(Newser) – The FBI is investigating death threats against reporter Erin Andrews, TMZ reports. Within the past week, a Virginia man has emailed threats to The Dan Patrick Show, which airs on both radio and TV. Security is beefed up on the set of Dancing With the Stars, on which Andrews is a contestant.

The ESPN reporter was in the news last month when Michael Barrett, the Illinois man who had confessed to stalking her and shooting nude video of her in hotel rooms, was sentenced to 2½ years in prison.
