Andrews does have a degree from UF so it's not like she's an idiot. She's a pretty face and it helps her out, but she also has an education and work ethic to go along with it. Believe me, I've met my fair share of airheads in the business...she isn't one of them.
Never said she was and I added she likely works hard at what she does now. My comment about education not being what it used to be is drawn from years of conversations, interviews and dealings with people in the industry (collegiate and otherwise) who told me similar, even though I didn't agree. Let's just say that when you're being interviewed by a guy who can barely form complete sentences (yet has a posh radio gig) and he tells you you're overeducated and a MA will only keep you out of the loop (since it gives the impression you would have to be paid more), it isn't a nice thing to have to swallow.
I don't care if they look like Charley Steiner or Rachel Nichols...if they can do their job well, give them the gig for that alone.
