BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Donald Trump has officially been fired from "The Celebrity Apprentice."

NBC's entertainment chairman, Bob Greenblatt, announced Thursday that the show would not be back next season, but will return in the future with a new host.

NBC cut ties with Trump in June after Trump made comments about Mexican immigrants and NBC canceled its airing of the Miss USA pageant.

Greenblatt said a number of people have expressed interest in taking over for the Republican presidential candidate.

Leeza Gibbons was named the winner of the most recent 7th edition of "The Celebrity Apprentice."
