Tyra Banks Leaving “Dancing with the Stars” After Three Seasons

After a three-season stint, Tyra Banks is stepping down as host of Dancing with the Stars, according to Deadline.

What’s Happening:

  • Tyra Banks first began hosting Dancing with the Stars in season 29, taking over for long-time host Tom Bergeron.
  • According to Deadline, her tenure had mixed results; “while she added a different level of energy to the ballroom, her live exchanges with both the judges and the contestants were often awkward. Her grand entrances also upstaged the pros, who remain a huge draw for longtime DWTS fans.”
  • As the show moved from ABC to Disney+ last season, America’s Funniest Home Videos host Alfonso Ribeiro joined Banks as co-host.
  • A new season has yet to be announced by Disney+, but it is expected to continue.
  • Other previously announced departures include judge Len Goodman and dancing pros Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas.
