Erin Andrews Critic Causes Major Losses For Entercom

By: Lacy Langley - August 2, 2014

Erin Andrews has caught some serious flack from many different directions after the announcement that she will be taking over Pam Oliver’s spot on the sidelines with Fox Sports.

The move proved to be a controversial one, opening those in charge of the switch to widespread speculation.

In a scathing blog post, Jeff Pearlman wrote of Pam Oliver,

“…she [Oliver] also has never, ever, ever used the medium to turn herself into a nonsense-endorsing celebrity spokesperson for dietary supplements and the like. In pro athlete translation, Erin Andrews would be, oh, Mark Sanchez; Pam Oliver is Peyton Manning.”

He continued of the Erin Andrews switch, “However, Pam Oliver is also 53. And African-American. She isn’t white and blonde and perky. These days, that’s what sideline reporters almost always are—blonde and perky. They’re eye candy for the neanderthals who need eye candy.”

This seems to be the general feeling on the Erin Andrews and Pam Oliver Switch. However, criticism of Andrews came to a climax with WEEI’s Kirk Minihane’s comments. They went like this:

“I hate her! What a gutless b!*ch! Go away. Drop dead. I mean, seriously what the hell is wrong with her? First of all, follow-up. Second of all, the guy admitted he did it. He admitted he told reporters he threw a couple of pipe bombs. How is that social media’s fault? I hate her. Don’t you love social media? Yeah…social media is — shut up. shut up. i’m sure she’s a nice person, but she’s…she’s probably a b!*ch. I hate her.”

Now, Fox is pulling all advertising from WEEI and its parent company Entercom because Fox execs weren’t impressed with Minihane’s so-called apology to Erin Andrews.

This serious blow will effect over 100 radio stations, but it did finally generate a response from the hereto silent Entercom.

“Kirk Minihane’s statements regarding Erin Andrews were offensive and deplorable,” they said. “It is clear by the response from our listeners, advertisers, and employees that Kirk’s efforts to apologize and make this right have been insufficient and ambiguous. We want to make it unequivocally clear that his comments were unacceptable and do not reflect Entercom’s values and standards.”

What do you think? Better late than never or too little too late?

    I like E A. and she knows a lot about football. Oliver = dull.

  • davewoo

    If Pam Oliver was a white woman, nobody would say a thing.

    • blondie

      There wouldn’t be anything to talk about if she were a white woman because she’d still have her job.

      • davewoo

        Not true, but you racists make up your happy stories. Makes you feel warm inside.

      • NoH8

        This is not racism….it’s agism. Pam Oliver is 53…EA is 36. As has been said, they are both excellent sideline reporters and do their homework.

        • eclipse vader

          ok, so she is old. young ppl watch football and erin is attractive. she is a good reproter. her only crime is she is white and pretty and replacing an old black woman.

      • stonebreaker

        at least pam never had some guy try to take nude pics of her thru a door porthole.

        • http://Aol.com Mbakey

          What’s that got to do with anything , moron

        • rick hilde

          That is just STUPID!!

        • eclipse vader

          eww i hope not….i really hope not

        • joe s

          Like Erin should be responsible for a pervert?

      • shane hibbs sr

        actually, she has been promoted to senior correspondent. So she actually has a better job now. Is there still a problem blondie?

      • joe s

        No she wouldn’t. Pam Oliver probably kept the job longer becasue of her color. Erin will not have it past the age of 45

    • Wes

      yep

    • shane hibbs sr

      correct

    • eclipse vader

      my thoughts exactly

  • bryan

    Haters leave Erin Andrews alone. she is a wonderful sideline reporter. And will do a great job for fox. It as nothing to do with racist I am sure.

    • robert5467890

      it does always has always was always will be

  • Doug Macdonald

    Don’t get it with Erin. Never liked her, still don’t. Definitely not all that hot either.

    • JCJ Bike

      Having seen that video the guy took of her in the hotel room… there is only one person more enamored with Erin Andrews than all the guys that stare at her on TV, and that’s Erin Andrews herself. She just couldn’t stop checking herself out from all angles every 10 seconds. It went from being “ooww” to “gees… give it a rest honey,” in a matter of one minute.

      • Emkay

        heads up dooshbag! she don’t like you either.

        • JCJ Bike

          How do you know? Are you one of those guys who lives in your mom’s basement with your walls covered with her photos constantly thinking to yourself.. “hey… I think she is staring at me. I think she likes me.”

