LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - ESPN fan favorite reporter Erin Andrews has signed a new multi-year deal with the sports cable channel.

Andrews will join the network's new College GameDay lineup, contributing reports during the ESPN portion of the show, in addition to working as a sideline reporter. Andrews will also become a regular contributor to ABC's "Good Morning America."

"I am very pleased and excited about my new role with the network and I'm especially looking forward to the new opportunities presented with 'College GameDay' and 'Good Morning America'," Andrews said.

Andrews started with ESPN in 2004, covering the NHL's Stanley Cup Finals. Her job expanded in 2005 to include MLB reporting. Earlier this year she was a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

Ugh, go away Erin Andrews!!! Go to Good Morning America or E! or something like that, leave sports along. Watching you flirt and melt down like a 13 year old girl around Tim Tebow was embarrassing, and i’m sure he’s not the only one.

What on earth could Erin possibly find to say for ONE HOUR. She does NOT have a LOT to say during a telecast as it is. She CANNOT get me up to watch her ONE HOUR EARLIER when JENN BROWN is sooo much hotter and nicer than she!!!!! Besides, interviews with MAXI (on DWTS) and then ripping off his shirt on the college football gameday show WOULD NOT bring in more college football fans. I saw ENOUGH of her being clutched by MAXI on that program to last me a while. Unfortunately, she may end up interviewing J-Lo to fill the time on Saturday Mornings discussing among other things, …”How to throw a Super Bowl Party with Puff”….
