If you ask Erin Andrews about her place in the pantheon of women’s sportscasters, she will graciously credit the ladies who came before her. However, there’s no doubt that she is a trail blazer in sports broadcasting. She has gained notoriety and admiration for her work ethic, knowledge, and natural on-camera abilities. All of this, she says, is part of being an “unapologetically strong woman.” Recently, Lori Bizzoco had the chance to chat with Erin about her new career path, touting her father’s influence as a main proponent of pushing her as far as she’s come.
