Impact is in makeover mode for the transition to TNA in 2024. Part of the updated presentation will be a new full-time ring announcer. TNA announced the change from David Penzer to Jade Chung.
Chung joined Impact in May 2023 as the pre-show ring announcer. She is also the wife of Josh Alexander. Chung saw screen time on occasion when Alexander’s storylines called for it.
Penzer was classy in passing the mic to Chung.
If Penzer’s name sounds familiar to those out of the Impact loop, he was ring announcer for WCW from 1993 to 2001. Penzer’s time with Impact concluded at Final Resolution as they honored his contributions after the show. Penzer was touched by the ceremony to wrap up his second run with the company (2006-2010 and 2020-2023).
Update. I am still blown away by the incredible send off that @IMPACTWRESTLING gave me this weekend. Had no idea and it was the classiest thing I've ever seen in the wrestling biz. TY @ScottDAmore, I'll be rooting from the sidelines. Story to be told soon on a major platform https://t.co/5IS4akdMUt— David Penzer (@davidpenzer) December 14, 2023
The new era of TNA begins at Hard to Kill on January 13.
