No more sub-par scores for Erin Andrews when Dancing With the Stars returns for season 18. The Fox Sports reporter has signed on to co-host the hit ABC reality competition show. Andrews' favorite part? Not being subjected to the judges' and fellow co-host Tom Bergeron's performance critiques.
"Love u @Tom_Bergeron!! I can't wait..and the best part is I won't be getting 7's from Len and yelled at for not pointing my toes! #winner," she tweeted on Feb. 24.
The 35-year-old journalist competed in season 11 of the show with dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy where she placed third out of 11 couples.
The seasoned sports reporter also confirmed that she would be staying with Fox Sports in 2014.
"And yes, I'm still a part of the @FOXSports family..it will be a BUSY fall..getting tips from @michaelstrahan on how to balance it," she joked on Twitter.
Andrews is replacing DWTS veteran Brooke Burke-Charvet, who was a co-host on the show for seven seasons. The former dancer was abruptly fired from the show after a series of sudden forced exits, including music director Harold Wheeler and the 28-person band.
“We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season," Conrad Green, the show’s executive producer, told Us Weekly 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. We’d like to thank Brooke for her years of great service.”
