NEW YORK (AP) -- Tom Bergeron will have his own partner when "Dancing With the Stars" returns later this month. Former series winner Brooke Burke will be his co-host.

Bergeron announced the change on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday.

As a contestant, Burke won during the season that ended in November 2008. She has hosted TV shows including CBS' "Rock Star" and E!'s "Wild On."

Contestants this season include former "Baywatch" babe Pamela Anderson, reality star Kate Gosselin, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Olympics figure skating gold medalist Evan Lysacek.

The new season begins March 22.
