First they announced that live musicians were to be replaced by canned tracks on Dancing with the Stars. 28 players lost their jobs.
Now they have got rid of the excellent music director, Harold Wheeler.
The joint producers, BBC Worldwide Productions and ABC TV, issued this statement:
Our talented Music Director, Harold Wheeler, will not be joining us for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars. Since season one, Harold and his band have performed brilliant music in our ballroom for our dancers and the American viewers at home. We are grateful to him and his band for their amazing work and years of collaboration. We wish him the best of luck.