          Don’t be the creepy guy who feels you need to defend the honor of a woman that you will never meet and who doesn’t care if you exist.

          • Emkay

            she still don’t like you dooshbag….LMFAO..
            If you reply, it means you are a super dooshbag…

          • JCJ Bike

            So you ARE the creepy guy who lives in his mom’s basement staring at pictures of erin andrews?? Wow… I struck a nerve.

            Time to grow up and go get a real girl because a photo on the wall isn’t a real girl. Even andrews would tell you that.

          • Emkay

            since you are a super dooshbag that cannot read, you will still reply proving you are a dooshbag….you just can’t help yourself….you’re a fooking moron too….

          • JCJ Bike

            Ha ha… No matter what, I’m going to one-up you with the last word. You stepped up and tried to be snarky and now you realize I will just come back again and again just to make fun of you. Go talk to your mom about your life situation and maybe she will make you a sandwich? Then come back and google erin andrews and look at her photos for the rest of the night.

          • Emkay

            last word? here’s six words for you, ‘fu*k you and go to hell..

            “Sorry dear… your father and I have finally realized that you are a dork and there is nothing we can do about it. You won’t find a woman (without paying her or buying her from china) who will want to be with you, and frankly, the “smart genie” didn’t grant you any wishes.”

  • robert5467890

    anybody can tell you they would prefer to se a white guy do a reporting scene or a white woman reporting a scene than a black person anyday of the week it is based on human nature.Sarah Walsh better than Josina Anderson Erin Andrews better than Pam Oliver Skip Bayless better than Stephen A Smith Wendi Nix better than Sage Steele it’s no comparison right there.Now you want to compare blondes okay maybe blondes aren’t the best at there work maybe brunettes or black hair or white females were but at least they knew what they were talking about.Most blondes are to dumb and ditzy to understand to figure that out.

    • Aston Villian

      No, Pam Oliver is better than Erin Andrews.

      • Rosalie Wright

        So true…Erin Andrews needs a different voice and a better personality. Her comments miss proper training. She’s aggressive in a unpopular irritating way

        • JCJ Bike

          She has that “nasal-y” voice that can be annoying.

      • http://Aol.com Mbakey

        No way, Pam stumbles over her words, have you ever listened.

    • Leslie

      Robert, Erin is not a natural blond. Can’t you see her dark roots. She is a stupid brunette and you are a stupid dark haired asshole.

    • eclipse vader

      yah, you lost me when you said skip better than stephen a. lol oh man i needed a good chuckle

      • http://lemax-spookytown.com/ JoeD

        Same here. That’s like saying having your left leg amputated in a chainsaw accident is better than having your right leg amputated in a chainsaw accident. Both are equally and extraordinarily painful

    • Emkay

      you sound really truly blonde!

    • Emkay

      I’ve ‘understood to figure out’ that you’re a moron…

  • TYPE O NEGATIVE

    Pam Oliver used her interviews to race bait

    • Emkay

      uh, I think she’s a nice black lady….move on…you must be a little ‘prick…

  • Vic romano

    Uh, just how “qualified” is Pam Oliver? Not that I think Erin Andrews is any better. Why have someone on the sideline who never had a lick of experience with the game at all? They’re both a couple of talking heads at best.

  • Confused

    I read that article three times and still have no idea what it’s about.

    • Emkay

      that’s because you’re a dumbass dumbass dumbass……

  • Bob_BBA70

    Come on, there both a waste of time, what guy that really knows his football sits there and listens to these to bimbo’s. I nearly always use the cut to them as an excuse to see what the other game is doing or hit the frig.

  • John D. Fiat

    Oh, come on. I guess the old saying “once you go black you never go back” is true. But I don’t mean to use that phrase as in meaning something good, as it’s traditionally used (for some weird reason). No, I mean that in this overly PC world, once they get a minority in some high paying position, it’s somehow considered taboo to even consider replacing them with anybody else, even if they display total incompetence, unless it’s another so-called minority (and even then you might have trouble with things like the Brown-Black war). It’s almost as if anybody else is considered to be inferior, even though the performances given by people like our horrible POTUS, say otherwise. In fact, Obama was mainly re-(s)elected because of the “well, he’s black, so even though he is an incompetent idiot whom is F-ing up our country, he deceives another chance because of slavery 250 years ago” kind of mentality.

