ESPN just confirmed that the network's relationship with Erin Andrews is over. It looks like she's headed to Fox, per a Richard Deitsch column.
It's definitely a surprise. Of ESPN's big names who had contracts set to expire—Michelle Beadle and Scott Van Pelt were the others—she was pursued the least aggressively. Two weeks ago, we heard that she had had no takers.
And now her strange (and often dramatic) eight-year run with ESPN is over.
In a statement, a spokesman said: "Erin Andrews leaving ESPN. She did great work for us and we made an aggressive offer to keep her. We wish her the best on her next chapter."
