Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews are exiting the ballroom stage left.
Bergeron, who has hosted Dancing With the Stars since the beginning, tweeted on that he will no longer serve as the ABC hit’s host after 15 years of service. A few days after the news of his exit broke, it was revealed Tyra Banks will be taking over hosting duties, as well as serving as an executive producer as the show heads in a “new creative direction,” per a press release.
“Just informed [Dancing With the Stars] will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career,” Bergeron wrote. “I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”
Andrews, who has served as his co-host since 2014, will also be exiting, with ABC and BBC Studios saying in a statement, “Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”
