Others said it, but I didn't believe it until my first time to view the show tonight. She just said "...no Stanford students will be in class in the morning ..." I guess so considering it would be Sunday morning.
Anchoring is definitely not her strong point.
Haha i heard that as well. I feel sorry for her, she should have never left ESPN
At least she still looks nice!!
They wouldn't give her the desk job. Fox would cause they are trying to get into college football, I just don't like when Fox does college
There's a reason they wouldn't give her a desk job, she's not cut out for it at all
Yep that was a silly statement she made....just not as good on Fox Sports
My wife and I were laughing about the school comment as well. What in the world was she thinking?
She looks awkward and uncomfortable behind the desk.....but hot as always!
Ya, ESPN tried putting her behind a desk a couple of times, but had bad results. They eventually decided that her brand was at its ceiling, so she bailed for Fox. Thing is, she's a polished speaker, just not a fluid one. Unfortunately, that's probably not something she can learn.
Maybe she is just trying too hard. Like someone else said, she doesn't look comfortable behind the desk. Maybe that only comes with more experience. But, Fox ratings will suffer.
I thought the broadcast as a whole was a flop. Great game, bad presentation.
They need to replace Eddie George and Joey Harrington then worry about Erin.
agreed. well said.
it was a disaster.
The only good thing about Fox is Gus Johnson
Erin ain't gonna stay behind that desk very long, move her somewhere else
Exactly, and struggled doing Good Morning America as well. ESPN moved on to Samantha Steele who is better in all facets, including the studio, not to mention cheaper.

When I turn on a game and hear Gus Johnson I immediately either turn it or mute the tv. The whole FOX broadcast is just terrible.
That's the thing, ESPN basically told her "look, do interviews, be pretty, and you'll have a good career doing what you're doing, but we're done promoting you as a product cuz you can't anchor." Andrews apparently had it in her head that she deserved more money and more airtime.
And, fwiw, I have been very impressed with Steele. She has a great personality and speaks very well. Reminds me of some of Fox's Miss America anchors. She may end up a superstar.
She was horrible at ESPN. She is not that hot. Especially in comparison to the females out there. She is just another sideline reporter. You should have seen her on ABC's morning show. Anyway, she knows nothing about sports, but they pump it like she does. I know from first hand interactions. Like I said for years, get someone who is really hot and feed her the same info. Make up a back-story, make her seem like a lifelong fan, and stop paying Andrews. I am glad they did it.

Thank you. She isnt that hot. Go back a few years and compare her to Jill Arrington. Erin is attractive but not hot and no where as attractive as Jill Arrington. Plus, being attractive is not an excuse to be unqualified at your job.
Steele will look good because it does not take much to mold someone into that job. I think Jenn Brown will get a look too. ESPN is about not having stars. They already have Chris "You're With Me Leather" Berman. That is a mistake some ESPN executives regret.
You get it. Look past some brief glances. She struggled a lot. Even at being a sideline reporter. Her dad is a reporter and they play it like it is a family tradition. Better females to be found, cheaper, easier to control. It was a simple choice.
