The famous host will turn her attention to launching Bankable Studios – a New York based company which is currently looking at various projects.

Banks wants to focus her attention on “bringing positive images of women to the big screen” according to insiders.

“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 revealed.

With encouragement from her friends, filmmaker Tyler Perry and her mentor Oprah Winfrey, Banks is hoping to conquer the big screen by following her dream of moving into film producing.

“There’s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart,” Banks writes in an open letter on her website.

“And I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.”
