Tom Bergeron has been let for from his hosting gig at “Dancing with the Stars” after 15 years and 28 seasons. Erin Andrews won’t be back either; she’s been with the show since Season 18 in 2014.
Tom Tweeted, quote, “Just informed [that the show] will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15-year run and the most unexpected gift of my career… I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks? On the plus side, now I’m free for our socially distanced lunch!”

There’s no word on why Tom isn’t being brought back. Dancing with the Stars kicks off its twenty-ninth season this fall.
Celebrities took to Twitter to share their surprised reactions to news of Bergeron’s departure and support for the former host…
You are the best of the best! ❤️
