Tyra Banks is ready to say goodbye Dancing with the stars after hosting the ballroom dancing competition series for three years.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the supermodel’s plans to step down as emcee after she told TMZ: “I think it’s time to really focus on my business and entrepreneurship, but also to produce more TV, but behind the scenes. So you know what? I think it’s time to move from the dance floor to the trading floor.”
In 2020, Banks replaced Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as sole DWTS host for its 29th season.
After years of airing on ABC, the long-running reality competition moved to Disney+ last season.
Banks has yet to formalize her departure and her representatives have not commented on her video TMZ. But the DWTS host recently launched her SMiZE & Dream brand ice product.
DWTS features celebrities paired with professional partners as they compete to become the season’s winner. Banks also follows Len Goodman, who also recently announced his departure from the league series.
Goodman has been the head celebrity judge on the ballroom competition series since the show debuted on ABC in 2005. He judges with others DWTS mainstays Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
Banks is no stranger to TV. Her extensive credits in front of and behind the camera include hosting and executive producing America’s next top model And The Tyra Banks Show and she also enjoyed a stint hosting America’s Got Talent.
