If you watched the MLB All-Star Game you’ve had a chance to FOX’s new No. 1 NFL girl, Erin Andrews, but according Andrews she had no idea that anything was going on. 

“I don’t think anyone really knew that announcement was coming out…so it was a shock to me when I got to Minnesota and I woke up from my red-eye, I had no idea any of that was happening,” she said.

Monday it was announced that Erin Andrews would replace 19-year sideline vet, Pam Oliver on NFL on Fox’s No. 1 team with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Oliver will be moved to the No. 2 team for her 20th year and then phased out to transition into a new role. 

“I have huge shoes to fill here. I’m not ignoring that at all and in fact that’s going to challenge me and make me want to be better than I was before. She set the standard, she is a trailblazer.”

 

“She’s the first person to ask me if I’m OK and if I need anything,” she added later. “And that’s going to make my job 15 times more difficult just because I know, I’m going to have to try to live up to that and that’s not easy at all. I can’t thank her enough for being such a wonderful example for me.”
