Sportscaster Erin Andrews has decided to move on from her position at ESPN.

Mike Humes, a publicist from the network, announced the news via Twitter. 

According to SI.com’s Richard Deitsch, Fox is “aggressively pursuing” Andrews to add her to its team of college football reporters. Deitsch notes that Fox has not made an official comment about the situation. 

Andrews graduated from the University of Florida in 2000 with a degree in telecommunications. She started with ESPN in May of 2004, covering hockey games. The next year, she landed her first post as a sideline reporter for college football games and found her niche, as noted on her ESPN Media Zone profile

Between 2005 and 2010 she was featured on ESPN College Football Thursday Primetime and also covered Major League Baseball. 

For the 2010 college football season, she took over as a host during the first hour of College GameDay and was a reporter for the entire three-hour show.

During her time at ESPN, she has covered a little bit of everything. Andrews has reported from both the College and Little League World Series, NCAA basketball, the Great Outdoor Games and even the Scripps National Spelling Bee. 

She also appeared on ABC’s college football broadcasts and was a contestant on the networks’ popular show, Dancing with the Stars, in 2010. 

The 34-year-old is a multi-talented reporter and host who has risen quickly through the ranks at ESPN.

Her career has been on the rise since her arrival at the sports media giant, and she appears to be continuing that trend by moving on to more lucrative opportunities at another network.
