She announced the new gig via her website, writing: "Today is one of the most exciting days ever!!! With the exception of my family and children, today tops the list of all my professional endeavors!!!"
It sounds like it was quite the clandestine operation, with Burke agreeing to keep mum until ABC had all its marketing lined up. "I was sworn to secrecy until the GMA announcement and the ABC press release went out," writes Burke. "So now that it’s public… I am thrilled beyond words to have landed the Co-Host gig for Dancing with The Stars"
Look for her to start March 22nd, when the newest season of Dancing with the Stars
kicks off. "I know what it’s like to step out there on the dance floor, on a whim and a prayer, trying to pull off the impossible," writes Burke. "I’ll see you there March 22nd. This time a LOT less stressed!"
