“America’s Got Talent” nabbed a new host over the weekend, and now NBC’s long-running reality series might as well be renamed “America’s Got Top Model.”
The network announced Sunday that Tyra Banks, creator and executive producer of “America’s Next Top Model,” will be replacing Nick Cannon as host when the series returns for Season 12.
Banks returns to the realm of reality television after hosting “America’s Next Top Model” from 2003 to 2015, when it was canceled by the CW.
When the series was revived a year later on VH1, Banks returned only as executive producer, with Rita Ora replacing her.
