Erin Andrews: A Timeline of Her Career and Court Case in Photos
Andrews, seen here in a #TBT pic she posted to Instagram, has repeatedly described herself as a "tomboy" growing up.
Andrews graduated from the University of Florida in 2000. While there, she was a member of the school's Gator Dazzler dance team.
FOLLOWING DAD'S FOOTSTEPS
From 2002 to 2004, Andrews covered Atlanta Braves sports for the Turner South network as a studio host and reporter. Her father Steven Andrews is a six-time Emmy Award winner.
ESPN ON THE SCENE
From Turner South, Andrews graduated to ESPN, where she started as a reporter for ESPN National Hockey Night before moving on to cover most of the network's sporting events, including the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
In 2008, Michael David Barrett filmed Andrews undressing through peepholes in the walls at the Nashville Marriott in Tennessee and the Radisson Airport Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Footage from the Marriott was posted online and quickly went viral. Andrews sued Barrett, the hotels and other entities for negligence and invasion of privacy.
DANCING WITH THE STARS
In 2010, Andrews partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy for the 10th season of ABC's hit Dancing with the Stars. The pair placed third out of 11 couples.
Andrews left ESPN to join Fox Sports, where she covers most of its major sporting events.
HOSTING WITH THE STARS
In 2014, Erin Andrews replaced Brooke Burke-Charvet as Tom Bergeron's co-host on Dancing with the Stars. Andrews was "right at home" in her new role, PEOPLE wrote at the time.
In a unanimous decision, Andrews was awarded $55 million dollars by a jury in her court case. Her lawyer, Bruce Broillet, claimed that Andrews had been "living a nightmare" in his closing argument.
