After weeks of rumors, Tom Bergeron’s “Dancing with the Stars” co-host will finally be revealed on Monday.
The announcement will be made on Monday’s “Good Morning America at the Oscars,” which airs the day after the 82nd Academy Awards. The announcement, which Tom will be on hand for, will occur between 7 and 9 AM ET.
A host of women have been rumored to take over the job vacated by Samantha Harris, who announced her departure from the reality competition back in January.
Former contestant Melissa Rycroft, who stepped into the cast of “Dancing’s” Season 8 after Nancy O’Dell had to leave the competition over injury, is believed to be in the running. Melissa joined Tom on Monday when the Season 10 cast was announced.
Mel B, who competed during Season 5, confirmed to Access Hollywood last month that she had a screen test for the show. Brooke Burke, who won Season 7 with professional dancer Derek Hough, used Twitter in mid-February to confirm her own screen test.
Other stars whose names have been bandied about as possible co-hosts include Nancy, Vanessa Minillo and Ashlan Gorse.
Reports have also surfaced that a rotating cast of beauties may actually fill the “Dancing” co-host gig.
In the meantime, the latest cast of “Dancing” was announced earlier this week.

Pamela Anderson & Damian Whitwood
Shannen Doherty & Mark Ballas
