Tyra Banks is reportedly headed back to daytime TV. The former Victoria’s Secret model and TV personality will launch a new lifestyle show set to hit the airwaves in 2015. A wide range of topics will be presented on the new as-yet unnamed daytime talk show and guests will include experts on these topics.
“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me,” Banks said in a recent 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!”
Some of the topics Tyra Banks will cover on her new show include fashion, beauty, entertaining and individual enterprise. She has plans to introduce celebrities and people from all walks of life who can inspire and inform her viewers.
“With an extraordinary social media following and legions of fans built over her years on television, Tyra is more relevant than ever,” Lisa Hackner, the executive vice president of daytime and syndicated programming at ABC Entertainment Group said. “She is the ideal personality to infuse lifestyle content with fresh energy, humor, and the practical information the daytime audience craves.”
Disney-ABC’s Summerdale Productions will produce the show along with Banks. This will be Tyra’s second daytime show. The Tyra Banks Show ran from 2005 to 2010. She is also noted for producing and hosting America’s Next Top Model which now boasts 26 international versions. The hit CW show is one of the longest running reality shows on broadcast television.
Thereis no doubt that Tyra Banks’ new daytime show will also be a hit. Fans will be waiting eagerly to learn what she calls her new show and exactly when the first episode will air.
