Erin Andrews is moving to Fox Sports. SI.com has learned the network hired the former ESPN personality to host a new 30-minute prime-time college football studio show, which premieres Sept. 1 before Fox Sports’ coverage of Hawaii at USC. Andrews will also have other assignments at Fox Sports, including a role in its NFL and MLB coverage.
Fox 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, and will air a minimum of eight regular-season football games on Fox Sports, at least four in prime time. Last year, Fox Sports and the Big 12 reached a 13-year agreement for exclusive cable rights to 40 football games per season. Fox will air the Pac-12 championship game on Nov. 30
