now officially be a full-time member of the RAW Announce Team, replacing Jonathan Coachman.
WWE’s Public Relations Twitter made the announcement, saying “[email protected] joins the Monday Night #Raw announce team! @WWE today announced changes to its broadcasting team, naming Renee Young as the first woman to join the Monday Night Raw broadcast booth full time.”
Renee will now join Corey Graves and Michael Cole every week going forward starting tonight in New Orleans.
WWE announced the following on their website regarding Renee’s promotion:
“Starting tonight, Renee Young will be the first woman to join the Raw broadcast booth full-time.
She will now bring her unique voice and perspective to the longest-running weekly episodic program in the U.S. as she joins Michael Cole and Corey Graves at the commentary desk. Renee joined WWE in 2012 and has served as a backstage interviewer and commentator on Raw, SmackDown LIVE and NXT. She is currently part of the Mae Young Classic commentary team on WWE Network.
In turn, Jonathan Coachman will take over as the new host of WWE’s pay-per-view kickoff shows. A veteran broadcaster with more than 20 years of experience hosting shows for WWE, ESPN, MSG Network and the Golf Channel, Coachman will bring his unique style to millions of viewers around the world on WWE Network, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and WWE.com, as the host of WWE’s pay-per-view kickoff shows. Coachman will begin his new role this Sunday, Sept. 16 alongside WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, David Otunga, Sam Roberts and Peter Rosenberg prior to WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event.”
