Erin Andrews on Move to Fox Sports: ‘It Was Not Time For Me to Hang it Up’

A week after joining Fox Sports from ESPN, Erin Andrews dropped in on corporate cousin Fox News for an interview with Shepard Smith who’s anchoring from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City home of tomorrow’s Major League Baseball All Star game, on Fox.

Smith began the segment joking,”ESPN has gone out of business and we have decided to hire Erin Andrews.” He clarified that a bit later: “ESPN isn’t really closed. They still have 50,000 channels and want all of your money.” (Of course, Fox News will gladly take your money too).

As for her departure from ESPN, Andrews says, “I was there eight years and it was a difficult decision to make. But I am someone who wants to grow and learn and it is not time for me to hang it up.”

“It’s only been my first week, but I love it. It’s kind of different to be the new girl. I find myself being a little shy and reserved which will wear off fast I am sure.”
