Monday Night Football's new sideline reporter, Guerrero, 39, makes her debut on Aug. 4 at the Hall of Fame Game.
SI: Have you heard from the woman you're replacing, Melissa Stark?
Guerrero: One of the best moments in the last couple of days was a call from Melissa Stark. I had never met her, but I was a huge fan. She called to congratulate me and to tell me about the job and give me her phone number.
SI: If all sideline reporters were eliminated tomorrow, would viewers suffer?
Guerrero: Viewers want as much information as quickly as possible, so yes, it would be a bad thing.
SI: You played a "volunteer bimbo" in the movie Batman Returns. How does one prepare for that role?
Guerrero: Lots and lots of research. (Laughs.)
SI: Does sexuality have a place in sports broadcasting?
Guerrero: You have hundreds of choices around the dial, and if somebody stops on a station because they see an attractive face—male or female—that's certainly going to help the show.
SI: If you didn't get the job, who would you have hired?
