The CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff announced Thursday that America's Next Top Model's next winner will receive a cover photo and spread with Vogue Italia instead of Seventeen magazine, The Los Angeles Timesreported.
"[Top Model creator Tyra Banks] really wanted to take the series to sort of another level," Ostroff told reporters at The CW's upfront presentation at Madison Square Garden, The Times reported.
"For the last four years and seven cycles, America's Next Top Model has been a fantastic friend (with benefits!) but we both thought it was time we started seeing other people," Seventeen editor-in-chief Ann Shoket said in a statement, according to The Times.
"Seventeen magazine and America's Next Top Model had a very strong partnership for so long because our 13 million readers are their core audience. But like in any relationship both partners need to evolve and keep growing to keep your brand vital."
The CW renewedAmerica's Next Top Model for a fifteenth season in February and it will continue to air in its traditional Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot during the 2010-2011 primetime programming season.
