DWTS Producer Reveals Why Tom Bergeron & Erin Andrews Were Replaced:

Dancing with the Stars fans were shocked when long time hosts Tom Bergeron and  Erin Andrews were let go ahead of the new season (and so were the hosts themselves).

The show’s producer finally addressed the decision on Wednesday, September 30th during ABC’s VirtualFall panel saying, “I think it’s all about evolution. I think any show like this that has been on many, many seasons needs to continue to evolve. I think changing the host was all about evolution, it was about making the show feel fresh, making it feel new [and] kind of make it reach out — maybe to a new audience as well, as well as the audience that’s been there for years.”

The former hosts had some fun with this statement on Twitter:
