Four years after her emotional exit from Dancing with the Stars, Erin Andrews will be strapping on her high heels again and returning to the ballroom, this time as a co-host, replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet.
In an exclusive interview, the sports reporter, 35, tells PEOPLE she knows it's going to be an adjustment – both for her and for those who are fans of Burke-Charvet.
"I don't blame the audience at all. How could you?" she says. "I know that I have huge shoes to fill. I'm a fan of Brooke. She was very wonderful toward me in my season. She was so caring and so fantastic. I can only hope I can emulate somebody like that and use her for guidance."
