Fashion icon Tyra Banks will return to her series, “America’s Next Top Model” as host. The media maven posted the above photo Thursday evening all over social media along with the following caption: “I missed my Top Model baby, so Mama’s back! #ANTM #ANTM24.”
According to an official VH1 press release, Banks will serve as host for the next cycle which is slated to begin shooting this summer. She will also executive produce the show along with her long time collaborator—Ken Mok. Additional panelists will be announced at a later date.
“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ‘ANTM’ fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart,” said Banks. “After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn’t enough because ‘ANTM’ is woven into my DNA.”
This past cycle was hosted by the multi-talented Rita Ora along with guest judges—celebrity stylist Law Roach, PAPER Magazine’s Drew Elliott and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and full-figured diva Ashley Graham.
