Tyra Banks Take Over As New Host Of America’s Got Talent

By  | 

Retired supermodel Tyra Banks might not be walking the runways again but we know she is a woman of many talents. The former America Next Top Supermodel host is set to take over as the new host of America’s Got Talent.

This comes after the top three candidates, Marlon Wayans, Brandon Mychal Smith and Tone Bell couldn’t be made hosts.

Marlon was asking for more money than producers would pay, and then Brandon was tapped but we gather some people just weren’t down with it.

The show was scheduled to begin filming last week but one of the judges, Mel B of Spice Girls had a death in her family when her father died causing a postponement.

Howie Mandel has however confirmed over the weekend that Tyra is the new host of the show with Tyra confirming it as well.

It would be recalled that Nick Cannon who was formerly married to Mariah Carey quit the show leading to the search for a new host.
