Tom Brady can bring ‘stuff we just die for’ to broadcasting career: Erin Andrews

There are plenty of people wondering how Tom Brady will do when he steps into the Fox broadcast booth this upcoming season, but at least two people at the network are sure he will be a hit. 

Fox’s Charissa Thompson and Erin Andrews were on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” when the topic of Brady came up. 

Andrews is set to work with Brady as part of Fox’s top NFL broadcast crew this year and after sitting down for lunch with the legendary quarterback, there was no question for her that Brady would be able to intrigue audiences with his knowledge and insight.

“I’ve sat with him at lunch before and he’s been telling stories about his career,” Andrews said. “And it’s stuff we just die for. Love the inside information. And you are just hearing stuff that you’ve just always wanted to know.”

The three joked that it was annoying that Brady has been good at just about everything he’s done. 

“His resume supports that he is great at everything he does, so why would this be any different,” Thompson added during the conversation. 

Along with Andrews, Brady will have play-by-play man Kevin Burkhardt on the broadcasts. 

Brady’s first game in the Fox booth will be on Sept. 8, when the Browns take on the Cowboys. 

Brady himself also appeared confident that he would be able to bring a new perspective to football broadcasts on the network when he spoke with Front Office Sports in March.

“I believe I can provide a pretty unique perspective that I think a lot of people will really like. It’s going to be a lot of hard work. It’s going to be a lot of fun,” he told the outlet. “It’s always about challenging yourself to grow in different areas. And this is certainly one way that I’m doing it.”

Brady signed a 10-year, $375 million deal with Fox in May 2022, but some felt the former Patriots and Buccaneers quarterback would never step into the broadcasting role.
