Yesterday we reported that ESPN sideline reporter Jenn Brown had gone on Twitter and announced her glee about getting the assignment to cover the College World Series, a gig that had long been the province of ESPN personality Erin Andrews.
“Guess who’s working the sidelines for the College World Series in Omaha?!? I am super psyched and can’t wait!!” Brown wrote.
If people suspected Andrews was getting snubbed by the Bristol brass in lieu of a fresher face, well, Andrews paints a different picture, saying on Twitter “Thx for all the tweets about CWS & the Bee…yes, everything is OK..It was time for me to pull back and have down time before (college football) and (college basketball).”
In reply to a question from a follower, she said of the College World Series, “sorry..been doing it for 8 yrs..time for a change..”
As Darren Rovell of CNBC reported yesterday, Rob Stone is replacing Andrews for next week’s Scripps National Spelling Bee.
