Tyra Banks to host new lifestyle talk show

Tyra Banks Talk Show

Nearly four years to the day that The Tyra Show ended filming, Disney-ABC announced Tyra Banks is returning to the daily talk show lineup.

“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. 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.”

Topics will range from “fashion and beauty to home and entertaining to empowerment and individual enterprise.” The show will also feature celebrities, Internet influencers, experts and “everyday people.”

Janice Marinelli, president of Disney-ABC Domestic Television, said the new show will feature Tyra’s distinct “personal message of self-confidence” to the syndication marketplace. She added, “Tyra is an enormous and vibrant talent with widespread appeal.”

Lisa Hackner, ABC Entertainment Group’s executive vice-president of daytime and syndicated programming, said they pursued working with Tyra because she is “truly unique in that she is both aspirational and extremely relatable to women of all ages.”

“Tyra is more relevant than ever,” Lisa said. “She is the ideal personality to infuse lifestyle content with fresh energy, humor and the practical information the daytime audience craves.”

The currently unnamed, Los Angeles-based show will premiere in 2015.
