Sportscaster Erin Andrews has earned widespread fame for her sideline coverage of collegiate and professional sports. She started her career as a freelance reporter with Fox Sports Florida and four years later joined ESPN, where she hosted the first hour of “College GameDay” on ESPNU and was a feature reporter for the full three-hour program. Andrews also served as a sideline reporter for college football and basketball games and added Major League Baseball field reporting to her responsibilities as well as the “Monday Night Baseball” telecast. Following eight years with ESPN, Andrews rejoined Fox Sports to cover major sporting events, including the Super Bowl, MLB’s All-Star Game and the World Series.
In 2010, Andrews bridged athletics with entertainment as a contestant on the celebrity dance competition “Dancing with the Stars,” and later became the show’s co-host. Andrews also expanded her television roles as a contributor for ABC’s “Good Morning America” and as a guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” She made her acting debut in the 2012 film “That’s My Boy.”
While at the University of Florida, Andrews was a member of the Florida Gators Dazzlers dance team. In 2007, she was honored with the University of Florida’s Outstanding Young Alumni Award.
