You have seen the last of Erin Andrews at ESPN, and she is now officially headed to Fox Sports instead. She officially became done with the WWL Friday as they let it be known today via tweet from their PR department. As you would expect for anything involving “Erin Pageviews” that tweeted was RTd thousands of times.

And now Fox Sports itself has let the new home of EA be known.

“Opportunities to add someone of Erin Andrews’ caliber don’t come along often and we’re thrilled to welcome her back to the FOX Sports family,” said Eric Shanks, executive producer, co-president and COO, FOX Sports Media Group. “Erin is one of the hardest-working, most-respected individuals in sports television and we expect her to have an immediate impact. In addition to having her anchor our new college football show and studio coverage, we expect her to be a big contributor to our MLB and NFL coverage as well as other major events.”

According to Sports Business Journal Daily:

ESPN VP/Communications Mike Soltys said that a tweet that came out early yesterday saying Andrews was leaving the net was “a fake.” He said, “She’s still under contract and we hope to renew her.” USA TODAY’s Michael Hiestand notes Andrews is “among several prominent ESPN on-air staffers, including Scott Van Pelt and Michelle Beadle, whose ESPN deals are up” (USA TODAY, 3/13).
