Erin Andrews, who appeared on June 11 episode of Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly is among the best-known sports broadcasters thanks to her high visibility. She seems to be unavoidable, both as the co-host of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and Fox Sports.
The 39-year-old Maine native currently works as a Fox Sports NFL sideline reporter, which meant she covered Super Bowl LI earlier this year. Although she has been at Fox Sports since 2012, she remains a member of the Disney family thanks to DWTS. She worked at ESPN from 2004 to 2012.
Here’s what you need to know about Andrews’ net worth.
1. Andrews Has an Estimated Net Worth of $20 Million
Andrews has an estimated net worth of $20 million, Celebrity Net Worth estimates. The site notes that she earns an estimated $2 million a year.
Andrews was born in Lewiston, Maine to Paula and Steve Andrews. Steve Andrews is a television journalist who has won seven Emmys and earned the Investigative Reporters and Editors Association Medal. He currently works for WFLA-TV in Tampa.
Andrews moved around during her childhood, first to San Antonio when she was five years old. Just 18 months later, the family moved to Florida.
After attending high school in Valrico, Florida, Andrews went to the University of Florida, where she earned a B.A. in Telecommunications in 2000. She got her professional start at Fox Sports Florida. She then moved to the Turner South Network to cover Atlanta teams. In 2004, ESPN hired her. Fox Sports hired her in 2012.
2. Andrews Won a $55 Million Lawsuit Against Stalker Michael Barrett, but She Won’t Get All That
In 2008, Andrews’ life was forever changed when stalker Michael David Barrett filmed her through peepholes at the Nashville Marriott and the Radisson Airport Hotel in Milwaukee. One of the videos was leaked to the public and became an early viral video. Barrett was arrested in 2009 and sentenced to two years and six months in prison. He finished serving his sentence in 2012.
That was just the end of one part of the case, since Andrews also filed a civil lawsuit against the Nashville Marriott and Barrett in October 2015. In March 2016, Andrews was awarded $55 million.
However, it’s likely that Andrews will never see much of that. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Barett is supposed to pay $28 million of that, but Barrett doesn’t have that kind of money. She also likely won’t get the full $27 million from the Nashville hotel. If she settles for $20 million with the hotel, she could have to pay another $1 million in legal fees. Then, she’ll have to pay the IRS, so she might end up with $10 million out of the $55 million settlement.
In April 2016, The Tennessean reported that Andrews and the defendants reached a confidential settlement.
3. Andrews Signed a Contract Extension With Fox Sports in 2016
Andrews signed an ew contract with Fox Sports in July 2016, Sports Illustrated reported at the time. As part of the deal though, she completely dropped MLB coverage.
When she first signed with fox Sports in July 2012, Andrews was hired to cover the NFL, NASCAR, MLB postseason and was given her own college football show, Fox College Saturday. After the college football show struggled in the ratings, Fox decided to make hr the sideline reporter for Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. She also worked with Buck on MLB postseason, but she’s moving on. From now on, Andrews only works on NFL coverage for Fox.
“We are thrilled that Erin will continue as our lead sideline reporter on the NFL on FOX’s ‘A-Team’ including our upcoming coverage of Super Bowl LI,” John Entz, the network’s president of production, told Sports Illustrated. “We appreciate Erin’s great contributions to our MLB coverage. With her commitments beyond Fox Sports, we fully support Erin’s decision to focus her role here at FOX on the NFL.”
4. Andrews Lives in Los Angeles Full-Time After Selling Her Atlanta Home for $355,000 in 2014
Andrews now lives in Los Angeles, which makes sense. DWTS is filmed there and her fiance, Stoll, spent much of his career in Los Angeles. (He retired after the 2015-16 season, which he split with the New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild.)
In February 2014, Celebuzz reported that Andrews sold her Atlanta home for $355,000. That was for a loss though, since she bought it in 2005 for $388,500.
The home has four bedrooms and thee bathrooms.
5. Husband Jarret Stoll Has an Estimated Net Worth of $16 Million
Stoll has an estimated net worth of $16 million, Celebrity Net Worth estimates.
The 34-year-old Stoll was born in Melville, Saskatchewan and was first drafted by the Calgary Flames in 2000. However, he couldn’t reach terms with the Flames and remained in the WHL. In 2002, the Edmonton Oilers drafted him and he joined the NHL this time. He made his NHL debut in the 2003-04 season. Before the 2008-09 season, he joined the Los Angeles Kings, where he won two Stanley Cup Finals.
Stoll ended his career with a one-year deal with the New York Rangers, worth an estimated $800,000. He ended up splitting the 2015-16 season with the Rangers and Wild though.
According to Stoll and Andrews’ wedding registry, they married on June 24.
