The new co-host of Dancing with the Stars is 10th-season third-place finalist Erin Andrews. ABC is expected to announce that tomorrow, three days after unceremoniously firing Brooke Burke-Charvet, who was surprised to be let go.
USA TODAY’s Big Lead reports that “Andrews is not leaving Fox Sports” and “will continue her sports duties — sideline reporting, hosting — for Fox, and co-host Dancing with the Stars on ABC during the week.”
Update, 24 Feb. 14: ABC confirmed Andrews’ hiring this morning in a press release announcing that the cast will be announced March 4. The network said that she is “a pioneer in sports broadcasting” and so her “skills from the field are sure to be an asset in hosting a spirited dance competition.”
