Charly Arnolt former WWE ring announcer to conduct backstage interview at UFC Vegas 58 cancel culture

UFC reporter Charly Arnolt leaves ESPN stating ‘Cancel culture doesn’t exist’ where she is going

Former WWE ring announcer turned roaming UFC reporter Charly Arnolt has left ESPN but will continue to work with the MMA promotion. The 35-year-old sports broadcaster and television personality cited cancel culture as one of the reasons for her fleeing to digital media company OutKick.

“It feels like I was a little bit stifled in the past,” said Arnolt who spent the past five years at ESPN and the last two years under a full-time contract. “People are too scared to speak up for the fear of being called politically incorrect. The idea of cancel culture, it doesn’t exist here. I speak freely.

“I have a lot of opinions that I haven’t been able to express, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Arnolt posted the announcement of her signing via Instagram

“MANIFESTED ✨ excited to officially announce I am joining the incredible team @outkickthecoverage @foxnews to host a daily weekday morning show which will launch this summer. Those who know me, know I have a lot of opinions and I’m thrilled to have a platform that embraces a diverse conversation on the issues that matter most in sports, culture and society. If you have any ideas for show topics or segments you’d like to see, please do not hesitate to shoot me a message! So pumped for this new adventure and want to thank all of you for your continued support 🙏🏽 (also, did you see that hair flip?!?!)

Cancel culture is a term for when those who are deemed to have acted or spoken in an unacceptable manner are ostracized, boycotted or shunned.

Arnolt, a former sports anchor at Fox59 in Indianapolis, will co-host a new show in development, which will be announced before the football season.

Outkick founder Clay Travis tweeted Monday that Arnolt “will be one of the hosts of our new Outkick morning show debuting this summer. She’s leaving @espn so she can actually say what she thinks. Awesome addition.” Travis, who founded OutKick in 2011 then sold it to Fox Corporation in 2021, has been an outspoken critic of ESPN.

Arnolt will work UFC Fight Night 222 this Saturday on ESPN+.
