What’s going on out there in ESPN land nowadays?
First, it was Michelle Beadle leaving to go to NBC. Now, Erin Andrews has exited and could possibly land a “major role” with FOX Sports.
Erin Andrews’ contract with ESPN will expire this coming Saturday and will no longer be an employee for the network. ESPN public relations official, Mike Soltys had released the surprising news via Twitter. ESPN reportedly expressed great interest in Erin Andrews, but as of this coming Saturday, the beautiful American sportscaster and co-host of College GameDay will be moving on.
So where is Erin Andrews headed?
According to SI.com, courtesy of Richard Deitsch, FOX’s top executives had recently met with Erin Andrews via conference meeting discussing Andrews’ huge opportunity with the network, specifically pertaining to FOX’s college football coverage.
Nothing at the moment has been set in stone, although it seems to be utterly clear that the “face” ESPN once brought up will now be roaming the college sidelines with a rival network.
FOX supposedly has invested a tremendous amount of money covering college football. It makes sense to take the next step as a network and dominate the competition by landing one of the more popular sportscasters on television.
ESPN better wake up. Sage Steele could be next.
