Los Angeles - Tyra Banks won't host the revival of America's Next Top Model.
The long-running show was dropped last year by The CW Network after a 22-season run but recently picked up by VH1 and although Tyra will remain involved as an executive producer, she has decided not to present the show.
Tyra said in a statement: "After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn. I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host. I'm pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!"
The show will kick off with a 14-episode series and Chris McCarthy, General Manager of VH1 said: "We're thrilled to bring America's Next Top Model back to VH1 and partner with CBS Television Distribution and Tyra Banks to reinvent this franchise for a whole new generation. This is a homecoming for the series, as VH1 helped catapult the show to cultural icon status as the first cable network to air the show after it launched."
A new host and panel will be announced in the next few months.