    • Markus Rinol

      Hate to tell ya bud, but the country wasn’t in good shape before President Obama took office. Not that he’s done any better, but please stop acting as if you were in some utopic nation before the man took office. As for Andrews replacing Oliver, she’s a damn joke and you know it. At least they could’ve found another blonde cock sucka to hire instead of this skank who possesses the face of a catcher’s mitt.

      • http://Aol.com Mbakey

        You are just stupid, Obama has screwed up the mess ten fold
        As for Erin, always prepared, not like Pam who just wings it.

        • Colorblind

          Of course the black women wings it, and the white women is always prepared. Bigot

          • http://Aol.com Mbakey

            F you, facts are facts

      • shane hibbs sr

        True, Obama has done any better, in fact he has done way worse.

        • tony

          You know, for all u so called self made american white people, u all do blame our president who has maybe 5% to do with what goes in our daily lives, my life hasn’t changed since bush or Obamas been in office, I paid the most taxes then I pay the most now, ur pissed about your wage increase, get a second job, or start your own side business like I did, you always talk about blacks and other minorities being victims, but the only victim’s I see are all of you whining idiots on here blaming our president for your own laziness and incompetence.

          • Emkay

            aaaaaaaa Tony! shut up and go to work!

    • Emkay

      why did you vote for him John??

    • Emkay

      you can’t hide moron!… real moron…

  • John D. Fiat

    Pam Oliver was a good reporter, and was even good-looking a few year back, but FOX merely decided that is was time to move on. I know musicians that play for huge artists, and after a few years (and/or albums) they often get replaced. But it’s hardly ever for doing anything wrong, it’s simply because that artist (singer-rapper, etc. with a record deal) wants to shake things up with some new blood. And if you are a professional you just move on to your next gig. And Pam is a pro, she isn’t the one complaining here, it’s all of those liberal trolls in the MSM.

    • http://Aol.com Mbakey

      Agree completely, who let the liberals out of their cages

  • Shane Rogers

    Bring back Pam and the weave!

  • Gaberod

    The segment of angry racist blacks, the hispanic and white liberal sheep, and the biased liberal media are hell bent on destroying the American values that built this great country. There King who resides on Pennsylvania ave has got to be so happy with what he’s done in 6 yrs………

        You two are bigots, and not from just reading this comment, but from reading all of your comments on your profile, if you are going to be racist and hate anything that is minority driven, then just man up take responsibility and own your racism. At least you may be able to garner some respect instead of sounding like a bitter, bigoted old retired whiner.

        F U too.

  • URBeingRacistByCitingRacism

    Wow these racial comments and mentalities are crazy on both sides. Then bringing politics in the arguments. You all need to take a chill pill.. REALLY! Pam was not replaced because she is black. That is the most idiotic thinking in this situation. The only level headed comment I saw was that she was replaced to get new blood and shake things up. It happens every where. Maybe it was a little bit of prejudice against Pam getting older, looks not as good or whatever, but i don’t believe it has anything to do with race ie. the color of pam’s skin vs the color of erin’s skin.

    • tony

      Yeah Pam’s a good reporter and all, but if she was gonna lose her job because she was black then it would’ve happened years ago, I agree, I’m not saying stuff like this still doesn’t happen I just don’t believe it happened in this situation

  • URBeingRacistByCitingRacism

    Also, President Obama wasn’t re-elected because he was black, you morons, he was relected because more people believed in him to run the country than his opponent. There was a lot going wrong with our country when he took over and maybe he did or didn’t do a good job his first four years, but he had more of a uphill climb than any other president since sending troops to Vietnam.

    • Markus Rinol

      That’s the most well thought out and expressed comment that I’ve seen on this thread yet! I agree with you 100%.

  • JT

    EA is nothing but a BIMBO that got lucky that some perv wanted to video her
    no one knew who this See U Next Tuesday horrible person was
    she knew a little sports big freaking deal she dresses like one of the whores from OC
    and will hock any product u put money at
    Personally she is a horrible person who thinks the world owes her something
    she will always be the bimbo that got video taped and we had to put up with ALL her
    crying poor poor Erin
    please go away and take all the trash with u

    • Gidgetgirl1234

      Bitter much, JT? Erin Andrews is an excellent sports commentator and a beautiful lady; reminding you too much of all the beautiful women you will never, ever get? ROTFLMAO!

