Erin Andrews may be happy for her former co-workers, but it makes her incredibly sad that they are gone.
After years of working together with Troy Aikman and Joe Buck, Andrews had to watch as they both took jobs at her old stomping grounds at ESPN. Unfortunately for Andrews, that means she won’t be able toi work alongside the two legends for the forseeable future.
While talking about Joe and Troy leaving for ESPN, she got emotional recounting the memories and things they have shared with each other over the years.
“They became my brothers and really became my best friends,” she said, fighting through tears. “I’m sad, but I’m so happy for them.”
“Every Thanksgiving I am with them,” she said. You know, the past two Christmases I have been with them. You are on their planes, you are at their house. They’ve listened to my fertility issues and they knew about my cancer issues. I’ve listened to them talking about their daughters or, you now, having their babies…They literally become your family.”
Andrews will remain with Fox for the 2022 season.
