Pam Oliver Moved To Fox' No. 2 NFL Team For '14, Will Be Reassigned In '15
Published July 15, 2014
VARIOUS REACTIONS TO THE MOVE: Oliver's move off Fox' top NFL team created some waves on Twitter yesterday. CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish: "I realize it’s easy to beat up Fox for demoting Pam Oliver in favor of Erin Andrews, but I’d rather just congratulate Erin. … There are lots of pretty women who get into this business, and yet only one has managed to have the success Erin’s enjoyed. … In other words, if she weren’t also talented she would’ve disappeared a while ago. Seems insulting when folks refuse to acknowledge that." ESPN's Jemele Hill: "Pam Oliver is a legend, but Erin will be terrific. Let's not turn this into some sort of racial catfight." Sporting News' Jesse Spector: "Pam Oliver was a rare provider of substance in a tough job to be anything but a distraction. So of course Fox replaces her." The Washington Post's Cindy Boren: "I do not approve this switch, Fox Sports. ... I care about the quality of information I am getting and Oliver trumps Andrews." Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman: "All I'll say is Pam Oliver is one of the classiest people I've ever known in this business."