  • jack

    Tell me why? Why do we have to endure sideline reporters at all? Inane prattle during the game, stupid questions, badly spoken ‘info” written rather hastily by some underpaid guy or gal in the control room. It annoys’ the hell out of me and I don’t want to listen to Pam Oliver OR too tall Erin! They ad nothing to the enjoyment of the game. the game, oh, that’s right the Game. THAT is why I have the damned channel on!

    • http://Aol.com Mbakey

      I do agree, what bothers me more is asking the coaches questions.
      The score is 34 to 6, what needs to change in the second half, if I was coach I would say you going away.

  • Rosalie Wright

    Erin Andrews the squeaky voiced person who oversteps her position with stupid remarks is not someone I will listen to or follow.

  • Anthony Joseph Ziegler

    Erin Andrews isn’t pretty? LMAO. You lose all credibility to anything else you say when you spout out such nonsense. Don’t be a mouth breather. If you don’t like her just say you don’t like her. Don’t deny her the one thing she has going for her, that being her beauty.

  • T Gentry

    If blacks can never be fired then they’ll never be hired in the first place. Pam Oliver had her time, and she lasted a lot longer than any other sideline reporter I can think of. 52 is ancient for the position, it calls for an attractive young female.

    • Dani

      What is wrong with having someone on the sidelines that knows what is going on and can talk intelligently about the game, regardless of their age? If you want attractive young females, watch the cheerleaders.

      • T Gentry

        If you want intelligent discussion of the game then get men on the sidelines.

  • Wes

    Great decision. Pam Oliver is solid but she’ll easily find other work. excellent addition to the Fox sideline team.

  • Daniel Bertram

    to late. Give the woman a chance for Christ’s sake. This woman has overcome a peek hole pervert and nude photos all over the web but she still hangs her head high. I don’t think she is the best “eye candy” witch everyone is saying she is. There are a lot of better looking female reporters out there for one Melissa Steele. personally I think Erin’s nose is too big but I still like her, give her a season if it doesn’t workout replace her…

  • Steve Wilson

    Im sorry,did I fall asleep?

  • tuggyc

    We don’t care what the sideline reporter has to say. We care about her appearance. Pam had a good run. It’s time for someone else to take over.

  • stonebreaker

    minihane should be fired, pam oliver’s is a fine broadcaster, but not young pretty blond and white. good luck pam.

  • k g

    “i’m sure she’s a nice person”

    Stop with this, things change, sorry Pam. The race stuff is what’s wrong with the media and minorities

  • jrwlsju

    I was not a huge fan of Erin Andrews but the poise with which she handled Richard Sherman interview impressed me. Most white reporters, male and female, would have been flustered by his aggression. She took it in stride, stood up to him and made him look silly.

  • T.B. Downs

    Andrews will fit in with Maria Bartiromo and the other bimbos that have bounced over to various Fox channels.

  • tihsdaerfoorp

    Erin Andrews is caught some serious flack ……..proofread yer shiot

  • stormie

    I don’t know who Pam Oliver is. I do know Erin Andrews ugly ass needs to be off tv. She is the reason I stop watching Dancing For The Stars. 36 looks 56.

  • Jane Bryant

    I think Erin is totally overrated and dumb. On DWTS she is a klutz and has no class as she always says things like “YOU GUYS AT HOME — VOTE FOR THESE GUYS! They need to bring Brooke back as she is smart and is one classy co-host. Erin acts like she is interviewing football players and not the wonderful dancers on the show. Please DWTS dump Erin or many of us will not watch it next season.

    “Erin Andrews is caught some serious flack from many different directions after the announcement another..” Should be “HAS caught some serious FLAK”. Editing fail

  • Chip Dougherty

    Shouldn’t be any women on the sidelines! Pam Oliver sucked and so will Andrews

  • Billy Long

    She is too thin to be a sideline reporter.

  • CommonSense

    I can’t stand watching Erin Andrews. She is so awkward with dumb questions. There are plenty of intelligent women out there that I would rather watch and listen to. FOX SUCKS.

    To all you twits who don’t know how to do anything but cry racism about every damn thing. Pam Oliver did not get fired, she got promoted to senior correspondent you dumb asses. For all you race baters who are to damn stupid to know what a promotion is because you spend your lives living off the governments dime. A promotion means higher pay, more responsibilities and more authority; in other words, a better job. That does not sound too damn racist, now does it. Try knowing what the hell you are talking about before you all start running your pathetic mouths next time.

