Tyra Banks Named New Host of ‘America’s Got Talent’
Tyra Banks is the new host of “America’s Got Talent.”
Current judge, Howie Mandel made the announcement on Twitter this past Sunday.
Banks replaces Nick Cannon, who served as host of the show since 2009. Cannon announced last month that he was leaving the show after a falling out with the network over a joke he told on a Showtime comedy special.
Season 12 of “America’s Got Talent” begins filming this month, along with judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Mel B.
