Dancing with the Stars’ Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will not be continuing with the show. Bergeron has been with the series since the start and hosted for 28 seasons. Andrews hosted for 6 seasons after competing herself.

This announcement came from Bergeron’s Twitter stating the show would be going in a “new direction.”

Of course we all were eagerly anticipating who would take the mantle as the DWTS newest host.

We did have to wait long…DWTS will be welcoming Tyra Banks as its newest host!

But with the announcement of Banks becoming the newest host we also learned even more exciting things about the future of our favorite dancing competition series.

During Bank’s interview with Good Morning America, Banks announced she would be executive producing for the live show and is excited for the challenge! 

“I am excited about hosting and executive producing… getting in there, live TV. You never know what happens on live TV.”

Banks was the first Black supermodel featured on both Sports Illustrated and the Victoria Secret catalog.

Along with these accomplishments, she is adding another one to her list. Banks will officially be the first black female host of Dancing With The Stars and the first solo host! You go Ms. Banks! 

With breaking all these barriers, Banks is extremely proud but she is more interested in letting more people in on the experience and being able to allow others to be inspired by her career. 

“I like breaking those doors down so that we don’t have any more firsts, but it’s nice to be first right?” she said. “So that you can open that door and let so many other people in after you.”
