PBS’s ‘Capitol Fourth’ gets a new host: Tom Bergeron


Tom Bergeron (Capital Concerts/PBS)

Jimmy Smits had hosting duties for the last few years.

Bergeron is, of course, also known as the co-host of ABC’s competition series ”Dancing With the Stars.”

NBC stars will also have a presence on the show, as Megan Hilty (troubled Marilyn Monroe wannabe on “Smash”) and Javier Colon (winner of “The Voice” last season) will appear. Plus, performances from Kool & the Gang, Broadway’s Kelli O’Hara and the National Symphony Orchestra.
