Alfonso Ribeiro set as new host of "America's Funniest Home Videos"

"America's Funniest Home Videos" is getting a new host.

Former "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star and "Dancing with the Stars" season 19 champion Alfonso Ribeiro will be the show's next emcee.

He'll take over for current host Tom Bergeron, who announced the news during Tuesday's "DWTS" season finale.

"After receiving hundreds of inquiries, stacks of video submissions and a very close audition race, one smile, one funny and sincere delivery became our standout favorite -- Alfonso Ribeiro," said Vin Di Bona, the show's executive producer. "We look forward to Alfonso leading 'AFV' into the next generation of family friendly viewership."

Bergeron, who has hosted "America's Funniest Home Videos" since 2001, announced last year that he would be leaving the show after season 25. He'll still, however, continue on as host of "Dancing with the Stars."

Ribeiro will be the show's fifth host. Prior to the outgoing Bergeron, it was hosted by Bob Saget and then Daisy Fuentes and John Fugelsang.
