After hearing the infamous "You're Fired" from Donald Trump high atop Trump Towers in New York City, Philadelphia attorney Erin Elmore is now the new in-arena host for all Philadelphia Flyers hockey games at Wachovia Center. She joins former Y100 on-air personality and NBC reporter Bret Hamilton and anthem singer Lauren Hart in providing off-ice entertainment during stoppages of play at Wachovia Center.
"We feel that Lauren, Erin and Bret each bring their own unique personalities and experience to our home games and provide great entertainment for all our fans," said Vice President of Communications and Marketing, Shawn Tilger.
Elmore, 27, is a cum laude graduate of the University of Miami with a dual degree in Broadcasting and Political Science and a graduate of Villanova University School of Law. She also spends time in front of the camera. As an entertainment reporter and a general assignment reporter for NBC-12 in Jacksonville, FL, Elmore has interviewed celebrities, reviewed blockbuster movies and covered local events. Additionally, Erin works as a professional model, appearing in magazines, commercials, print advertisements, billboards, while also participating in numerous fashion shows. Elmore currently resides in Center City, Philadelphia.
Hamilton, who hails from Baltimore, MD, and currently resides in Philadelphia, has been working in the entertainment industry since he was 15-years old. Hamilton has appeared in numerous television commercials and had small roles in movies such as "Up Close And Personal," "Philadelphia" and Twelve Monkeys." He made the transition from radio to TV including a regular segment on the NBC 10! Show's "Take This Job." Hamilton graduated from the University of Delaware.
Hart, daughter of legendary "Voice Of The Flyers" the late Gene Hart, and co-host of the NBC 10! Show, is a recording artist and has her own label called "Gypsy Girl," under which she has recorded two CD's - "Painted Bride" and "Girl Keeps On." Hart and her band have opened for such artists as Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, Train, Matthew Sweet, 10,000 Maniacs and Lisa Loeb. Hart has been singing the National Anthem in front of Flyers home crowds for the past eight years.
Each host will interact with fans conducting interviews, live reports from the Cingular Pavilion and fun in-game promotions such as Comcast On Demand's "You Call The Play."
