The celebrity ballroom has new champions.  It took weeks of intense competition, but on Tuesday night, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews finally handed off the Mirror Ball trophy to the winners of "Dancing with the Stars" Season 22: Nyle DiMarco and his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd.  The deaf model, who also won Cycle 22 of "America's Next Top Model" last year, has been a beloved contestant since the beginning.

The Story of Us
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Like many of you, I often mark the arbitrary passage of time known as "the new year" by reflecting on my personal and professional accomplishments and shortcomings and laying out a plan for what I endeavor to do differently going forward. Translation: in late December, I get drunk and daydream. Don't make it weird. A fundamental part of my New Year's ritual involves reading a lot of year end lists, thought pieces, blog posts and more on the people, events and trends that dominated popular (and sometimes not so popular) discourse and media coverage and became "trending topics." I consider why those issues mattered enough to warrant our collective attention, how and if I can (or should) contribute to the dialogue around those topics as opposed to "staying in my lane" and how those ideas can be expressed creatively. Then I write foolish tweets like the one I posted in late November -- Just because white political refugees came to a new country & massacred the natives ...

'Dancing With The Stars': Did The Show Suffer This Season?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The words I have been hoping for since the third week of September were uttered by Tom Bergeron Tuesday night when he handed over the coveted Mirror Ball to Amber Riley and Derek Hough: our new champions of "Dancing With The Stars." Because, honestly, it could've gone either way. Twice a year, I look forward to another season of "Dancing With The Stars" and every time, I'm never disappointed. But for most of Season 17, I was not a happy viewer. Sure, there were some great pairs with touching stories (Valerie Harper and Jack Osbourne), and some nice surprises (Nicole Polizzi is a much better dancer than her former "Jersey Shore" co-star, The Situation) but they were outnumbered by the ridiculous amount of upsets. And while I do not blame Bill Engvall whatsoever (he is pretty darn likeable), I did blame the people who voted for him. I really had no idea that rednecks would outnumber Guidos and Guidettes, "Saved By The Bell" fans and Scientology haters the way they did. The fact that ...

Hosting with Laurie Hibberd, the show became quite successful on the upstart cable network, prompting the Fox Broadcasting Company to pick it up two years later. At the time, the cable system in his hometown of Haverhill didn't carry FX, leading to a long-running and ultimately failed public campaign to get them to pick up the channel or at the very least to locally syndicate the program. In September 1996, the program moved to Fox and became Fox After Breakfast, since it aired later in the morning than the other networks' morning programs.
    In early 1994, Bergeron briefly surfaced as a morning host on Boston's soft-rock station WMJX ("Magic 106.7"), which was only a short commute to WBZ's studios for his work on the noon news.
