The Vulture is reporting that Tom Bergeron is stepping down from America’s Funniest Home Videos. Below is a take explaining. Though just a while ago Tom tweeted to the Vulture that he’s not parting possibly, but, instead pitching a LIVE spin off. Hmmm….it’s going to be interesting to see what develops?
Longtime host Tom Bergeron has decided to call it quits after next season. The snarky yet lovable TV personality, who also hosts ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, tells Vulture that he’s simply chosen to move on from the gig he’s held down since 2001. “I’m embracing change this month,” he explain via an emailed statement. Noting that his other ABC show, Dancing With the Stars, is also making “plenty of” format and co-host changes, “I’ve decided that, after 15 wonderful seasons as host of AFV, next year, the show’s 25th anniversary(!!), will be my last,” Bergeron added. He didn’t volunteer any more details about why he’s decided to exit, but a person familiar with the situation insisted the pending departure is amicable.
