Tyra Banks wants to know if you are ready to get your Smize on.
The former model who makes her return to daytime TV this fall in a new talk show was announced on Thursday as the host for the 42Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
She promises to “be fierce,” adding that she “can’t wait to bring a fresh edge and lots of surprises to the show. It’s a big year! I’m shaking things up, starting with a new look and a brand-new daytime talk show launching in the fall.”
Banks previously had a successful daytime talk show from 2005 to 2011, for which she won two Daytime Emmys.
Now Banks is at the center of a new roundtable panel lifestyle show called The Fab Life, which is being launched into national syndication this September by Disney/ABC Domestic TV.
FAB, which stands for “fun and beautiful,” features Banks and four co-hosts talking about fashion, food, decorating and do-it-yourself.
The Daytime Emmys return to television Sunday, April 26, after being digital-only last year on the CBS and Lionsgate-owned Pop network (formerly the TV Guide Network).
“I’m pumped,” says Banks, “to be partnering with a fun, new network like Pop to celebrate daytime TV and the diehard fans that watch every day. Let’s do this!”
“With Tyra Banks as our host,” says Bob Mauro, president of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in New York, which awards the daytime honors, “all the pieces are falling into place for what I believe will be a truly memorable night on the legendary Warner Bros. Studios lot.”
Some 350 nominees are expected to be among those who attend the live telecast of the awards on Stage 16 on the lot in Burbank. This show will dish out honors for soap operas, talk shows, game shows and more.April 9, 2015 at 9:37 am #428881
Wow yet another win for the Daytime Emmys this year. Between it being televised, Betty White, and now Tyra Banks’ presence, there have been huge steps in the show’s credibility this year.
Now how well Tyra will be received remains to be seen. She is a big enough name to bring in more buzz so that’s already good news, and when she’s on her game she can be great so I’m hopeful.

They gotta get Kathy Griffin to present an award 🙂 🙂April 9, 2015 at 12:06 pm #428883
Pretty solid get overall! Kathy was killer last year though (even though the ceremony itself was awful).April 9, 2015 at 1:13 pm #428884
Too bad I won’t be able to watch…I have cable, but I don’t got Pop.April 9, 2015 at 4:00 pm #428885
Fun choice and a good grab for the Daytime Emmys. I love that they’re really making an effort to make these an event this year.April 9, 2015 at 4:58 pm #428886
GoMe91, I wonder if poptv might be livestreaming it? It’s worth at least seeing if it will… I hope you get to see the show! (:
I hope Tyra Banks is unobtrusive and just hosts, keeps things moving along at a fast clip! (:
I don’t care about game/talk shows, so the Daytime Emmys is always a time for something good to read until my soap categories come on… SO looking forward to this year’s Emmys and really hopeful that they are produced intelligently.April 9, 2015 at 4:59 pm #428887
btw, I definitely want to do a live thread during the Emmys this year! (:April 11, 2015 at 8:23 am #428888
Should be Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan. History makers, groundbreaking, and the Number 1 SuperCouple in daytime history. Diversity and recognize the history to make the Emmy’s a wider ratings win. A win-win.
