VIDEO: Erin Andrews Dishes About Her New Gig at Fox Sports, Why She Left ESPN, and How Excited She Is to Cover the 2012 MLB All-Star Game
Shepard Smith is reporting from Kansas City, the home of the 2012 MLB All-Star Game – airing Tuesday. Longtime ESPN personality Erin Andrews is kicking off her new role with Fox Sports at the game.
Andrews spoke to Shep about why she left ESPN, saying, “I was there for eight years and it was a very difficult decision to make, but you know what? I’m someone that I just want to grow and I still want to learn. It’s not time for me to hang it up and I just want to get better.”
She went on to say, “Fox is offering opportunities like to be here [at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game] Tuesday night, and they’re offering me an opportunity to host this college football show and NFL as well … I get to join those boys on the pregame show and also do some NFL sidelines and also work baseball post-games. So, how could you say no to that?”
Andrews said she has found herself a little shy and reserved since she’s changed jobs, but said she’s sure that will wear off quickly.
