Erin Andrews calls returning to 'Dancing with the Stars' as host like going home to 'family'

By Gina DiFalco,

Erin Andrews is dishing about her new gig as Dancing with the Stars co-host alongside Tom Bergeron. Since her stint as a competitor on Season 10, the Fox Sports reporter said it’s nice to be back.

Andrews announced the cast of Season 18 of DWTS on Good Morning America with Bergeron on Tuesday morning. The cast includes stars like Candace Cameron Bure, James Maslow and Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes.

She told E! News returning to the show to co-host is like returning home to “family.”

Andrews explained, “Being on season 10 of Dancing With the Stars was one of the greatest times of my life. I made some great friends."

She’s also excited about the contestants this year, saying she tracked down Leakes and told her "I'm kind of obsessed with you."

Meanwhile, professional dancer Derek Hough told E! that fired host Brooke Burke-Charvet is doing “great” and that Andrews “fits right in.”

The new season of Dancing with the Stars debuts March 17 on ABC.
