Erin Andrews is a sportscaster, journalist, and television personality. She currently hosts FOX College Football for Fox Sports. Andrews was previously a co-host of College GameDay on ESPN and a contributor for Good Morning America on the ABC network.
Erin Andrews began working for ESPN in May 2004 as a reporter for ESPN National Hockey Night. She has also reported for the College World Series, Little League World Series, and Great Outdoor Games. Andrews began serving as a sideline reporter for ESPN College Football Saturday Primetime and Big Ten college basketball games, and in 2005 her job expanded to include ESPN College Football Thursday Primetime and Major League Baseball sideline reporting. From 2008 to 2010 she reported for ESPN’s and ABC’s live coverage of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
Andrews has been a guest on several talk shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
In 2010 Erin Andrews appeared on the tenth season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. They placed third out of 11 couples.
On January 13, 2011, it was announced that Andrews signed an endorsement deal with Reebok to promote its ZigTech brand. Two weeks prior, as a sideline reporter during the 2011 Rose Bowl, Andrews noted that Texas Christian University Horned Frogs football players were slipping on the turf because of the new Nike shoes they were wearing. Due to the conflict of interest, ESPN announced revised endorsement guidelines for its journalists that required Andrews to end her endorsement deal with Reebok by the end of 2011.
Erin Andrews hosted the first hour of ESPN’s College GameDay on ESPNU, and had been a Good Morning America correspondent on ABC since 2010, though she had not appeared on the show since covering the Oscars in February 2011. She left ESPN in June 2012.
On June 29, 2012, it was announced that Andrews was leaving ESPN to join Fox Sports. She was the first host of Fox College Football’s studio show with Eddie George and Joey Harrington joining her as analysts. Andrews is also a contributor on Fox NFL Sunday and serves as a field reporter for most major sporting events aired on Fox – such as the MLB All-Star Game, the World Series, the NFL Playoffs, and Daytona 500.
With the launch of Fox Sports 1 on August 17, 2013, Andrews took on several new roles. She became the host of Fox College Football Kickoff and Fox College Saturday, a direct competitor to ESPN College Gameday, which previews the weekend’s biggest college football games. Erin Andrews would also contribute to daily studio show Fox Football Daily.
Erin Andrews’ performance has been criticized since she joined Fox Sports’ MLB coverage in 2012. For example, Andrews during postseason trophy presentations, has been accused of showing an extreme lack of knowledge by reading off notes. During the trophy presentation at the end of the 2013 American League Championship Series, Andrews misidentified former Anaheim Angels owner and honorary American League president Jackie Autry as her late husband Gene.
In 2008 Michael David Barrett, 46, filmed Erin Andrews in her hotel room through peepholes at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Radisson Airport Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. On July 16, 2009, one of these videos, in which Andrews appeared totally nude, was posted online and quickly went viral. Barrett was arrested on October 2, 2009, by the FBI for interstate stalking, and pleaded guilty to the charges on December 15, 2009. A second tape of Andrews was discovered on Barrett’s computer by authorities in which she is nude in her room at the Radisson Airport Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This tape was never made public. On March 15, 2010, Barrett was sentenced to 30 months in prison, three years of probation, $5,000 in fines, and $7,366 in restitution. He served his sentence at the Seattle Community Corrections and was released on July 3, 2012.
