Erin Andrews is no newcomer to "DWTS." She competed in season 10.Mireya Acierto / Today

"Dancing With the Stars" pink-slipped co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet Friday, and on Monday, the ballroom bash already has a new co-host. Erin Andrews will be the next lady to stand next to long-running host Tom Bergeron when season 18 kicks off next month, her spokesperson confirmed to TODAY.

ABC also confirmed the news in a press release Monday, noting that her experience as a sports reporter will "be an asset in hosting a spirited dance competition." 

Andrews, 35, is no stranger to the glitz and glam of the ballroom. The Fox Sports reporter competed in season 10 alongside pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and finished in third place.

Fan reaction has been a bit mixed since the change was revealed.

The co-hosting change isn't the only cast revision in the upcoming season. The show announced earlier that music director Harold Wheeler wouldn't be returning. Ray Chew is replacing him.

Former co-host Burke-Charvet kept her chin up and even joked about her firing Sunday.
