Called “the sideline siren” by The New York Post, Erin Andrews is a popular reporter for the American sports network ESPN. Andrews graduated from the University of Florida in 2000 with a degree in telecommunications. She put her degree right to work at Fox Sports Florida South, where she worked as a freelancer in 2000-01. She parlayed that experience into jobs with the Sunshine Network (2001-02) and then Turner Sports, where she covered the Atlanta Thrashers and Atlanta Hawks from 2002-04. Andrews made the jump to ESPN in 2004, where she became known for sideline reporting from college football and basketball games. Lanky and blonde, though a self-described “nerd,” Andrews mixed cheerful sports savvy with hubba-hubba good looks that made her extremely popular with the network’s young male viewers. She was much in the news in July of 2009, when an illicit “peephole” video taken in her hotel room appeared on the Internet. Andrews announced through lawyers that the video was indeed of her and was taken without her knowledge, and promised legal action if the perpetrator was found.
