Tyra Banks is returning to daytime TV with a brand new talk show that’s set to debut next year!
The former Victoria’s Secret model announced over the weekend that she’s teaming up with Disney and ABC networks for a new chat show.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Tyra, who also created “America’s Next Top Model,” will be acting as the host and executive producer of her lifestyle show! This will be Tyra’s second round as a chat diva; her original series, “The Tyra Banks Show” aired from 2005-2010.
Tyra said that she was drawn back to daytime TV because of her intense desire to continue encouraging women everywhere.
“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me,” Tyra said in a statement. “I’m excited to be partnering with Disney-ABC to usher in a new era of lifestyle, beauty and entertainment that will inspire women to be the CEO of their lives via honesty, humor and the newest tips and tricks without being intimidating or precious.”
She then addressed her fans. “To my fierce fam of future viewers: I can’t wait to shake up daytime TV together. I have a lot of information to give and still lots to learn. Let’s do it!” she said.
Tyra “will be gabbing about everything from fashion and beauty to entertainment and business on the as-yet untitled show. She’ll also be welcoming a host of guests like celebrities, experts and even everyday people to chat with her and drive conversations.
With her experience as a TV personality and her popularity, ABC Entertainment Group believes that Tyra is the perfect woman to head up this new series.
“With an extraordinary social media following and legions of fans built over her years on television, Tyra is more relevant than ever,” said Lisa Hackner, a programming exec at ABC Entertainment Group. “She is the ideal personality to infuse lifestyle content with fresh energy, humor, and the practical information the daytime audience craves.”
