NEW YORK -- Erin Andrews will host Fox's new college football pregame show.

Two days after ESPN said the broadcaster was leaving after eight years, Fox officially announced her hiring Sunday. Andrews also will contribute to the network's NFL and Major League Baseball coverage among other sports.

The main Fox network will start its first regular-season college football package this fall. The 30-minute pregame show will premiere Sept. 1.

The popular Andrews has over 1.3 million Twitter followers. She calls the new job a "once in a lifetime opportunity."

Fox Sports Media Group Co-President Eric Shanks calls Andrews "one of the hardest-working, most-respected individuals in sports television."
