Dancing With The Stars Spoilers: Tyra Banks ‘Secretly’ Announced As New Host Of DWTS
Dancing With the Stars season 29 will not have co-hosts, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. After their exits, a new host and executive producer have been chosen. We are excited to share that Tyra Banks has snagged the position! But we are concerned about why it was announced when most would miss it. Bad timing or was the reason a bit more sinister?
DWTS Co-Hosts Exit
Just two days ago, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were “released” from Dancing With the Stars. According to Heavy, Bergeron had been with the series since it’s 2005 debut. As for Andrews, she came on board in 2014.
As for why they were relieved of their duties, ABC told People that the show is going in a “new creative direction.” Bergeron simply wrote on Twitter that he was informed that DWTS would be going on without him.
New Host Announced At Midnight
Tyra Banks has been named the new host and executive producer of the dancing competition reality show. We are excited and absolutely love her! However, some wonder why the announcement was made at a time when most people are sleeping. It was sent out at midnight by Daily Mail, who only sourced “insiders” but Tyra confirmed it in a statement. Could it just be bad timing or is there another explanation?
Considering that the Daily Mail is a UK publication, they are six hours ahead of Central US time. It was actually 6 am over there when they posted the news. Just about the time that people are waking up and brewing their coffee.

Give Tyra Banks a Chance
We understand that fans are loyal to the former co-hosts. However, people come and go in the entertainment business all the time. She deserves to be given a chance. She has experience having led America’s Got Talent and America’s Next Top Model. She is charismatic, friendly, funny, and comes across as genuine. She’s both an entertainer and leader, which is a rare combination to find in one person.
Dancing With The Stars: New Host Releases Statement
According to Carter Matt, Tyra is excited about her new opportunity. Her statement reads, “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning. The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances. It’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk. Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”
