Tyra Banks attends the Time 100 gala in New York City in 2012.
America's Next Top Model creator Tyra Banks will get another crack at hosting a daytime talk show starting in 2015, Disney-ABC announced Friday.
Her first talk-show stint — The Tyra Banks Show — ended in 2010 after five years in syndication and then on The CW, where it was rebranded with the shortened title Tyra.
Banks will serve as executive producer of the still-untitled syndicated talker, broadcast from Los Angeles. It will feature experts discussing such topics as fashion, beauty, home, entertainment, empowerment and enterprise. Similar to her previous endeavor, celebrity guests will make appearances as will web personalities and "everyday people."
"The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me," Banks said in a statement. "
To my fierce fam of future viewers: I can’t wait to shake up daytime TV together.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!"
Disney-ABC touted her hefty social media following (28 million) and desire to incorporate interactive digital elements, just like she's done on America's Next Top Model, a long-running modeling competition that eventually infused online voting starting in season 19 in 2012.
Banks' new venture shoehorns into a crowded market: Depending on what time it airs, it will have to battle for viewers against syndicated shows hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, Wendy Williams, Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Rachael Ray, Dr. Phil and more — as well as network TV talk shows like The Talk, The View and Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
Banks won't have to fend off competition from Katie Couric, Trisha Goddard or Bethenny Frankel, though, as their shows have been recently axed.
