Tyra Banks gets a new daytime talk show
Banks will host and serve as executive producer on the show, which will feature the fashion and beauty icon leading a team of lifestyle experts in a wide range of topics.
"The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me," Banks says 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. 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!"
ABC is very excited to have Banks at the hub of their new venture, "She is the ideal personality to infuse lifestyle content with fresh energy, humor, and the practical information the daytime audience craves," says Lisa Hackner, executive vp of daytime and syndicated programming at ABC Entertainment Group.
This will be the former Victoria Secret model's second daytime talk show. "The Tyra Banks Show" ran from 2005-10. In addition, Banks has produced and hosted The CW's "America's Next Top Model" since 2003.
