Veteran sports journalist and Florida A&M University alumna Pam Oliver confirmed to SI.com that she will be leaving the sidelines as the lead in-game reporter for FOX NFL Sunday broadcasts.
Oliver is being replaced by Erin Andrews in the ‘number one’ telecast unit, and will report for the ‘number two’ unit for her 20th and final season as a sideline correspondent.
“To go from the lead crew to no crew was a little shocking,” Oliver told Richard Deitsch of SI.com. “I said I wanted to do a 20th year [on the sidelines]. I expressed to them that I was not done and had something to offer. Again, I think it was predetermined coming in. Not at that meeting, but two years ago it was determined that no matter what I did or did not do, a change would be made for this year.”
