Mario Lopez out as Westminster co-host

With only two weeks remaining before the big event, the USA Network has announced that Mario Lopez is out as co-host of the 134th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

TamronHallTamron Hall is in.

On Friday the network announced that MSNBC’s Hall would be replacing Lopez as the co-host of Westminster, America’s second longest continuously held sporting event (behind only the Kentucky Derby).

“It saddens me to say I will not be able to co-host this year’s Westminster Kennel Club dog show, due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts,” Lopez said. “I wish Tamron, David and all the dogs the best of luck. I will be cheering you all on from LA.”

“I’ve been a dog lover my entire life,” said Hall. “I currently have two furry ‘best friends’ in my family, and I can’t wait for the show. I’m honored to be given the opportunity to join this team.”

Hall will be co-hosting the event with David Frei in his 21st consecutive year with the show. NBC Sports’ Tiffany Simons will also appear as a sideline reporter.

The first hour of the show will air on USA at 8 p.m. Monday, February 15.

The next two hours will air on CNBC, from 9 to 11 p.m. On Tuesday, all three hours, including the crowning of the 2010 Best in Show, is back on USA, from 8-11 p.m.