    Erin Andrews “perky”?? She always looks/acts like she has chip on her shoulder and gives off this ‘Don’t even look at me’ vibe. Going to Dancing with the Stars was the suitable move for her.(although looking at other comments, looks like she is not being well received!)
    Let’s face it, she’s not -that- hot. She’s a solid 7…maybe an 8 on her best day. 36? Looks early – mid 40s. Hey TV execs: Are there really no other women in the pool left to pick? Really don’t understand why she is on everyone’s radar now.

    the whole idea of sideline reporters is ridiculous. not needed. never been needed. never has provided any insight that we couldn’t get from the broadcast booth.

  • Jako

    Who cares what this person thinks? A lot to do about nothing.

  • JCJ Bike

    Hey… Pam Oliver got on the FOX sidelines for being an early 30’s cutie as well. Give her credit for not being critical of the system that put her on national TV with relatively little experience. She played the game… made a lot of money… and now it’s time for the next flavor of the month.
    Katie Couric was 27 when she signed on to be the host of the Today Show. It’s a visual medium and looks matter. And frankly, a sideline reporter sounds like something that is needed, but rarely do they report on anything of value. They grab the coach as he is jogging off the field and he says the same thing every time… “we’ve got to play better in the second half.”

    erin andrews is a talentless skank..bitch selling that phony pro biotics snake oil

  • DJhabulst

    Erin Andrews sucks. The comment was apt.

  • DJhabulst

    Erin Andrews sucks. The comment was apt. Once again free thought
    is being crushed by power, but its not dead yet.

  • DonWon

    Umm. I thought the reason for sideline reporters was to raise the ratings with eye candy. Like does anyone really care what they say?

    • pete14789

      no

  • Labbydor

    I say do away with any female reporter. They do not no the game as well as ex-nfl reporters and I want to watch football without all the tee-heeing on the sidelines with the slutty reporters who know nothing of the game. All they can do is read a prompter. EA and PO both suck! You might as well hire a pornstar if you are going to have women on their just for eye candy. At least the pornstar can massage the mic with her lips and make it interesting.

    • pete14789

      u gay

  • PatC

    Kirk Minihane’s comments were out of line. I happen to like both Pam and Erin. They are both knowledgeable and you need to leave race out of this. Why does that always become the topic. Ridiculous!

  • Reese McKenna

    they both suck and Andrews is a legal nightmare

  • Apollo1011 .

    This critic sounds like a queer. Is he?

  • pete14789

    all the question they ask are fed to them by the production crew..they are nothing more than parrots..not one is better than the other so you might as well get a hot one..and speaking of pam..about 6 yrs ago she was doiing a playoff game in the pouring rain.. at half time her make up began to run..they didn’t show her on cam the rest of the game

  • Katydid19

    Kirk Minihane is a pompous scumbag. He is always spouting off like a jackass on the Dennis and Callahan Show and he’s had to apologize about other things he’s said. It’s time he went back to the hat shop he used to work in and get off the airways.

  • hawksrock

    Yes Andrews is nothing more than inane eye candy. But come on guys, this is football. I’m not looking for deep meaningful commentary or insight in my sideline sports reporters. Stick a hot blond in a short dress with a microphone in front of some athlete and let the jock say his canned 30 seconds and get back to the real analysts in the press box and studio. This is what football fans want. It isn’t the WNBA.

  • joe s

    Here is the bottom line: If Erin Andrews, or any good looking woman, is going to increase ratings then they would be irresponsible not to make the switch. Pam Oliver did not get the job because of her sports IQ. Erin Andrews will not keep it past the age of 45, let alone 50 something. In this instance it is the business of looking good that they are shooting for.

  • finman1966 .

    Pam Oliver is a horrible reporter and that is why she is getting sacked. She’d constantly flub her lines or ask nonsensical interview questions…. and that isn’t even mentioning how annoying she comes across.

  • Sure mob

    No Erin Andrews fan, cheerleaders should stay with Pompoms but those remarks are firing offenses Pam Oliver was worthless

  • miscast

    Even if you don’t think Fox made the correct choice swapping Andrews for Oliver, somebody tell me when it became okay to thrash someone with degrading comments and pure personal attacks? Couldn’t he just say I think they made a mistake and I wont be watching Fox….What an jerk

  • David Bach

    HOW do you blame a person for a job promotion? Did she stab Oliver in the back? Lobby for the position? No. Andrews was offered the promotion and took it, LIKE ANY OTHER NORMAL HUMAN BEING WOULD. Including that mysogynist Minihane.

    Hypocrites.
