(USA TODAY Sports) Erin Andrews is going from the sideline to the ballroom. It was announced Monday that the Fox Sports host and sideline reporter will replace Brooke Burke-Charvet as Tom Bergeron's co-host on ABC's long-running reality hit Dancing With the Stars.
Fox Sports signed off on Andrews appearing on a show aired by a rival network, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Andrews was a contestant on the 10th season of DWTS and finished in third-place behind gold-medal figure skater Evan Lysacek and former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger. But enough about that.
The main question now is how hard DWTS will go after Seattle Seahawks star and Erin Andrews' ranter Richard Sherman. They'd have to give him a call to gauge interest, right? Sherman's got it all: Fame, footwork, panache, combustibility and a rapport with Andrews that made theirinterview after the NFC championship into the biggest story of Super Bowl week.
If Richard Sherman isn't in the plans, I suppose Andrews will have to find a big story somewhere else, like with Snooki's fiancee talking smack about Justine Bateman.
The new cast for Dancing With the Stars will be unveiled on Mar. 4. Andrews will make her debut as co-host on Mar. 17.
