Erin Andrews Leaves ESPN, What's Next For Her?
It appears the romance between the 34-year-old Dancing with the Stars alumnus and her employer, ESPN, is gone.
And Erin Andrews may be running into the arms of another competitor.
ESPN PR guy Mike Humes said what PR guys say in this hurriedly-written tweet: "She did great work for us & we made aggressive offer to keep her. Wish her best on her next chapter."
Unlike Ann Curry, Andrews wasn't kicked to the curb with oodles of time left on her contract. In fact, her contract was coming up July 1.
And the rumors have been flying for months that Andrews was being courted by Fox Sports.
If Andrews were to find much love with Fox Sports, it would make sense.
After all, Andrews is hugely popular -- and not completely as a pair of legs and boobs walking the sidelines. She can hold her own in interviews.
The timing also fits.
SI reports Fox has "invested heavily in college football over the last 24 months, including entering a 12-year agreement with the Pac-12 this year covering broadcast, national and local cable, and digital assets."
Hmmm… sounds like a smart investment… Andrews, I mean. Maybe it's a match made in sports media money-making heaven?
