Tyra Banks to end syndicated talk show

Tyra Banks is pulling the plug on her talk show.

The former model says the syndicated "The Tyra Show" will end after its fifth season. Banks says she's sticking with the reality show "America's Next Top Model" and is forming a new production studio with plans to make movies. She also promised new digital projects but wouldn't give details.

In a statement on her Web site, Banks also paid tribute to talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey , who's ending her talk show in 2011.

About her own show, Banks told fans: "I've been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past five years."

Heller wouldn't disclose who signed the note or what it said.

The 32-year-old Gosselin rose to fame on TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8" before splitting with wife Kate this year.

CrimeStoppers announced the reward on Monday.

Someone forced his way through a locked window at Nelly's Wildwood, Mo., home in the early hours of Dec. 11 and got away with a duffel bag full of items that included electronics and other goods.
