Erin Andrews Tweets About CWS Assignment Going to Jenn Brown

Yesterday we reported that ESPN sideline reporter Jenn Brown had gone on Twitter and announced her glee about getting the assignment to cover the College World Series, a gig that had long been the province of ESPN personality Erin Andrews.

“Guess who’s working the sidelines for the College World Series in Omaha?!? I am super psyched and can’t wait!!” Brown wrote.

If people suspected Andrews was getting snubbed by the Bristol brass in lieu of a fresher face, well, Andrews paints a different picture, saying on Twitter “Thx for all the tweets about CWS & the Bee…yes, everything is OK..It was time for me to pull back and have down time before (college football) and (college basketball).”

In reply to a question from a follower, she said of the College World Series, “sorry..been doing it for 8 yrs..time for a change..”

As Darren Rovell of CNBC reported yesterday, Rob Stone is replacing Andrews for next week’s Scripps National Spelling Bee.
