Tyra Banks To Return to ‘ANTM’ As Head Judge
Tyra Banks is returning to “America’s Next Top Model,” as head judge.
This is the second job Banks has landed in a week, as this news comes right after she was announced as the new host of “America’s Got Talent.”
Production on the new season is scheduled to begin this summer, with additional panelists TBD.
Pop star Rita Ora previously served as the main judge for the “ANTM” reboot.
Executive producer Ken Mok also commented on the move: “Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize. We’d like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro,” he said in a statement. “She infused this new iteration of ANTM with passion and creativity and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”
