Fox replaces Oliver with Andrews on NFL sidelines

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Fox Sports says longtime reporter Pam Oliver is being "elevated" to senior correspondent and Erin Andrews will take her place as the sideline reporter for the network's top NFL announcing team.

Fox Sports president Eric Shanks says Oliver will continue to work as sideline reporter this season with the announcing team of Kevin Burkhardt and analyst John Lynch.

Oliver's role will expand to include interviews and commentary on other Fox and Fox Sports 1 shows, such as Fox Sports Live and Fox Sports 1 on 1 and sports beyond the NFL.

Oliver has worked 19 seasons as an NFL sideline reporter for Fox.

Andrews will take over as the sideline reporter for Fox's top NFL team of Joe Buck and analyst Troy Aikman.

NOOOO! Erin Andrews voice is like nails on a blackboard. I can't listen to her; when her commercials come on I have to change the channel or mute her. I'm sure she's a decent person, but her voice.....Yuck.

The most annoying woman in teevee - Erin Andrewws. I'll keep my remote handy during NFL games to mute her. Fox trying to appeal to the old farts who have a thing for blondes.

Andrews is just as annoying to us old farts as she is to you. She is there for the 20-50 year old age group not because of talent, but because of looks. The entire concept of sideline reporting adds nothing to a TV telecast. All it does is provide the viewers with another Barbie Doll reporter to ask the same redundant mindless questions.

did you hear Rosie's back? Erin can't hold a candle to that blow hard when it comes to annoying. Rosie is annoying with the sound off too!

Both of the women mentioned in this story, got the gig on their looks alone. The best female "analyst" working, is Doris Burke of ESPN's NBA games. Very good at her work, But, won't be google searched for her pics

Both of them are simply women, who never ever played one down of football, and who contribute absolutely nothing to the commentary on the game. If I wanted to see a sexy woman there are tons of porn websites I could go to. Who the hell needs a woman to "analyze" a football game? As if she is referencing some experieces she has had on the turf...other than getting grass stains on her back?

She was awful on DWTS this year and I think she will be awful on the sidelines. She is just not a good reporter and even worse spokesperson on DWTS. Just leave her off both shows. Yuck.
