Erin Andrews will be hosting 'Dancing With the Stars' this season.

The Fox News reporter, 35, will be replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet after it was announced Bruke-Charvet would not be returning to the show this season.

Andrews competed for the Mirror Ball back in 2010, but this time she'll be next to Tom Bergeron as co-host. After the news came out today, Andrews reassured fans she would keep her position at Fox News.


In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Andrews admitted she has huge shoes to fill and that it will be a big adjustment for all involved. "She was very wonderful toward me in my season. She was so caring and so fantastic. I can only hope I can emulate somebody like that and use her for guidance," she said.

"I feel great," she told PEOPLE. "I was texting with Maksim, my old partner. He was saying, 'Wow, it's coming full circle for you.' "
