Here's an interesting interview between CNBC's Donny Deutsch and ESPN's beloved, bright, bright shining star, Erin Andrews, found by The Sports Point, talking about both creepy commenters and how she broke into the business. In the snippet below, Andrews humbly admits she was "horrible" at TBS while she was supposed to be covering the Braves. She says she knew "nothing" about baseball at the time coming into the interview because she'd spent the whole year researching hockey as an FSN Tampa Bay Lightning correspondent. She knew none of the players names and was "the worst one" to be interviewed. So, how'd she get the job you ask?
Andrews says she looked right in the camera when the producer asked her why she should be hired and said "I'm the best you're going to find." According to what the producer told her, he was convinced by "how serious" she was when she said this. Interestingly enough, the clip begins with an introductory graphic letting the viewers know Ms. Andrews was voted the "Sexiest Sportscaster Alive" by Playboy. That's taking her seriously.
Lucky for everyone, she didn't let these little bumps in the road hold her down.
