In a press release Monday, ESPN announced that its two-time Emmy Award-winning program, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot, will expand to three hours – with the first hour being aired exclusively on ESPNU – and feature a new personality, former Florida Gators dazzler Erin Andrews.

The show will maintain Chris Fowler as its host and Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard as its analysts, while adding Andrews to the team. She will anchor “several segments during the first hour on ESPNU, and contributing reports, interviews and features during the ESPN portion of the show,” according to the release.

“As part of her role, Andrews will also work as the sideline reporter on the game from which College GameDay originates from, if the game is on an ESPN network (ESPN, ABC, ESPN2, etc.). In addition to her responsibilities across ESPN platforms, Andrews will provide select reports on ABC’s Good Morning America throughout the year.”

In related news… former Florida quarterback Jesse Palmer will continue as an analyst on ESPN’s College Football Primetime and College Football Live as well as during Saturday pregame, halftime and postgame studio segments on ABC.

Also in related news… former Gators softball player Jenn Brown will join Primetime as a sideline reporter during its Thursday games.

    Good for Erin. She is one of the few women I can stand to listen to in sports reporting. She presents herself very well- very knowledgeable and confident. And she’s very easy on the eyes!

    I like Jesse Palmer as an analyst as well.
