“Dancing with the Stars” fans are still reeling from finding out that long-term host, Tom Bergeron, has been let go. However, a recent post by the star proved that he was actually doing well.


Bergeron took to Instagram for the first time after revealing that he was no longer going to be the co-host of “Dancing with the Stars (DWTS).” He shared a photo of him kneeling and smiling next to a notice board on a hiking trail.

The board is visible in Broadmoor Seven Falls in Colorado Springs. According to his post, the hiking trail is in an area called Seven Falls Trail/Inspiration Point.

The message on it promoted the Black Lives Matter initiative, human rights, LGBTIQ+ rights, and more. In the caption of the post, Bergeron noted:

“This trail is called Inspiration Point. I can see why.”


The longtime host wore shorts, hiking boots, a t-shirt, and he had a face mask hanging around his neck. Clearly, the star was practicing the safety guideline of wearing a face mask when out in public.



On the same Tuesday, Bergeron, who hails from Haverhill, Massachusetts, posted a note revealing that he wasn’t going to return for the next season of DWTS. Fans of the dance competition probably know that he’s been with it since the first episode on June 1, 2005.

Tyra Banks would bring a whole new energy to "Dancing with the Stars"



That means the co-host has been with them for 15 years! ABC confirmed that he wasn’t returning and also shockingly revealed that they were letting his co-host, Erin Andrews, go so as well.



She had hosted the show with him for the past 6 seasons. The two co-hosts were being replaced by former model and host, Tyra Banks.



Banks was set to also serve as the executive producer of the show. A source explained why the network was taking such a drastic turn stating:

“ABC wanted to freshen the show up and take it in a new direction.”


The insider also noted how Banks was experienced when it comes to hosting television shows. The network also believed she knew how to produce “great TV and make TV moments.”

The former model was described as a “dynamic and fun” person who would “bring a whole new energy to the show.”
