According to ABC News on Feb. 24, sports broadcaster Erin Andrews revealed the best part of being named co-host of "Dancing With the Stars."

Earlier on Monday, the announcement was made that Andrews, 35, would replace Brooke Burke-Charvet, 42, as co-host. Burke-Charvet was notified on Friday that she was being let go. She was shocked because there had been no indication before the bad news came.

Conrad Green, the show's executive producer told ABC News in a statement:

"We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season. She's been a wonderful part of the 'Dancing With the Stars' family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We'd like to thank Brooke for her years of great service."

Andrews is a veteran of the show, having made it to the finals in season 10. Interestingly, that was the same season Burke-Charvet began co-hosting.

After getting the exciting news, Andrews tweeted:

"Love u @Tom_Bergeron!! I can't wait..and the best part is I won't be getting 7's from Len and yelled at for not pointing my toes! #winner"

The new cast of dancers will be revealed on "Good Morning America" on Mar. 4. Season 18 will start on ABC on Mar. 17.
