Erin Andrews Reacts to 'Dancing With the Stars' Moving to Disney+ After She's Cut From Show

Erin Andrews discusses her feelings about the movie Dancing With the Stars from ABC to Disney+. Dailion chatted with the FOX Sports anchor on the show’s major change and what she thinks of how things have changed after she was cut off the show ahead of season 29.

“I certainly noticed it from all the dancers posting it,” the longtime DWTS co-host admitted. “I just hope they’re doing OK and excited about it.” “Those folks are the ones that have my heart and passion. As long as they’re all good, that is.”

When it was announced that Tom Brady would be joining Andrews on FOX Sports as the lead NFL analyst once he officially retires, Andrews revealed that she was due for a catch-up with her former DWTS co-host, Tom Bergeron.

“I’m genuinely disappointed because the Tom Brady announcement happened on the day I was going to have lunch with Tom Bergeron, and I had to go to FOX,” she explained. “My Tom meal was destroyed by Tom. ‘I never imagined I’d say this to you, but Tom Brady just destroyed our lunch, so, from one Tom to another, I’ll have to catch up with you soon,’ I said.”

Andrews went on, “But I miss Tom Bergeron a lot and hope to see him again soon… He’s the absolute finest.”

Andrews became a co-host for DWTS host Tom Bergeron in 2014, and the two worked together until season 28. Bergeron, who has hosted the show since its inception, announced his departure from the series in July 2020. Shortly after, Andrews announced his departure.

Tyra Banks had joined the show as the new host and executive producer a few days later.

Andrews claims that the news of her dismissal came as a shock and left her reeling.

Andrews revealed that she received the news while on the putting green with her husband, Jarret Stoll and that she didn’t have much time to deal with it.

“I got a call saying, ‘So-and-so from ABC wants to speak with you,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, s**t, this is it,'” Andrews said. “I was a pity for myself.”

Andrews claimed the termination was even more terrifying because of the coronavirus outbreak when no one knew when live television would resume production and finding a job was more difficult than ever.

“I was like, ‘Oh crap, I’m a loser, this is terrible,” she explained. “It was a huge letdown.”

Andrews appeared on the Token CEO podcast in September 2020, admitting that, despite how difficult it was to learn she’d been fired from the long-running reality competition series, her love of television and experience working in the industry gave her hope that she’d be able to work on-air again in the future.

“I enjoyed being in that environment, and I believe that, as much as I adore athletics, I am a fan of a variety of things, including reality television. I’m merely a TV fanatic “Andrews insisted.
