Erin Andrews Heads To FOX To Host College Football Pregame Show
Erin Andrews will host FOX’s new college football pregame show. Two days after ESPN said the broadcaster was leaving after eight years, FOX officially announced her hiring. Andrews also will contribute to the network’s NFL and Major League Baseball coverage.
The main FOX network will start its first regular-season college football package this fall. The 30-minute pregame show will premiere Sept. 1. Fox plans to challenge ESPN in the primetime slot as the network this season carries its first-ever regular-season college football.
Andrews has over 1.3 million Twitter followers. She calls the new job a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”
In terms of who’ll replace Andrews in those reporting roles, one possibility is Jenn Brown,who was recently taken off ESPN’s Thursday night college football for an undisclosed reassignment.
ESPN’s second leading lady Michelle Beadle recently also left as she departed for NBC.
