Following in the footsteps of her mentor Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks has announced an end date to her daytime talk show.

      “This will be the last season of The Tyra Show,” Banks tells “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.”

      Once the current fifth season is a done deal, Banks says she will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, her N.Y.-based film production company founded to bring positive images of women to the big screen.       

       “My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,” Banks says.       

       Meanwhile, Tyra’s primetime reality series, “America’s Next Top Model,” will begin Cycle 15 in February along with her ABC show “True Beauty,” a collaboration with Ashton Kutcher.      

       “There’s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart,” Banks writes in an open letter on her Web site. “And I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.”
