Four years after leaving the coach of her self-titled series, Tyra Banks is making a return to daytime TV. This time, she’s hosting a lifestyle talk show for Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
The 40-year-old beauty broke the news on her Instagram account. “Yup, you read that right! TyTy + @Disney / @ABCnetwork teaming up to shake up the talk show world in 2015,” she shared with the following picture. “You ready?”
According to Disney-ABC, the new program will “lead a team of lifestyle experts on a wide-range of topics.”
“Tyra is an enormous and vibrant talent with widespread appeal and we’re eager to introduce her new lifestyle show that will incorporate her personal message of self-confidence to the syndication marketplace,” Janice Marinelli, president of Disney-ABC Domestic Television, said in a statement.
“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me,” the supermodel added about the new opportunity. “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!”
Her previous stint on “The Tyra Banks Show” ran from 2005-2010.
In related talk show news, Wendy Williams will be working through her summer hiatus for the second year in a row. According to reports, her successful show will continue production through July, delivering more hot topics to devoted fans and viewers.
“We believe the ratings strength we’ve seen over the past season and during the May sweeps, despite having weaker lead-ins, is due in part to remaining in year-round production since last summer,” Debmar-Mercury co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a statement. “By keeping the lights on throughout June and July, in a quiet period traditionally reserved for first-run shows to take their summer hiatuses, we intend to once again follow a strategy that has worked very well for us this past year.”
