Tyra Banks quits talk show

Tyra Banks is putting an end to her daytime gig after a five year run.

The model-turned-talk show host told People.com: “This will be the last season of The Tyra Show. I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.”

The program, which has won two Daytime Emmys, will wrap in spring 2010, after which Tyra will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, a production outfit that aims to get positive images of women to the big screen.

“My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,” she added.

Hmmm…sounds like someone’s following in Oprah’s footsteps.

However, Tyra’s fans shouldn’t worry because America’s Next Top Model and True Beauty will still carry on.
