Andrew Gunsberg will host the upcoming U.S. competition show "Live to Dance," CBS said Wednesday.

Gunsberg served as co-host of "Australian Idol," and as host of the nationally syndicated radio countdown, "Take 40 Australia." Additionally, Gunsberg was host of Australia's Network Ten quiz show series, "The ConTest."

Choreographer Travis Payne and former Pussycat Dolls member Kimberly Wyatt are to join executive producer and mentor Paula Abdul on the panel of experts for "Live to Dance," the network said.

Dancers eager to demonstrate their talents will have an opportunity during the series' two upcoming open casting calls; the first on Thursday in New York at the Jacob Javits Center and the second open casting call in Los Angeles Oct. 28 at a location to be determined, CBS said.
