Tom Bergeron is leaving his hosting job at America's Funniest Home Videos after 13 years.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Bergeron is departing America's Funniest Home Videos after next season. Bergeron took over as host in 2001 from Bob Saget and has since become the show's longest running host. In 2005, Bergeron became the host of the hit reality dance show Dancing with the Stars.
Bergeron is happy he is leaving the show and is grateful for all his years as the host. Bergeron states, "And I've decided that, after 15 wonderful seasons as host of AFV, next year, the show's 25th anniversary(!!), will be my last."
However, even though Bergeron is departing the show as host, he tweeted that he may be doing a spin-off of America's Funniest Home Videos for ABC.
True, but we're not "parting," possibly. We've already pitched a LIVE spin-off show to ABC. http://t.co/mFPSwJUpo1

Bergeron will still serve as host of Dancing with the Stars, however now he will be joined by new co-host Erin Andrews, who is replacing former co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet.
