TOM BERG­ERON

USA TODAY US Edition - - LIFE -

Tom Berg­eron, the smooth-talk­ing, un­flap­pable host of “Danc­ing With the Stars,” will not re­turn to the re­al­ity dance com­pe­ti­tion next sea­son. Berg­eron, the orig­i­nal host who has worked on the show for 28 sea­sons, tweeted Mon­day that ABC would be “con­tin­u­ing with­out me” for the first time. For­mer con­tes­tant Erin An­drews, who has co-hosted since 2014, also will be re­placed when the 29th sea­son be­gins in fall 2020. Net­work ABC and pro­duc­tion com­pany BBC Stu­dios said in a state­ment to USA TODAY that both Berg­eron and An­drews would be re­placed due to the “cre­ative new di­rec­tion.”
