Tyra Banks Named New Host of 'Dancing with the Stars'

Tyra Banks has a new gig.

The former host of ‘America’s Got Talent’ is now the host of the upcoming season of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

via TMZ:

Just a day after ABC dropped Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews leading into season 29, TMZ has learned the former supermodel is strutting her way into that role.

In addition to smizing in front of the camera, Tyra will also be an Executive Producer of the show. We’ve learned she was in talks with the network long before ABC cut ties with Tom and Erin.

On Monday, Tom announced the show would be continuing without him, and said his 15 years hosting were the “most unexpected gift of my career.” ABC and BBC released their own statement about Tom and Erin’s departures … saying the show is embarking “on a new creative direction.”

Sources close to Tom tell TMZ the news came as quite a shock to him, and he was only informed of his departure this week.

The one thing about Tyra — she stays getting to a bag. We’re not mad.
