Erin Andrews Leaves ESPN For Fox Sports Studio Show: [ send to a friend ]
Erin Andrews is leaving ESPN after eight years at the cable network.
"She did great work for us and we made an aggressive offer to keep her," says ESPN's Vice President of Communications Josh Krulewitz. "We wish her the best on her next chapter."
Andrews' contract expired this past weekend and the female sportscaster didn't waste any time as she announced she was joining Fox Sports on Sunday.
"It is official. I'm going to Fox Sports," Andrews said on Sunday. "An incredible opportunity for me and cannot wait to start! CFB kickoff is two months from today!"
She will host a new half-hour college football show in the fall and cover various other sports programs for the channel.
"Opportunities to add someone of Erin Andrews' caliber don't come along often and we're thrilled to welcome her back to the FOX Sports family," says Fox Sports' Eric Shanks.
"Erin is one of the hardest-working, most-respected individuals in sports television and we expect her to have an immediate impact. In addition to having her anchor our new college football show and studio coverage, we expect her to be a big contributor to our MLB and NFL coverage as well as other major events."
Andrews had done side-line reporting and was a co-host of College GameDay at ESPN.
However, the 34-year-old made world headlines after being videotaped nude through the peephole of her hotel room.
