Erin Andrews is staying at ESPN.
The reporter/anchor tells USA Today’s Michael Hiestand that she has agreed to a new deal with the network. As part of the agreement, she will join the cast of "College GameDay" and be a regular contributor to ABC’s "Good Morning America."
"The biggest reason I wanted to stay was because they’d expand my role," Andrews tells Hiestand. "It’s time for me to try new things. … The hosting stuff is what I’m really looking forward to."
She plans to devote some of her "GMA" time to stories about crimes against women, Hiestand reports. Andrews herself was the victim of a stalker who surreptitiously videotaped her.
Andrews’ future at the network was in some doubt, especially after her stint on ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars." She tells Hiestand she received "lots of offers to work in entertainment" while negotiating a new deal with ESPN.
