Former NBC News Correspondent Maria Menounos to Dance ‘With the Stars’

ABC announced the cast of this season’s “Dancing with the Stars” on “Good Morning America” this morning, and while Nancy Grace will not be coming back for a second go-around, TV news will still be represented. Former NBC News correspondent and current host of the syndicated entertainment show “Extra” Maria Menounos, will be on the cast this season. In addition, there will be a bit of corporate synergy, with ABC’s “The View” co-host Sherri Shephard also joining the cast.

Nancy Grace’s former dance partner, Tristan McManus, will be dancing this year with legendary singer Gladys Knight, who says the Pips are the reason for her joining the cast. “They never let me dance!” You can see the rest of the cast, which includes singers, athletes and actors, here.
