Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews has been tapped to replace Brooke Burke-Charvet as co-host of Dancing with the Stars.
ABC confirmed Monday that the 35-year-old Andrews will take over as Tom Bergeron's co-host in the hit show's upcoming 18th season. The new cast of Dancing with the Stars is set to be announced March 4 on Good Morning America and the new season premieres Monday, March 17.
Burke-Charvet, 42, -- who co-hosted Dancing with the Stars with Bergeron for seven seasons -- tweeted the news that she was being dismissed, writing:
The network also confirmed the casting change in a statement. "She's been a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team," said Conrad Green, the show's executive producer. "We'd like to thank Brooke for her years of great service." There was no mention of any possible replacements.
In 2010, Andrews appeared as a contestant on the 10th season of Dancing with the Stars -- partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The duo came in third place.
