Erin Andrews is the true definition of a chip off the old block, but not only did she follow in the footsteps of her six-time Emmy-winning father to become a reporter, but she also chose to make her voice heard as a sports reporter, which is not common among women.
Growing up, Erin Andrews, who was a tomboy, was surrounded by sports. She loved watching NBA games and was a big fan of the Boston Celtics. In addition, female sportscasters such as Hannah Storm, Lesley Visser, Suzy Kolber, and Melissa Stark played an important role in her decision to do sportscasting.
Who is Erin Andrews? Her Age
Most people know Erin Andrews as a television personality, presenter, and sports reporter, but there is more to her than meets the eye. The American TV sensation was born on May 4, 1978, in Lewiston, Maine. Her mother Paula Andrews is a teacher, while her father Steven Andrews is a highly decorated television journalist.

After graduation, Fox Sports Florida gave her a job as a freelance reporter. From 2001 to 2004 she worked for the Sunshine Network and the Turner South Network as a studio presenter and reporter, reporting on the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Thrashers, and Atlanta Hawks.
In April 2004, Erin received one of her previous major assignments with ESPN when she covered the channel’s National Hockey Night. In 2012, she moved from ESPN to Fox Sports and became the first host of the Fox College Football studio show. She later replaced Pam Oliver as a reporter on the sidelines on the station’s NFL broadcast.
She also replaced Brooke Burke-Charvet and later became co-host of the TV dance show Dancing with the Stars on ABC. She has been on the show since 2014. A few years before she became co-host of the show, Erin Andrews was among the candidates for the tenth season, and alongside her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, she finished third.

In early 2017, even before their wedding, Erin revealed that she had already been diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2016. According to the sports reporter, she received the appropriate treatment, and two operations later, the doctors declared her cancer-free. Although Erin and her husband were in no hurry to marry and have children before their battle with cancer, the announcement led to some changes in their future plans.
