Tyra Banks Lands New Host of NBC TV Show

Tyra Banks announced over the weekend that she will be the new host of “America’s Got Talent.” After Nick Cannon quit the show claiming producers wouldn’t allow him to be himself. “America’s Got Talent” has been on the hunt for a new host. However it comes as a surprise Banks landed the job seeing as she wasn’t of the top three people they were considering. The show was leaning toward Marlon Wayans as the new host, but according to Tmz, Marlon was asking for more money than producers wanted to pay.

Nevertheless, Banks has been hired as new host and her co-stars: Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell all seem to be very welcoming to the ex-model. Mandel even posted a video announcing the news, so it looks like season 12 is off to a good start.
