The search for a new co-host -- to helm the hit ABC show alongside Tom Bergeron -- began after Samantha Harris announced she would be leaving the show to focus on her journalism career at The Insider.

If Burke -- who won the mirror ball trophy with pro partner Derek Hough during Season 7 -- gets the gig, she'll return to the dance floor for the DWTS premiere on March 22.

"I remember that feeling like yesterday," she Twittered.

The new cast of celebrity competitors will be announced after The Bachelor finale on March 1.
