Is Erin Andrews Married or in Any Relationship? How Much Does She Make as a Sportscaster

Sports is a lucrative and entertaining aspect of human life. While the fun that comes with such activities, for example, football, basketball, and several others, are inherent to them, their entertainment value is further boosted by quality visuals and broadcasting. This role is eminently fulfilled by talented sportscasters and analysts, who deploy their talents in making each game an enjoyable experience, and one of them is Erin Andrews. Andrews began her career with the dawn of a new millennium in 2000 and has covered sports for several major networks. She has become one of America’s notable names in sports broadcasting. She has also made a credible impact in an industry traditionally dominated by men.

Erin Andrews’ Early Life & Educational Background

Erin Andrews was born on the 4th of May, 1978, in Lewiston, Maine, to Steven Andrews and Paula Andrews. She was born into a modest family to a mother and a father who were a school teacher and a TV journalist, respectively. Due to the nature of her father’s job as a journalist, Erin Andrews spent time relocating to different cities, including San Antonio, Texas, and Valrico, Florida, while she was growing up.

At Florida, Erin began to have some stability and attended Bloomingdale High School. She was a member of the school’s student government body and dance team. She was also a member of the National Honor Society. After high school, Erin Andrews attended the University of Florida, earning a degree in Telecommunication, and continued to be a part of the dance team with Florida Gators Dazzlers.

Rising to the Top Echelons of Sportscasting

Following graduation from college in 2000, Erin Andrews, whose father is an award-winning journalist of repute, began her journalism career, choosing to focus on her interest, sports. She began working for Fox Sports Florida as a freelance reporter, covering several local teams like Tampa Bay Lightning. After two years as a freelance reporter, she was employed by Turner South network as a studio host and reporter, during which she covered Atlanta-based sports teams like the Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Hawks.

In April 2004, Erin Andrews joined ESPN and worked for the premier sports network for eight years till 2012. During her time at ESPN, Andrews grew in popularity as she appeared on shows like ESPN College Football Thursday Primetime, ESPN College GameDay, and several others. Upon leaving ESPN in 2012, Erin joined Fox Sports and has remained with the network to date. She has worked on shows like Fox NFL Sunday, Fox College Football, and has covered several major American sports events.

Her Paychecks and Earnings from Dancing with the Stars

One would not ordinarily expect Andrews to come right out and reveal what she makes as a sideline reporter for Fox, but credible sources estimate that she earns as much as $2 million per annum. The major share of this amount comes from her monthly paychecks from Fox. Another contributory source is her other TV gigs. Andrews has channeled her charismatic personality to host several events, including the 2015/2016 edition of the CMT Music Awards.

The Fox reporter also has a standing gig as the co-host of the popular dance show, Dancing with the Stars. Andrews has been co-hosting the show alongside regular host, Tom Bergeron, since 2014 till date. Even though it is not known exactly how much she makes on the show, her co-host, Tom, makes as much as $1.6 million each year. It is, therefore, reasonable to assume that she will be earning something in that region as well.

Endorsement Deals and Law Suits

Away from TV, another lucrative source of income for Andrews is endorsement deals. She has been tapped to serve as an ambassador for several brands, including sports apparel manufacturer, Reebok, StubHub, Kraft Foods, CoverGirl, OrangeTheory Fitness, and Fanatics. Even though most of these campaigns are socially-oriented, for instance, her partnership with StubHub and CoverGirl was aimed at encouraging women’s participation in sports, there is no doubt that Andrews must have been handsomely rewarded for her time.

Erin Andrews also owes a large part of her wealth to a lawsuit. During her days at ESPN, specifically the year 2008, the reporter was the victim of persistent stalking by a man named Michael David Barret. Barret followed her to the hotel, where she lodged during assignments and filmed her through the peepholes. He later released one of those videos, in which she was completely nude, in July 2009. The video predictably devastated Andrews and the FBI commenced an investigation. They later apprehended Barrett, and he was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

Following his conviction, Andrews brought a suit, seeking a $75 million compensation from Barret, as well as the management of the hotels where the voyeurism took place. She alleged that the hotel bore a measure of responsibility as it was their staff who disclosed her room number to her stalker. The hotel, Nashville Marriott, denied these claims, but the jury agreed with Andrews at the end of the day. They, therefore, awarded her $55 million in March 2016. Through this settlement, as well as her other career earnings, Andrews has been able to build up an estimated net worth of $22 million.

Erin Andrews Is Married To A Pro Athlete

Erin’s status as one of the sexiest sportscasters in America has made her a highly sought-after lady. Many men wish to be her romantic partner, but it is Jarret Stoll that has earned this honor. For those who do not know him, Stoll is a former professional ice hockey player from Canada. He spent 14 years as a pro, during which he played for various NHL teams, including the New York Rangers, Minnesota Wild, and Los Angeles Kings. He won several trophies in the course of his career, including the NHL’s highest trophy, the Stanley Cup, twice.

Andrews and Stoll first commenced their relationship in December 2012, and their love grew in leaps and bounds. Their joy was, however, soured after the sportscaster was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September 2016. The couple pulled together and Erin underwent two surgeries and was pronounced cancer-free. The whole episode served to bring the couple together, and they got engaged in December 2016. They eventually got married on the 24th of June, 2017. Erin and her husband have been living happily together since then and have adopted a dog named Howard.

The couple also plans on expanding their family in the nearest future. During Erin’s cancer treatments, the couple was warned that infertility was a possible side effect. They, therefore, had some eggs frozen and now have dual options of conception, IVF, or natural method. It seems as if the couple has utilized one of these methods. In April 2020, Erin stoked pregnancy rumors after she tagged her husband in a hilarious father-daughter dance post with the caption “goals for you?” This post set her fans abuzz as many concluded that she must be alluding to pregnancy. Erin has yet to confirm this, but we do wish the couple all the best.
