Official: Erin Andrews Joins Fox Sports


As expected, Erin Andrews has landed at Fox Sports after the announcement Friday that she was leaving ESPN at the conclusion of her contract in June.

Andrews will host a new primetime college football pregame show for Fox Sports as well as contributing to the network's NFL and MLB coverage and other marquee sports properties.

The 30-minute pregame show will originate live each week form the Fox Network Center in Los Angeles leading into Fox's first-ever regular-season broadcast college football package, which kicks off on Sept. 1 with Hawaii vs. USC.

Andrews had been a fixture at ESPN since 2004, most recently hosting the first hour of College Game Day on ESPNU and a sideline reporter for college football and basketball games. Her new multiyear deal with Fox Sports is a homecoming of sorts; she got her start as a sports reporter at Fox Sports Florida in 2000.

"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" said Eric Shanks, executive producer, co-president and COO, Fox Sports Media Group. "Erin is one of the hardest-working, most respected individuals in sports television and we expect her to have an immediate impact."
