SHE’S BACK! Tyra Banks Guns For TV Crown As Host Of ‘America’s Next Top Model’
Tyra Banks is gunning for her TV crown! After nabbing the “America’s Got Talent” gig, she will now be returning to her hit series “America’s Next Top Model.” Deets inside…
Well looks who’s ready to take over our televisions once again!
Tyra Banks will return as host of her long-running model competition show “America’s Next Top Model.” . She will still serve in her executive producer role, alongside Ken Mok, as well. The new cycle is set to begin production this summer and the rest of the panelists will be announced at a later date.
“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ‘ANTM’ fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart. After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn’t enough because ‘ANTM’ is woven into my DNA.,” Tyra said in a press release.
“ANTM” got cancelled in October 2015 after running 22 seasons on the UPN network. Then, VH1 picked it up in February 2016 and Rita Ora was tapped as the new host. Tyra still worked on the show behind-the-scenes, but now she’s back in front of the cameras. Womp.
I love you!!! https://t.co/yYJ5YC9Vv9

This news comes days after it was announced that the fashion mogul would replace Nick Cannon as the host of “America’s Got Talent.”
So, as you can see, Tyra is clearly making a comeback for her TV crown. We’re sure “ANTM” fans are more than happy to hear she’s returning.
