Erin Andrews and Charissa Thompson are getting into the podcasting game.

The longtime sports and entertainment reporters are close friends. Now, they'll be working closely together.

Andrews and Thompson, who both work for Fox Sports, are starting a podcast together. The new podcast, titled Calm Down with Erin and Charissa, will debut next week.

"Yep, like everyone else. It’s about any and everything and debuts Feb 17th & our first guest is a man who does everything and also just started a podcast, so we’re in good company," the duo wrote on social media earlier this month.

Andrews and Thompson recreated Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski's "Bad Boys for Life" video earlier in the month to help promote the podcast.

"UNFORTUNATELY, we ain’t really going nowhere. Why? Well, @charissajthompson & I have convinced @iheartpodcast to give us one. The trailer is out now! @CalmDownPodcast first episode drops on 2.17 with @kevinhart4real!" Andrews shared on social media.

It's been a big couple of months for this duo. Earlier this year, Thompson revealed that she has married. The longtime sports broadcaster married her boyfriend, sports agent Kyle Thousand.
