NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Sportscaster and TV host Erin Andrews says her career has thrived after a stalker took nude videos of her and posted them on the Internet.

Andrews made the comments Tuesday under cross-examination. She’s been on the witness stand for two days, often giving tearful testimony about the fear and emotional fallout she says she suffered as a result of the stalking and the videos.

Andrews filed a $75 million lawsuit against her stalker and the owner and operator of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt. The hotel is a franchise.

Jurors will have to determine whether the companies share some of the blame after stalker Michael David Barrett altered a peephole in her hotel room in September 2008 to shoot the secret video footage. They also will have to determine how much Andrews suffered emotionally.
