ABC and ESPN keep dancing with Erin Andrews

Erin ESPN reporter and “Dancing With the Stars” competitor Erin Andrews has signed a new deal that will give her new duties both for ESPN and ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Andrews will anchor segments on the first hour of an expanded “College GameDay,” ESPN’s college football pregame fixture that the network said will increase from two to three hours this fall. That first hour will air on sibling network ESPNU starting at 6 a.m. Pacific on September 4, with the next two hours remaining on ESPN. Andrews will contribute reports, interviews and features to the remaining hours, than serve as sideline reporter for the day’s main game.

In its 24th season, “College GameDay” reached a peak in 2009 by averaging 2.0 million viewers, 12% more than in 2008.

Andrews’ “Good Morning America” duties will include periodic reports for the weekday morning show. While several of her reports will be on the lighter side, Andrews — who last year was the victim in a stalking case – told Michael Hiestand of USA Today that she will not be limited to fluff.

“With what I’ve been through, I want to talk to women who are victims,” Andrews said. “And people haven’t seen I can have a serious tone. We feel it’s important to start off with serious issues so people take me seriously.”

ESPN also announced that Chris Fowler and John Saunders have each taken on additional duties hosting weekday series “College Football Live.”
