Erin Andrews hired by Fox Sports after ESPN contract expires
It was reported on July 1, 2012 that Erin Andrews is moving to Fox Sports.
Fox Sports hired the former ESPN personality to host a new 30-minute prime-time college football studio show that will premiere on Sept. 1 followed by coverage of Hawaii at USC, NFL and MLB.
Andrews said it was a difficult move but right move as it’s allowing her to do so many things that she wouldn’t be been able to do at ESPN. Andrews said that she always wanted to work in the NFL
Fox Sports executives met with Andrews in Los Angeles earlier week to discuss a role in Fox’s college football coverage. Andrews’ agents at IMG informed ESPN on Friday that she would not be returning to the network following the expiration of her contract at the end of June. ESPN released a statement that Erin Andrews is leaving ESPN . The statement added that she did great work for ESPN and they made an aggressive offer to keep her. They wished her the best on her next chapter.
Andrews said that ESPN was very aggressive in trying to keep her, but there was not one job at the network that would have convinced her to stay. She thought ESPN was wonderful.
